Eyelids

Eyelids that sag and droop making you look older than you feel can be corrected with cosmetic eyelid surgery.

Eyes can say so much about a person. But if yours are saying you’re tired, sad or angry … even when you aren’t … consider eyelid surgery. Hereditary factors and signs of aging can greatly impact the appearance of our eyes, so that what they reflect is not really how we feel.

If you are bothered by upper eyelids that have excess, drooping skin, or by puffiness or bags, you should know that cosmetic eyelid surgery can correct the excess skin, tissue and fat that cause problems in both the upper and lower eyelids, revealing a more youthful and energetic appearance.

Cosmtic eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that can improve the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. It is used to treat loose or sagging skin tht create folds or hides the natural contour of the upper eyelid. It can remove excess skin that hangs down from the upper lids, sometimes impairing vision. It can alleviate excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the upper eyelids and as bags under the eyes. It also treats droopiness of the lower eyelids, excess skin and fine wrinkles.
