I am a fairly young male (34 years old) yet I have hooded eyes. I think they make me look too old. Exactly what would you do during a blepharoplasty to open my eyes up a bit?
A blepharoplasty is usually performed in the office under local anesthesia with and/or without some oral sedation. The natural crease of the eyelids are marked out, the redundant skin is tented up and marked out for removal. The redundant skin and at times a small fatty pocket are removed and the incision is closed with sutures. The sutures are removed one week later and the patient can usually return to social activities at that time.
