Dr. Yee: No Two Eyelids Are the Same
- Posted on: Jul 29 2022
Do your eyelids feel heavy and overworked? As we age, our eyelids can appear saggier than we once remember them to be. Many times, clients come into Azul believing that their eyes appear aged and no longer feel like themselves. With advancements in surgical techniques, Azul can rectify any eyelid concerns with Blepharoplasty.
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that reshapes the skin from the upper or lower eyelids to give the tissue a more youthful appearance. For this procedure, one size does not fit all. An evaluation of the shape and dimension of your eyelids will help determine what is right for you. Patients who elect to have eyelid surgery often are looking to correct baggy eyelids, puffiness under the eye, loose upper lids, hollowness under the eyes, or sagging upper lids. Since drooping lids can impair vision, insurance often covers this procedure.
With over 15 years of experience in both surgical and non-surgical rejuvenation, Azul’s Doctor, Allison Yee, has perfected the eyelid lift. Performing more than 15,000 upper and 2,000 lower eyelid surgeries, she is recognized as one of the top aesthetic physicians in Southwest Florida and a leader in both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments for the Asian community.
When Doctor Yee evaluates a patient for eyelid surgery, she looks to create balance and harmony. Each face is unique and features such as eye and face shape are considered critical parts of the surgical approach. Eyelid surgery is all about precision and customization because no two eyelids are the same. In fact, two eyelids on the same face can be significantly different. For that reason, perfecting a harmonious, balanced and beautiful surgical outcome requires attention to detail.
Dr. Yee has spent years perfecting the balance and function of the Asian facial aesthetic, especially the eyelids, which are very nuanced and complex. Successful surgery and a happy patient are achieved through a fusion of specialized and experienced surgical techniques, natural beauty, and proper function, while also achieving aesthetic goals.
As a fourth-generation ophthalmic surgeon, Dr. Yee realized her passion at Indiana University. With an undergraduate degree in Fine Arts and Art History, she graduated with Summa Cum Laude honors. After her residency, Dr. Yee completed a two-year fellowship in oculofacial plastic surgery where she perfected her skills in facial reconstruction using the latest techniques for surgical facial rejuvenation. Her integration of surgery and the arts has led to a perfect blend of function and beauty.
