Maintaining a well-rested and youthful look can be a challenge when you develop bags around the eyes or have loose, droopy skin around the eyelids. You may be genetically predisposed to having loose skin around the eyelids or progressing through the aging process so the signs of aging are more noticeable around the eyes.
Whatever the case may be, people with excess tissue around the eyes can transform their look with eyelid surgery. Otherwise known as blepharoplasty, this procedure involves removing excess tissue and tightening the skin to create a tighter, rejuvenated appearance.
Dr. Foley has extensive experience performing eyelid surgery and may recommend upper or lower eyelid surgery as part of your treatment plan. This procedure alone can take years off your appearance and give you a refreshed appearance. Results are permanent but can be enhanced further with minimally invasive treatments such as injectable fillers and skin tightening procedures.
Reasons to Undergo Eyelid Surgery
Many patients turn to Dr. Foley to undergo eyelid surgery for the following reasons:
- Excess skin hanging over the natural fold of the upper lids
- Loose skin hanging from upper lids and interfering with vision
- Puffiness around upper or lower lids that creates a tired or aging appearance
- Deep grooves and lines around the delicate eye area
- Small or crepey eyelid skin surface which makes makeup application difficult
- Bags and dark circles around the eyes
Types of Eyelid Surgery Procedures
Dr. Foley is board certified plastic surgeon and performs both upper eyelid surgery and lower eyelid surgery. Both procedures are typically performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Incision lines are made within the natural crease of the upper eyelid or on the inside of the lower lid so they are easy to hide. These incisions allow for easy access to the excess skin and fat around the delicate eye area.
Dr. Foley will use special techniques to remove excess tissue and may use laser resurfacing to tighten excess skin around the eye area. In some cases, soft tissue fillers can be injected into the tear trough or around the eyes to rejuvenate the under-eye area.
