The eyes are the first place we look when talking with someone. And nothing gives away the effects of age and gravity than droopy, tired eyes or bags under the eyes. Excess fat, wrinkles and hooded lids creates a fatigued and older look.
With eyelid surgery, medically known as a blepharoplasty, Dr. Harceaga can help rejuvenate the appearance surrounding the eyes, improving the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. This provides patients with a more youthful, rested and more alert look.
Dr. Harceaga can perform both upper and lower blepharoplasty:
Approximately 50% of Asians are born without a visible upper eyelid crease – a fold in the area just above the eyelashes. Dr. Harceaga offers an “Asian eyelid” blepharoplasty procedure that helps create a natural looking crease on the upper eyelid, creating an improved shape. This surgery is also called double eyelid surgery.
It’s important to note that there is a difference between Asian and Caucasian eyelids, both in size and in shape. The Caucasian lid crease is about 20% larger than an Asian eyelid crease, and also tapers closer to the eyelashes as the fold goes outward. Dr. Harceaga’s goal with Asian eyelid surgery is not to give a westernised appearance to an Asian face; but rather, to create a crease that looks completely natural.
The most common method of creating the crease is known as the double sutures and twisting method, or DST. The DST procedure involves creating a fold by pinching together the underside of the eyelid skin and stitching it in place. The doctor may also trim the web of skin that overlaps the corner of the eye. This skin is more prominent in patients of Asian descent.
Dr. Harceaga will determine the best type of surgical procedure for your Asian eyelid surgery at the time of your consultation.
There are various reasons for having eyelid surgery, and Dr. Harceaga has extensive experience creating revitalised and rejuvenated upper and lower eyelids for patients. The reasons for wanting blepharoplasty include:
Eyelid surgery with Dr. Harceaga will leave you with a more youthful appearance. It’s a common procedure for both Asian people, as well as patients age 30 and older, used to repair the effects of aging skin. As we get older, the skin loses it’s elasticity, and when you add in the effects of gravity, excessive skin begins collecting in the upper eyelids, which causes drooping eyelids. For lower eyelids, age causes loosening of the skin and the underlying muscle.
Good candidates for eyelid surgery are adult men and women who have healthy facial tissue and muscles. In addition, candidates for this procedure should have realistic goals as to what the surgery can accomplish.
Candidates for eyelid surgery include healthy patients who have:
In addition, you should:
Some patients have a forehead, or eyebrow lift, at the same time as eyelid surgery. The eyebrow lift helps to minimise the creases that occur across the forehead, or those that appear high on the bridge of the nose. It also helps to reposition low or sagging eyebrows.
Unlike eyelid surgery alone, the brow lift offers the patient a more youthful appearance of the eyebrows, along with a more rested appearance of the upper face and eye area. There are several types of eyebrow lifts procedures available, including:
Most patients recover within two weeks, and it may take several weeks to see the final results of an eyebrow lift. Dr. Harceaga will discuss the procedure with you, and determine if you’re a candidate to have this surgery along with eyelid surgery.
The best way to determine if a blepharoplasty (and any complementary procedures) is right for you is to have an initial consultation with Dr. Harceaga. You will have an opportunity to discuss your goals and expectations about the surgery with the doctor, and ask any relevant questions that you may have.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Harceaga will:
The most suitable form of blepharoplasty will depend on where stretched skin and excess fatty deposits are located around the eyes. As an expert in facial anatomy, Dr. Harceaga will determine the best approach during your consultation.

I had neck/jaw Lipo on Friday evening 16/10/15 after wanting it done since I was 16 as I have never had a jaw line or definition in my neck as always had a slope.The team have been absolutely fantastic. First of all arranging it on a Friday evening so I could have longer to recover over the weekend so I can go back to work on Monday. The communication from everyone has been fantastic. The procedure was great (If you can say great about a tube sucking out fat from your neck!). But seriously made me feel such at ease, comfortable and felt in such safe hands. The surgeon was so meticulous and careful which was great as the neck and jaw are visible to all. I was given a number of one of the surgeons whom I could contact if I had any queries or problems and also Michelle's contact details. This I must say has been extremely helpful. Seriously would not get that kind of patient care and attention anywhere I know and from anywhere I know of people have gone to. Great price, great customer care and attention and great professional and qualified team. Thank you to you all, it really means so much to me, its a massive life changer for me and I have all of you to thank for that! :)
