Eyelid Surgery

Because the eyes are among the most expressive parts of the face, aesthetic flaws around the eyes are often the most noticeable. Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Albert Chow has the training and expertise necessary to reshape the eyes subtly or dramatically, correcting for drooping and sagging as well as the lack of a crease common among patients of Asian descent. He offers eyelid surgery, technically called blepharoplasty, in San Francisco, as an ideal solution to almost any aesthetic flaw around the eyes.

Eyelid surgery alone may be enough to transform your whole face by accentuating and enhancing your natural beauty.

Improvements From Eyelid Surgery

Often combined with facial rejuvenation procedures such as a brow lift or a facelift, blepharoplasty involves the removal of excess fat and skin from the upper and lower eyelids and the area below the eyes. By tightening drooping lids and reducing puffy bags, Dr. Chow gives patients a more energetic, alert appearance. Additionally, because he tailors treatment to meet the individual needs of each patient, Dr. Chow provides eyelid surgery results that look incredibly natural.

During your consultation, Dr. Chow will meet with you privately to discuss your appearance goals and determine whether you are an appropriate candidate for blepharoplasty, or if another treatment option is better suited to your needs.

Double Eyelid Surgery

Double eyelid surgery, also called Asian eyelid surgery, is a popular procedure among San Francisco women and men who lack a crease in their upper eyelids. In some cases, this procedure may also be used to expose and accentuate a crease that is faint or poorly defined. These conditions are particularly common among patients of Asian descent. Dr. Chow also performs specialized versions of the facelift and rhinoplasty for Asian patients.

Whatever the case requires, Dr. Chow works closely with each patient to establish a treatment plan consistent with his or her goals and needs. As a result, he is able to produce exceptional results without infringing upon the unique and desirable characteristics of his Asian patients' eyes.

Dr. Chow explains the improvements specific to Asian eyelid surgery.

Revision Eyelid Surgery

Ideally, every cosmetic surgeon would perform eyelid surgery that satisfies the needs of his or her patients. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. With his expertise in advanced eyelid surgery techniques, Dr. Chow is able to perform revision eyelid surgery to correct the results of another doctor's failed blepharoplasty. In particular, Dr. Chow can correct hollowed eyelids that are sometimes an unwanted side effect of eyelid surgery.

Revision eyelid surgery is a complex procedure that is absolutely unique to each patient. Dr. Chow takes into account both the results and side effects of the previous surgery, as well as the patient's individual goals, to ensure the best possible results.
