Your eyes are a key part of the overall appearance of your face. Over time, the eyelids can begin to sag and wrinkle which can give your eyes an aged appearance. Thankfully, eyelid surgery offers a way to lift and smooth the upper eyelids and rejuvenate the appearance of your eyes. 

However, some individuals who have sagging upper eyelids may be apprehensive about undergoing eyelid surgery because they are worried that surgery will leave noticeable post-surgical marks on their eyelids that are more noticeable than their wrinkled eyelids. 

In order to provide results that look as natural as possible, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen J. Ronan makes the incisions for upper eyelids surgery along the natural creases at the top of the eyelid. Once the excess tissue has been removed and the remaining skin has been lifted and tightened, the incision will be sutured closed. Once the incision has fully healed, any post-surgical marks will be well-hidden within these natural creases. This means that once the eyelids have fully healed, anyone who looks into your eyes will not be able to tell that you have undergone upper eyelid surgery. 

If you are bothered by the aged and wrinkled appearance of your upper eyelids and are looking for a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon who can provide you with beautiful and natural-looking results, contact Blackhawk Plastic Surgery today to schedule a consultation. Dr. Ronan can go over what to expect during and after your eyelid surgery so that you are fully prepared for the process.
