Eyelid surgery eliminates the excess skin and fat from the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both. Our plastic surgeon at Nuance Cosmetic Surgery provides natural-looking results with meticulous techniques and an in-depth knowledge of facial beauty. Here are just a few reasons eyelid surgery might be right for you:
You Have Drooping Upper Lids
If you have drooping upper lids due to excess skin, you might be a good candidate for upper eyelid surgery. Occasionally, a small amount of excess fat and muscle is removed to further correct the hooding appearance. Our board-certified plastic surgeon at Nuance Cosmetic Surgery is known for creating natural-looking results by ensuring that some fat remains afterward. Furthermore, he is meticulous with the skin removal aspect of the surgery to preserve the normal functions of the eyelid.
You Have Extreme Hooding of the Upper Lids That Affects Your Vision
If the upper eyelid droops so much that it covers part of your pupil, and ultimately obstructs your vision, your eyelid surgery may be considered a necessary medical procedure.
You Have Under-Eye Bags
If your under-eye bags are caused by excess fat that is further aggravated by a hernia–i.e., the thin membrane that holds the fat weakens with advancing age and so it appears dangling from the lower lid–a lower eyelid surgery might be right for you. During your preoperative consultation that includes an in-depth physical and an eye exam, our plastic surgeon will determine the ideal technique based on your underlying anatomy and other factors.
You Want a Holistic Rejuvenated Appearance
It is not uncommon to combine eyelid surgery with a facelift, brow lift, or any other type of facial rejuvenation surgery. After all, aging affects the rest of the face at almost the same rate. Some patients, meanwhile, benefit more with skin rejuvenation treatments that are non-surgical in nature to further eliminate the fine lines around their eyes.
