    Hello Im going to do the lower eyelid surgery soon and I have a question do you feel any pain during the surgery?? thanks

    I only perform this procedure in my certified operating room with a board certified anesthesiologist. Sterility and your comfort and safety are very important to me. You feel no pain when I perform this procedure. some doctors perform this in a "regular" examining room. They cannot guarantee these things in that environment.

    I only perform this surgery in my certified operating room with a board certified anesthesiologist. Your comfort and safety are my main concerns. I make sure that you feel no pain through out the procedure.

    People have the procedure so that they can look younger and more refreshed. Many times it is performed to help them improve their vision.

    The surgery is to remove the excess skin from the upper eyelids that makes us look older or block our vision. On the lower eyelids the procedure removes the "bags" that make us look tired.

    Ptosis is a drooping of the eyelid from the levator muscle weakening or slipping. I t can be performed with or without blepharoplasty.

    Hi mbleph, thank you very much for this video.

    You have mentioned that you also use the Coherent laser for the same procedure. In your opinion, how do the two lasers compare to each other?

    If it is Ok with you, can you please let us know the settings you have used on the Mixto laser for performing this blepharoplasty.

    Thank you in advance.

    Both lasers have excellent results and effectiveness for skin and fat excision and contouring.

    does it hurt after the surgery? and how long it takes to heal??…. it looks painful
    thank you (:

    Most patients respond that they have no pain after surgery. The majority of healing occurs within one week. The procedure is performed in an accredited operating room with an anesthesiologist and thus is pain free.

    The laser can be used instead of a scalpel blade for this purpose.

    Does this need stitches? If so, when you remove the stitches, does it hurt? And how many stitches will you need ?

  25. Mark N. Berkowitz October 9, 2011 at 7:49 pm - Reply

    One running stitch is used. NO it does not hurt upon removal. As a matter of fact the majority of my patients state that the entire process is extremely easy for them.

    I take 3 separate measurements: first, with the patient sitting up I measure the eyelid crease (normal line on the eyelid) . I then, tease the skin forward looking for the redundant skin and mark this. Second. before freezing the eyelid I gently pinch the skin making sure only the skin necessary is removed. Third, this is repeated prior to any skin removal.
