Excess Eyelid Skin Removal
Droopy and excess skin on your eyelids can impair your vision and make you appear tired and older. This change in the skin around your eyes occurs slowly, so you may not even realize it is happening right away. Then, one day you see a picture of yourself and your eyes seem smaller, and you look older and tired. It may seem like your eyes changed overnight. You can reverse this change and make your eyes look wider and more youthful again with excess eyelid skin removal from Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC.
The skin around your eyes is thinner and more delicate than other areas. As time goes by, collagen and elastin wane in your skin, reducing its ability to repair and recover. The skin on your eyelids can begin to lose its elasticity, stretching and sagging. This excess skin pushes down on your upper eyelid and can create bags under your lower lid, creating an older, tired appearance to your eyes.
At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, we offer excess eyelid skin removal and treatment for sagging eyelids. This intricate procedure can have a dramatic impact on your overall appearance. Your eyes are the most noticeable feature on your face; when they look tired or old, you look tired and old. Removing the excess skin and lifting the eyelid can takes years off your appearance and make you look energetic again. Our experienced facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Benjamin Stong, can masterfully revive your eyelids to give you a rejuvenated appearance that looks like your natural, younger self.
Treatment for Sagging Eyelids
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can carefully reshape the eyelids or remove excess skin. While some of our patients need a complete eyelid lift along with excess skin removal, others only need a small amount of skin altered to give them a younger appearance. Dr. Stong can evaluate the skin around your eyes and determine the best procedure to give you the look you desire.
If the excess or sagging skin is on your upper eyelids, a tiny incision is made along the crease of the upper lid to remove excess skin and fat, if needed. The incision is well hidden in the crease and unnoticeable when it heals. Dr. Stong has a talent for creating a natural appearance that will not look pulled or tight around your eyes. He strives only to make you look more like your younger self.
Bags or sagging under the eye can be transformed with a lower eyelid blepharoplasty. The incision can be hidden under the lower lashes and skin can be removed and lifted to reduce the bags and sagging under the eye. Some patients will have both an upper and lower eyelid lift or skin removal, while some only need one or the other performed.
If you only have a slight sagging under the eyes and are not ready to consider plastic surgery, we have other treatments available for sagging eyelids. Our K-Spa, the on-site med spa, offers dermal fillers and skin tightening treatments that can address sagging skin around the eyes. Dr. Stong can discuss all the options available based on your situation and recommend the best solution to give you the results you desire.
When considering alterations to the eyes, you want to know you have a facial plastic surgeon you can trust for your procedure. Dr. Stong is a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon who is highly accredited and respected in his field. His eye for detail and artistry when performing surgical and nonsurgical procedures allows him to create beautiful, natural-appearing results for our patients.
