This post on eyelid surgery techniques was written while I attended the 2013 EuroMediCom aesthetic medicine meeting in Monte Carlo.  I hope my readers find the topic interesting and relevant.

Some procedures really take an extra gentle touch; eyelid surgery is one of those procedures.  Gentle not only in the technical execution, but also in the planning.  Gentle planning and gentle technique take patience and to some degree an artistic view.  By ‘gentle planning’, I mean setting a goal for eyelid surgery that will result in a refreshed and natural appearance that is not overdone.  This should result in a look that is a younger version of yourself as opposed to severe or over pulled. By ‘gentle technique’, I mean performing the actual procedure in such a way that the eyelids are handled delicately, minimizing trauma and unnecessary injury.  Doing so minimizes bruising and swelling, decreases recovery time and allows the patient to resume normal activities sooner.

Thank you for reading.
