As we age, our skin loses elasticity, and we start to experience sagging skin. Blepharoplasty is the procedure that cuts away excess fat and skin from the eyelid to prevent them from drooping. Not only do sagging eyelids give off an older appearance, but they can also interfere with your peripheral vision.
What you need to know
The eyelids are complex structures that require care and precision. Their function and appearance result from the critical interplay of antagonistic muscles, ligaments, microscopic tendons, cartilage support, the eye globe itself, many discreet fat pockets, the surrounding bony orbit, and a complex drainage system.
I evaluate every structure in a comprehensive consultation to accurately determine which structures need to be removed, augmented or even resided in alternate positions.
This evaluation seamlessly culminates in an operation suited to your specific needs. It provides some of the most striking results in cosmetic surgery by what appears as a fresher look, with your eyes unencumbered by heavy skin folds.
