The excess skin on her upper eyelids was so heavy that it was pushing her lids down to cover her pupils.  Note that in the after picture, we can see much more of the iris, the colored part of the eye.

Also, in the before picture we can't see any of the crease that normally resides about one-fourth of an inch above the eyelashes.  That crease provides a perfect place to hide the incision for this operation.

Questioner: My plastic surgeon doesn't use drain tubes after Neck Lift/Facelift. Is that okay?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Drains after facelift
Deb,

This is a question that cosmetic surgeons discuss regularly and you will find many different opinions. Most feel drains do help minimize seromas (fluid collections under the skin) and improve the recovery process. Some surgeons use fibrin sealants which also work well. Others just depend on dressings and pressure.  In general, however, if your surgeon is experienced with facelifts and getting excellent results, then whether or not they use drains should not be an issue.

Best of luck with your procedure-
