Procedure techniques & scars
Dr. Mok will first evaluate the skin of the eyelid as well as the patient’s bone structure and anatomy. By considering the position and shape of the eyebrow and orbital bones he can provide very natural and beautiful results.
During a blepharoplasty an incision is made to remove the excess skin of the upper or lower eyelid. Extra fat can give patients a puffy and swollen look to the eye, and it is for this reason that excess fat may be excised through this incision as well. Both eyelids can be performed during one surgery.
Once the extra skin and fat has been removed, Dr. Mok will drape and reshape the skin of the eyelids to create a tighter look and feel. He will then suture the incision together and create a very thin scar line that sits nicely in the crease of the eye. Once the incision has healed, only traces of the scar line can be seen by those who know about the surgery.
