This is a 42 year old patient from La Jolla, California who had been interested in eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) for many years. She was looking for a La Jolla Plastic Surgeon. She felt that she always looked tired and many of her friends commented about her “tired looking” eyes. Her eyes felt heavy on top and had the bags on the bottom. No matter how well rested she was, she was unable to get rid of the “bags” under her eyes.
She met with Dr. Pousti several times to discuss the procedure and the potential risks and complications of blepharoplasty surgery. Markings were performed and the patient underwent upper and lower blepharoplasty surgery with no complications.
As you can see from the photos, the “fat pockets” were removed from the lower eyelid area as well as the upper medial area (close to her nose). By removing these “fat pockets”, the patient has now achieved a nicer, flatter appearance around the eyes. She no longer looks “tired”.
She is now 3 months post-op eyelid surgery and very happy with her results.
