The cosmetic condition of your eyes can reveal much about your true age. As we get older, fat deposits and excess skin can develop along the upper and lower eyelids, giving the eyes a droopy, puffy, or wrinkled appearance. Patients who come to The Plastic Surgery Center seeking a solution for these cosmetic concerns often say that their eyes make them appear tired, sad, and angry even when they are feeling content and refreshed.
To help men and women recapture the youthful shape, energy, and brightness of their eyes, Dr. Jeffrey Scott performs upper and lower eyelid lifts (also called blepharoplasty). In each of these procedures (which can be performed simultaneously if desired) excess skin and fat deposits are removed using well hidden incisions that can be virtually undetectable after healing. Results of eyelid lift are often quite remarkable:
- Eyelids appear smoother and conform more closely to the underlying structural contours of the face.
- Eyes open wider and appear more rested.
- Wrinkles and creases around the eyes are reduced.
- Youthful definition returns to the eye area.
If a drooping brow line is contributing to hooding of the upper eyelids, Dr. Scott may suggest combining an eyelid lift with a brow lift procedure to achieve the greatest degree of enhancement. In other instances, it may be appropriate to suggest injection of dermal fillers to add volume to hollowed areas around the eyes. During your initial consultation, Dr. Scott will perform a comprehensive facial evaluation and discuss which treatment or combination of treatments may be ideal for achieving the more youthful appearance you desire.
