What Is FFS Blepharoplasty?

A blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift, is best known for its ability to address signs of premature aging, such as dark circles under the eyes, sagging upper or lower eyelids, fine lines, and wrinkles. These aging eye conditions can add years to your appearance and even impair your vision. More than just wanting a more youthful look, we find that patients are searching for a more rested or happy look, which an eyelid lift can accomplish well. 

In addition to being a fantastic rejuvenation procedure for the eyes, it is also a common procedure to add to an FFS surgery. A blepharoplasty cannot only take years off of the appearance of the eye, but it can also feminize the appearance of the eyes as well. For those undergoing their transformation journey, a blepharoplasty lifts and shapes the eyes to make them more almond shaped or round for a gorgeous, feminine appearance.

What Is Canthopexy and Canthoplasty?

A canthopexy is another surgical procedure that addresses the outer corner of the eyes, also known as the lateral canthus, where the upper and lower eyelids meet. A canthopexy procedure involves sutures that are used to stabilize and reinforce the lateral canthal tendon without altering the horizontal length of the eyelid or position of the canthus. Instead, it improves tone and helps relieve the look of sunken eyes. A canthopexy can also be used to further refine the results of a blepharoplasty to help preserve the shape of the lower lid, not necessarily to change it. Sometimes, if the lower lid is not supported after a lower lid blepharoplasty, it can get pulled down. A canthopexy keeps the eyelids in place beautifully.  Canthoplasty is a procedure where the lateral canthus attachment is released and repositioned in a higher position to reshape the outer corner of the eye.  This procedure can improve both function and cosmetic appearance of the eyelids.

People wanting to pursue an eyelid surgery find that they often look older or more tired than they feel. This is in large part due to a loss of skin elasticity in the lower eyelids or upper eyelids, which leads to sagging. For some people, their pursuit of eyelid surgery is due to their eyes not expressing their individual aesthetic, meaning they would like their eyes to appear more feminine.

Ideal candidates for eyelid surgery in Atlanta, GA include people who want to address common signs of aging around the eyes and create a more feminine aesthetic by changing the shape of their eyes. To determine if you’re a healthy candidate for eyelid surgery, during your consultation, Dr. Huynh will ask you questions about your overall health, any medical issues you might have or had in the past, and any medication that you’re currently on. Dr. Huynh also asks that his patients be non-smokers or to stop smoking for at least 3 weeks before their procedure and for 6 weeks after their procedure as smoking can cause serious complications and impair the results of your eyelid surgery.
