While by now you may have heard repeatedly about the many surgical options in the world of blepharoplasty and may finally be feeling comfortable with much of the technical jargon used by eyelid surgeons, can you really picture in your mind what is happening during any of these operations?
It's one thing to read a simplified or even detailed written description of a surgery and quite another thing to see it happening step-by-step. Even surgeons in training learn much more by watching, even if they don't yet understand every fine point of what they're seeing.
Many people learn best by intermixing reading, viewing, and contemplation. Videos of live surgery are indeed entertaining, but everything happens much too fast for a beginner. On the other hand, photo essays with clear explanations and commentary that can be read over and over again at whatever pace is most comfortable seem to offer the most effective way of getting a meaningful feel for a technical skill you wish to better understand.
What follows are a collection of detailed photo series of classic, newer, and cutting edge operations in blepharoplasty presented step-by-step with easy-to-follow written explanations. While not intended to turn you into an eyelid surgery specialist, they should provide the rich images you need to more fully appreciate what you've been reading so much about here and elsewhere.
