Blepharoplasty
ByBrian Leatherbarrow
Pages 36

INTRODUCTION The term blepharoplasty is used to refer to an operation in which redundant tissues including skin, or skin and muscle, are excised from the eyelid, and in which fat may be excised, sculpted or repositioned. The appearance of the eyelids, and the periorbital region, plays a pivotal role in maintaining facial harmony through expression of human character, mood and emotions, and a successful outcome from this surgery requires great attention to detail.
