In its most complicated form, blepharoplasty involves an incision in each upper lid at the crease, through which bulging fat and excess skin or muscle are trimmed. If you have puffiness from protruding fat as well as excess skin and muscle, that sometimes requires a similar incision just below the lower lid lashes. Patients with puffiness in the lower lids but without much extra lower lid skin can often undergo fat removal through the inside of the lower lid, thereby avoiding the external scar and giving a quicker recovery.

As we age, a number of things happen in differing amounts and at different rates in each of us. Each of these aging changes needs to be diagnosed and treated individually and in varying amounts. Some patients need all of them treated; some, only a few. That is why facelift surgery at our New Hampshire practice, between Manchester and the Massachusetts border, is tailored to the individual patient, addressing the specific problems that he or she is concerned with.

Imagine that you know nothing about either operation, but that the open method has been the traditional rhinoplasty technique, instead of the other way around. The scars are visible and not always good, recovery is significant, the tip must be supported by artificial means (struts or sutures), and many of the changes are created by non-anatomic methods, and the less experienced surgeon does not have precise control over the result.
