anonymous in Georgia SAID:

I underwent blepharoplasty for both eyes, upper and lower to “freshen up” my eye area. Consequently my eyes are smaller, one being slightly smaller than the other, rather than the fresh open look I anticipated, and I really have to struggle to place my contacts in my eyes. My eyes were one of my best features and I most often received compliments about them. Can something be done to make my eyes somewhat larger and more equal in size?

    Dear Madame,
    I’m sorry to hear about your result. It sounds like maybe too much was done. You will need to see a board
    certified Plastic Surgeon or Oculo-Plastic surgeon who has a lot of experience. There may be a solution,
    however this is something that can’t be determined without an examination. In your search for a surgeon,
    always consider a second consultation. There may be something that can be done that is as simple as
    fat grafting or possibly an implant of some type.
    I would be happy to see you for an evaluation, or if I think there is someone more qualified, I can help you
    find them.
    Dr. Tony Musarra

    Thank you for your question about your blepharoplasty. I am sorry about your disappointing result. You need to be examined to decide what caused this. It may be swelling early after surgery – or too much fat removed. You may want a second opinion. We would be happy to see you. If you see any plastic surgeon for a second opinion, bring before/after photos and a copy of your first surgeon’s operative note. Let us know if we can help Best wishes.
