Feeling Great

This is a 72 year old man before and after elevating his drooped upper eyelids with a Putterman procedure.  He also had cosmetic plastic surgery of his upper and lower eyelids. 



I am a 72 year old man who had drooping upper eyelids and serious bags beneath both eyes. I looked much older than I felt. Dr. Putterman performed my corrective surgery October 30, 2020 . Today is Thanksgiving Day and I look terrific! My wife says I look at least 20 years younger and I could not agree more. I thank Dr. Putterman and his wonderful staff for making all the improvements needed to make me look good and feel even better. Their talents and kindness made this entire experience extremely rewarding for me.

Aesthetic Surgery Journal Publication

Dr. Allen Putterman wrote a commentary in the August issue of The Aesthetic Surgery Journal.  It was on the surgical correction of upper eyelid ectropion presenting with dry eye symptoms.  He presented how to treat upper eyelid ectropion secondary to floppy eyelid syndrome which occurs in obese patients with sleep apnea.  The upper eyelid flips over in sleep and causes irritation and further elongation and laxity of the lid.  Removing a full thickness section of the upper eyelid shortens and tightens the lid, and corrects the ectropion and eye irritation.
