GMommy upper eyelid blepharoplasty is predicated on the fact that most GMommys endure prolonged aging of the eyelids. This results in upper eyelid skin redundancy and fascial stretching.
GMommy Redundant Skin
Plastic surgeons recognize redundant eyelid skin as crepe excess that leans over the upper eyelid skin margin. When moderate in redundancy, the weight of the skin can push the lid margin down and block off the pupil. Severe skin redundancy can roll over the lid margin and block your vision. The correction for the upper eyelid skin redundancy is trimming the excess upper eyelid skin. Your plastic surgeon excises the redundant skin, allowing the excision line to fall within the supratarsal crease. This is the natural crease of the upper eyelid.
GMommy Stretching out of the Eyelid Elevator
GMommy upper eyelid blepharoplasty may also require repair of the eyelid elevator fascia that connects the lifting muscle to the tarsal plate of your eyelid. This fascial lining often thins out with age and the effects of gravity thus resulting in loss of support to the upper lid margin. The result is the covering of the window of your globe, called the pupil and thus difficulty with your vision. In GMommies with lid droop that is not corrected when the redundant eyelid skin is lifted, levator fascia repair must be included in addition to the elimination of the skin redundancy.
