The aesthetics of the gaze: a multi-faceted subject: Dr. Escalas

Surgeon: Dr. Pierre Escalas

Sourdille-Atlantique Ophthalmological Institute Nantes / Saint Herblain

The alteration of the look with age is the result of several transformations that concern:

- the position of the free edge of the eyelid that may droop (ptosis)

- the amount of skin that increases by sagging (dermatochalazis)

- the position of the eyebrows that can go down (ptosis of the eyebrows)

- changes in fat volume, which can increase (pockets) or decrease (dark circles)

Most of the time, these elements are combined in variable proportions, which should lead to a surgical procedure adapted and specific to each patient.

This film will show you examples of these modifications to help you analyze your gaze and understand the surgical or medical gestures that can be proposed to you. There are indeed many different ways to perform cosmetic eyelid surgery $


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.
