Your eyelids may contradict the youthful energy and temperament that a person has within. A simple procedure to correct this “tired look” may provide a considerable uplift in one’s spirit and outlook. It also has a favorable impact upon public perception. The excess skin of the upper eyelids are is removed and sometimes the position of the upper eyelid is elevated to make the eyes look more open and youthful.
Dr. Beckler also uses a non-external incision approach (known as transconjunctival) to sculpt and reduce excess fat of the lower eyelid. Some individuals need a small amount of skin removed from the lower lid. There is minimal scarring because the incision is placed in the fold of the eyelid. No single technique for eyelid surgery is ideal for everyone. A plastic surgery consultation with Dr. Beckler will help you decide on the most appropriate cosmetic procedure to bring back your beautiful, vibrant eyes.
Will this eyelid surgery procedure remove some of the dark circles and crow’s feet?
A blepharoplasty will not remove crow’s feet or dark circles from your face. Other non-surgical techniques such as laser and intense pulsed light treatment can be performed to treat these problems. Botox and dermal fillers may also be an option. Dr. Beckler can discuss the alternatives best suited to you.
What can correct the hollow look of my eyes?
The hollowness is a result of loss of volume. This can be addressed by restoring cheek volume.. If you look at the eyes of people as they age you will note that the lower eyelid lengthens. This is due to the cheek pad that has descended and “pulled’ the eyelid down. In most patients eyelid surgery and volume replacement will alleviate this but some would be best served by a “midface lift”. Some patients can also be treated with fillers but it depends on the severity of the problem.
