Epidemic of Post-blepharoplasty Hollowness

While hollowness under the eyes may naturally occur with age, it is also a result of adverse blepharoplasty. The process of blepharoplasty or cosmetic eyelid surgery removes excess skin, fat and muscle from the eyelids. However if a competent and skilled surgeon does not perform this surgery it can result in post-blepharoplasty hollowness. There are various reasons for post-blepharoplasty hollowness, these include;

• Excessive removal of fat: The fat from the eyelids needs to removed judiciously and excessive removal does not translate into a good surgery but in fact causes hollowness in the area.

• Excessive removal of skin: A lot of people think that a higher crease in the eyelid will make them look younger, but this is not the case. The amount of skin that needs to be removed has to be decided from case to case and should be done in accordance to the natural facial features of the individual. A good surgeon such as Honolulu, Hawaii based Dr. Michael Pasquale ensures that the patient understands all aspects of the eyelid surgery and the techniques and methods used. A common mistake is the removal of upper eyelid that is caused due to the absorption of orbital fat.

• Un-required removal of muscle from the eyelids is another reason for post-blepharoplasty hollowness. In fact in most cases removal of muscle may not be essential and it allows the eyelid to maintain a more natural look. Furthermore this will help prevent any closure problems in the future.

• In cases where the fat in the upper eyelids is already lacking a brow lift will only accentuate this point and give an appearance of hollowness.

How to avoid post-blepharoplasty hollowness

One of the best ways to avoid post-blepharoplasty hollowness is by selecting a good plastic or cosmetic surgeon for the procedure. There may be many surgeons who offer cosmetic eyelid surgery but you want to choose a surgeon who is not only qualified and competent but is experienced, talented and skillful. Cosmetic surgery is more than a science it is also an art and the result is going to stare back at you every day. Unfortunately many surgeons are going in for aggressive blepharoplasty when it is not required. Honolulu, Hawaii is considered the No. 1 choice of people who want to have cosmetic eyelid surgery done. This is mainly due to the superb surgical and medical care available here and also as it provides a wonderful location to relax and recover in. At the hands of a skillful and experienced surgeon such as Dr. Michael Pasquale, who has completed his residency in plastic surgery and earned a 2-year training certificate from NYU Downtown, Manhattan, the cosmetic eyelid surgery will show remarkable changes in the manner in which the person appears.

At our clinic at Honolulu, Hawaii each case is given due importance and attention and decisions are made based on the requirements of each individual. Dr. Pasquale believes in cosmetic eyelid surgery that enhances a person�s natural features rather than changing them dramatically.
