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)!!!
