Treatment for Puffy Eyes
As you age, one of the first places you can see the signs is around your eyes. The delicate skin and fat composition in this area changes, often making your eyes look puffy or droopy. Sagging or puffy eyes are often caused by a loss of fat under the skin in the brow and upper eyelid area, causing a hollow, drooping appearance. At Kalo Facial Plastic Surgery, we can help you reduce the appearance of puffiness or drooping in your eye area to make you look years younger.
Droopy Eyes or Sagging Eyelids
Fat loss in the face is one of the main causes of aging. As the fat dissipates or moves, the soft, firm face you had when you were young changes. In the upper eyelid and brow, this can cause a hooded, droopy eye. Without the fat to fill the skin, there are excess folds that sag down, making you look older and tired. Treatments can include injectable fillers to quickly rejuvenate the area and surgical options to lift the eyelid skin for a youthful, energetic appearance.
For those with only a slight sagging or puffiness around the eye, injectable fillers can be the best option. We have several different options available, each with its own benefits. Dr. Stong can discuss which option would be best for your circumstances. He also may suggest our Liquid Eyelift, which can give your eyes a makeover without surgery.
If there is too much excess skin to fill with an injectable filler, blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery may be your best option. An upper eyelid lift removes this excess skin and tightens the eye and brow area. This can give you a refreshed, younger appearance.
Droopy, puffy eyes can make you look exhausted and older than you want to appear. Contact us today to schedule your consultation at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery to learn more about our treatments to rejuvenate your sagging eyelids.
