Atlanta Eyelid Surgery
It is no secret. Our skin starts to sag and loses its firmness as we get older--especially our eyes. This is primarily because the eyelids are the thinnest skin on the entire body. On the upper eyelid, this redundant skin is known as dermatocholasis. Additionally, the fat from around the eye bulges with age, particularly in the lower eyelid. One way to reverse these signs of aging is with Oculoplastic Surgery or Eyelid Surgery of either the upper or lower eyelid, or both. Oculoplastic Surgery or Eyelid Surgery is one of the most popular reconstructive procedures because it rejuvenates the eye which is an area that draws significant attention during first impressions. Dr. Stong is an experienced eyelid surgeon and a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon.
Eyelid Reconstruction Atlanta GA
Eyelid surgery is not only performed on people who desire to improve their facial appearance, but also patients who suffer from skin cancer as well as other types of trauma to the eyelid including bad outcomes from previous eyelid surgery requiring reconstruction.
In addition, individuals who suffer from eyelids that have an irregular shape or contour, such as bedroom eyes (upper eyelid ptosis) and excessively loose lower eyelids (ectropion) are candidates for eyelid surgery in order to revitalize their appearance and restore function. Common symptoms accompanying many of the described conditions include: excessive tearing (epiphora), obstructed vision, and dry eye. In addition to Blepharoplasty, the following are the three most commom occuloplastic reconstructive procedures performed in our facial plastic surgery practice:
• Eyelid Reconstruction
• Ptosis repair
• Ectropion Repair
