Upper And Lower Eyelid Surgery To Restore Younger-Looking Eyes!

POSTED ON MONDAY, FEBRUARY 06, 2017 AT 10:12 AM  by Dr. Roger Bassin

Are you bothered by drooping upper eyelids or under-eye bags? These conditions are common indicators of facial aging and may also be accelerated by environmental factors, including sun exposure. As your skin begins to lose firmness and elasticity over time, tissues begin to sag. Many patients feel that this makes them look tired or older than their age. At Bassin Center For Plastic Surgery, we offer long-lasting surgical solutions to restore the appearance of younger-looking eyes! Upper eyelid surgery can remove and tighten excess skin contributing to sagging eyelids, while lower eyelid surgery is designed to remove and reposition lax skin under the eyes to improve bulging. Also known as upper and lower blepharoplasty, these two techniques can restore the natural contours of your eyelids.

Upper Blepharoplasty

Upper eyelid surgery targets hanging skin above the eyelids. Your eyelid surgeon can remove excess skin to eliminate drooping, while also redraping any loose skin to achieve a firmer look across each eyelid. Upper blepharoplasty can accentuate the eyes and, in some cases, improve vision by removing sagging skin hanging over the eyelashes.

Lower Blepharoplasty

Lower eyelid surgery can treat under-eye bags and hollows. Your blepharoplasty surgeon can remove excess skin underneath the eye, if necessary. Some patients may only require the repositioning of loose skin and fat pads under the eyes that contribute to bulging and dark circles. The result is a tighter, firmer-looking lower eyelid.

Can I Combine Upper And Lower Eyelid Surgery?

Absolutely! Upper and lower blepharoplasty can be performed separately or in one, comprehensive procedure, depending on your treatment goals.
