Improve Upper Eyelid & Brow
Improving Upper Eyelid & Brow in Thyroid Eye Disease
At the International Orbital Institute, our goal is to provide our patients with customized thyroid eye disease treatment. In addition to correcting the functional issues associated with thyroid eye disease through orbital decompression, Dr. Raymond Douglas also strives to provide his patients with the best aesthetic outcome as well. Patients are evaluated on an individual basis so the best surgical plan can be created for them. In some cases, the eyebrow and upper eyelid can be very important components to the aesthetic appearance and overall function for the patient. Dr. Douglas can improve these areas through a couple of different approaches.
As an expert in the field, Dr. Douglas is able to achieve better function appearance by utilizing the following techniques:
- Reducing the brow fullness
- Camouflaging the brow fullness
- Augmenting the brow fullness (rare)
Furthermore, a selective decompression can be performed to further improve the appearance by hiding the lacrimal gland if it is prolapsed to achieve a very smooth upper eyelid and eyebrow.
In the pictures below you can see one of our patients before and after surgery. Prior to finding Dr. Douglas, this patient had multiple previous eyelid surgeries that left her with unsatisfactory results and an unwanted eyelid appearance. She underwent decompression and eyelid surgery with Dr. Douglas and is beyond happy with her functional and aesthetic results, specifically the upper eyelid and brow. She also sent us this beautiful family picture in which you can see how happy she is with her appearance by the big smile on her face!
Below is an example of the improved function and appearance of the upper eyelid and brow area following customized surgery with Dr. Douglas. She was incredibly happy with the results of her surgery!
For this patient, Dr. Douglas performed a decompression with anterior approach blepharotomy to improve her eyelid appearance. Her surgical results are very natural looking and she has told us she feels like herself again!
In her pre-surgery pictures you can see that this patient presented with hollow upper eyelids and prominent globe. To improve her appearance, Dr. Douglas added volume to the upper eyelid and brow area. She is incredibly pleased with her results.
Our goal is always to create a very natural looking appearance so that you look like you did before thyroid eye disease. After meeting you, Dr. Douglas will explain in detail how he will achieve this for your specific needs.
