Dr. Lee prefers to perform surgeries under local anesthetic since this procedure requires minimal sedation. The incision is made in the eyelids crease and is well-hidden. Many people mistakenly believe that the surgeon should remove as much skin during surgeries as possible. Removing too much skin will result in incomplete closure of the eyelids and increasing exposure and dryness of the eyes. Also, removing too much fat will result in a sunken and hollow look which is not aesthetically pleasing, especially as one ages. Commonly, in many cases, removing too little lids skin will result with very little visual change.
