Choosing Us for Eyelid Surgery

Aging is a normal part of life, and it can affect your eyes in numerous ways. Aging can also affect the skin around your eyes, including your eyelids and eyebrows. Concerns like drooping, bagginess, skin folds, and excess skin can affect your vision, comfort, and your confidence.

Eyelid surgery can help alleviate some of that stress and concern. Learn more about how to achieve your vision goals and regain your confidence by booking an eye bag removal surgery appointment with our team today.

Opting for Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery can improve your sight and manage cosmetic concerns related to aging you may have. 

As you age, the skin and muscles around your eye can stretch out and weaken. As a result of this, your skin and muscles can sag, droop, protrude, or retract. This process can lead to eyelid problems that can impair your vision and cause general eye discomfort. 

Our experienced team can help with these problems and provide you with better sight, a more youthful appearance, and overall comfort with your eyes.

Issues Associated with Your Eyelids

When considering eyelid surgery, it’s essential to determine what issue you are experiencing and what surgical solution is right for you.

Learning about some of the most common eyelid and eyebrow issues is a great first step.

Dermatochalasis is the excess skin located around the upper and lower areas of the eyelid. Eyelid skin is delicate and thin and, over time, can lose elasticity. Dermatochalasis can make your eyelids appear baggy and tired.

Treatment options for dermatochalasis include:

  • Upper blepharoplasty (eye lift): A small incision is made in your eyelid crease to remove redundant skin, muscle, and fat and then closed up.
  • Lower blepharoplasty (eye bag removal): A small incision is made below your eyelashes to remove loose skin and fat, reposition fat, and then closed.

Ptosis occurs when one or both of your upper eyelids begin to droop. The droopy eyelids may be barely noticeable, but in some cases, the upper eyelid can cover the entire pupil and interfere with your vision.

Ptosis usually affects older adults as a result of the aging process.

Treatment for ptosis can require surgery and a procedure called blepharoplasty that tightens the levator muscles and sometimes removes extra skin, fat, and tissue in the eyelid.

Blepharitis occurs when your eyelid becomes inflamed and causes red, swollen eyelids with crusty eyelashes. Blepharitis is very common, and between 37% and 47% of patients struggle with eyelid inflammation.

Some blepharitis treatment options include:

  • Eyelid scrubs
  • Medicated eye drops or ointments
  • In-office procedures
