Blepharoplasty, Eyelid Surgery
The delicate composition of skin, fat and muscle around the eyes can change over the years. Often, it is one of the first places on the face to show aging. Not only can excess skin cause wrinkles and lines, it can make the eyes appear tired or create the illusion of fatigue. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can transform the eye area and achieve a dramatic improvement in the overall appearance of the face.

So much is affected by the appearance of the eyes. Drooping skin on the upper or lower lids can make you appear tired, even when you feel youthful and energetic. Bags from puffiness under the eye or sagging tissue can also make you look exhausted as well as older. Blepharoplasty procedures address these issues and revive the eyes for an improved appearance. Our eyelid surgery patients get results that make them look years younger or well rested, without any noticeable scarring or a “fake” appearance.
Advanced Eye Lift Surgeries
The type of blepharoplasty required to achieve the results you desire depends on the issues affecting your eyes. Some people only have sagging skin on their upper lid that needs to be removed to wake up the appearance of their eyes. Dr. Stong can achieve this result with a tiny incision along the crease in the upper eyelid, removing excess skin to reduce a hooded look that can make the eyes look older or tired.
Lower eye lifts can address several different issues, with various options in this procedure. Younger patients that do not have sagging muscle or tissue may not need the deeper skin/muscle flap lower blepharoplasty that is popular among older patients. If only a small amount of skin needs to be removed, Dr. Stong can use his precise “skin pinch” technique to smooth under the eye. Puffy eyes on younger patients can be transformed with a transconjunctival blepharoplasty that removes fat through the inner lower lid without any external scars.
Aging issues around the eyes, especially the lower eyelid, may require more intricate surgery. Dr. Stong can use a small incision under the bottom lashes to remove the excess skin and muscle that creates deeper bags and a sunken appearance under the eyes. Elevating the skin and fat pads softens the eyes for a more youthful appearance; often an upper lid lift is combined with this procedure for a complete eye lift. In some cases, Dr. Stong may transplant fat from under the lower lid to the corner of the eyes to create a smooth, natural transition from the cheek to the eye area.
When it comes to transforming your eyes, you want a surgeon that has vast experience and proven results to undertake this delicate surgery.
