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. Contact Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery today for a consultation to learn more about excess eyelid skin removal and other eyelid treatments to improve the beauty and youthfulness of your eyes.

Dr Stong is the ONLY Plastic Surgeon you should see, if you want the look that you have always dreamed of. I came to Dr Stong highly dissatisfied from a previous Rhinoplasty, and I was in need of a revision surgery to enhance my facial structure. From the first day I met Dr Stong he LISTENED to what I wanted and helped to design the perfect nose for me. His kind clinical team walked me through every step leading up to my surgery. The surgery and recovery went easy and I was back to my normal activities after a few weeks. It has only been a few months but I look and feel amazing. I get compliments all the time!!!! People stop me on the street to comment on how wonderful I look, and I am not ashamed to say that it's all because of Dr Stong. Dr stong didn't just enhance my looks-he changed my LIFE. Please call his office for an appointment today. You won't regret it!

I was very nervous at the thought of rhinoplasty. So nervous that it took me over 20 years to finally go through with it. When I finally decided to undergo the procedure I wanted the best doctor for this job. I am so glad I found Dr. Stong. His specialty is facial surgery and Dr.Stong is up to date on the latest surgery techniques. He and his staff are kind and genuinely concerned. My calls are always answered by one of his staff and Dr. Stong is seeing me regularly for months to come to ensure that I am healing as expected. My nose looks very natural and I couldn't be happier with the results. I would highly recommend Dr. Stong to anyone that is considering facial surgery.

I went today to get non-surgical rhinoplasty. Dr. stong did a great job. I also had a consultation about a surgical rhinoplasty, he showed me how it would look like the before and after and I plan on getting it done by him when the juvederm in my nose is gone completely. The moment you walk in everyone is very nice and welcoming. I've been to other places for lip injections but I think Kalos is going to be my go to from now on.

Dr. Stong delivered exactly what I was looking for with my blepharoplasty. The results were suttle yet significant. People no longer ask me if I'm tired. Mission accomplished.

I was really nervous even considering cosmetic surgery, but it had been becoming increasingly obvious that my youthful glow had dimmed. All the typical bad decisions we make in our youth, sunbathing without sunscreen and years of smoking had taken its toll. I was lucky to find Dr. Stong. He was referred to me by my Dermatopathologist Dr. Dirk Robertson. Dr Stong is a no nonsense type physician who gave me so much of his time from my first visit to my last. On March 16th I had a facelift and upper blepharoplasty. I love it! I’m still healing but the changes so far have been amazing. Dr. Stong was very clear and honest on what to expect in every phase of my surgery. Love his staff, they were super friendly, reassuring when I was nervous, and supportive throughout. Will return only to him for future procedures and will continue to recommend him to my friends and family.

I had been looking for a plastic surgeon to have a facelift and blepharoplasty. The office and staff were excellent! I am thrilled with the results. Dr. Stong is a kind and compassionate doctor and skilled surgeon. I would recommend him to any of my friends or family!

I met Dr Stong when I had to have my basal cell reconstruction on the tip of my nose. He and his caring staff were there every step of the way. I then decided to have a facelift and once again had a wonderful experience! He is well trained in both areas. I would definitely recommend him! Judith Hoffman
