Eyelid festoons

Q:

Can you please tell me the best procedure for eyelid festoons? Thank you so much for your time.

A:

Eyelid festoons are caused by the attachment of the skin and deeper structures around the eye to the underlying bone and the descent and stretch of the tissues above this attachment. There have been many methods to eliminate these, but the only one that is reliably successful is a lower blepharoplasty that detaches the tissues from the bone and suspends them superiorly. Make sure you see someone with significant experience in eyelid rejuvenation as this is not an easy problem to correct.
