Cosmetic eyelid surgery : Correspondence between anatomy and expressiveness of the eyes

Speaker: Dr. Pierre Escalas

Institut Ophtalmologique Sourdille Atlantique Nantes / Saint Herblain

Webinar of the Practical Ophthalmology Workshops Paris 2019

The look is the result of a set of anatomical elements whose combination will produce the expressions that reveal our emotions and personality.

Eye surgery, whether it be reconstructive or as part of the treatment of ageing, must take into account all these parameters in order to restore the initial harmony. There is therefore no simple technique to apply but a set of gestures to be measured and adapted to each face.

This presentation describes the interaction between the gaze and the anatomy of the peri-ocular region


The videos have been created and produced with great care to be as relevant as possible. Many topics are controversial and the options presented are rational personal choices, the result of an experiment involving several thousand interventions. Other ways of doing things are possible, they may have been proposed to you, so do not hesitate to ask for the reasons for the choices that were made.

This site is only a guide and does not replace the explanations given in a consultation, which are essential for understanding the analysis of the characteristics of your face, which is unique.

In the same way, the examples presented allow you to understand the principles of eye surgery, but they are not necessarily transposable to your particular situation. It is therefore not possible to guarantee the results that you have seen on the different presentations.

By consulting this site, you accept these limits. If you do not, I ask you not to use it.
