Do you believe your eyes make you look tired, sad or older than you feel? Consider eyelid surgery to reduce fat, minimize bags under your eyes and tighten your eyelid skin. The result is a fresher, more rested appearance.
Typically, an upper eyelid incision follows the natural contour of the upper eyelid and is camouflaged in the natural crease when healed. Lower eyelid incisions are hidden below the lower lashes or within the lid, depending on the amount of lower lid skin present. In some patients, underlying muscle may need to be tightened, fat pads reduced, or the lower lid skin simply tightened with laser resurfacing. Unless requested, ethnic characteristics of a patient’s eyes are not changed. Most patients can return to work in 10-14 days when swelling and bruising has subsided.
