• BLEPHAROPLASTY PATIENT #1

    BEFORE

    AFTER

    This patient had been told by her doctors that she had some type of disease causing her eyes to be so swollen and discolored. Patient is a 65 year old woman who finally saw Dr Koo for a blepharoplasty consultation. Dr Koo explained that the natural fat inside the eye sockets–orbits–tend to protrude with age and weight gain. These cause the fullness in her upper and lower lids and the discoloration under the eyes.

    Dr Koo performed an upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty and was able to create a crisp upper eyelid and smooth natural looking lower eyelids. The patient feels she has even improved visual fields because of this (not to mention removing 20 years)!!!

    60ish Missouri male executive wanted to stop looking so tired. He was constantly asked if he felt ok because he looked worn out and fatigued. Dr Michele Koo performed an upper and lower eyelid rejuvenation for him as an outpatient. The after photograph is taken 3 months after the surgery: the patient has a clean crisp upper eyelid, the lower eyelid festoons, malar bags, and eyelid puffiness has been removed. Dr Koo removed the excess skin and fat from both the upper and lower lids rejuvenating the entire face. The patient looks very rested and smooth, NOT pulled, done or peculiar. The patient’s greatest fear especially as a male was to look fake and pulled. He has neither of these features and is thrilled to simply look more like he did 20 years ago, rested and refreshed! His friends, associates and even his wife tell him that he also doesn’t look as angry any more!!

    55 year old woman disliked looking tired and much older than her age. She didn’t want to change her look and was extremely nervous about people judging her because she had surgery. She, however, hated being ignored and not noticed at all because she was “old.” She felt invisible and hated it.

    Dr Michele Koo performed an upper and lower eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). She recovered in 2 weeks and was able to attend a big social function in 4 weeks. She LOVES her “new” eyes but no one has asked her if she had anything done.

    People pay attention to her again and she is no longer invisible according to the patient!

    BEFORE/AFTER

    56 year old St Louis area woman hated her baggy lower eyelids. They would turn dark and become fuller and fuller the later in the day it became. She disliked the hollow of the lower lids and the fullness of the fat and skin above the hollows. She didn’t like not being able to wear eye shadow and having her upper eyelid skin smudge her mascara constantly.

    Dr Michele Koo created a crispy single upper eyelid and removed the fat of the lower eyelids smoothing the skin to remove the hollow and the fat above them. She no longer has a break between her eyelid and her cheek. The patient’s upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty (eyelid rejuvenation) took one and a half hours and the patient was able to go home and drive in 2 days and return to work in 7. Usually there is swelling that can last one month to 3 months, but after one month, the eyes look very presentable.

    Notice even her jawline and cheek area seem smoother and the overall face more rested, full and softer.

    FRONT BEFORE/AFTER

    SIDE BEFORE/AFTER

    Active 60’s year old woman was frustrated with appearing worn and tired. She was an active, dynamic woman who enjoyed working out and traveling and simply felt her looks were inconsistent with how she felt. She did not want to be “invisible” and “irrelevant” any longer. She asked Dr Koo for her suggestions for an overall facial rejuvenation.

    Dr Koo performed a lower facelift addressing primarily the jawline, marionette lines, naso-labial folds, and the “turkey neck.” She also performed an upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty (eye lift) to remove the “tired” look. The eyes are what every one sees first and Dr Koo felt that creating clean crisp eyelid creases and taking away the eyelid “bags” and filling in the sunken areas below the eye area would significantly remove the signs of “aging.” Dr Koo believes in creating the natural better you, not a surgical you.
