PATIENT BACKGROUND: This delightful lady is interested in improving the appearance of her upper eyelids and possible lip fillers for the line on her lips. She was referred to Dr. Mariotti by a friend and long time patient and M Spa member. During the consultation she explained, as she nestles into her late 40’s she simply feels that her upper eyelids makes her look more tired than she is or feels.
DR. MARIOTTI’S IMPRESSION: “A focused examination of the eyes reveal changes consistent with normal facial aging. I suggested an upper blepharoplasty, otherwise known as an eyelid lift and Juavderm Ultra for her lips”. An upper blepharoplasty uses an incision placed inconspicuously within the crease of the upper eyelid. The excess skin is removed within the crease, making the scar very hard to notice. The eyelids are initially a little swollen, but the results are often seen after only a few days following surgery.
FOLLOW UP/OUTCOME: 5 days after the surgery her incisions were already healing nicely. At the 3 ½ month followup this beautiful young woman is doing excellentl and now looks as young as she feels.
