    Dr Francis Palmer’s Eyelid Surgery on “The View”

The eyes contribute significantly to facial beauty but are the first to show signs of aging. This explains why Eyelid Surgery is one of the most common Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery Procedures performed. Internationally acclaimed for his research on beauty, Dr Palmer found that women’s eyes look their best when they appear “almond shaped” with arched and shapely eyebrows. Men, on the other hand, have low eyebrows with less obvious upper eyelid creases. Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) is a procedure designed to make the eyes look more youthful and naturally attractive by removing excess skin and fat from the eyelids.

Eyelid Surgery Indications

  • Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) can reverse the signs of aging of the upper and or lower eyelids. With age, gravity pulls the upper eyelid skin downward creating extra creases and folds. The earliest indication, for women, is difficulty applying makeup and eye shadow to the upper eyelid due to these increased skin folds and creases. Further signs of aging appear as excess skin, wrinkles and fat bugles appear along the upper and or lower eyelids.
  • Eyelid Surgery can be used to remove aging from the eyelids and can be adjusted to account for aesthetic differences between men and women. Males and Females differ in how the eyes look aesthetically. This affects what the Eyelid Surgery is trying to accomplish.
  • Eyebrow position does affect the appearance of upper eyelid fullness and must be taken into account when considering upper Eyelid Surgery. A knowledgeable evaluation of the upper eyes and eyebrows is required to determine if a Brow Lift, Upper Eyelid Surgery or a combination of both will give the very best aesthetic results. For men, this is far less important until the eyebrows are so low as to literally obstruct the vision, which typically occurs only with advanced age.
