Eyelid Lift in Danville
Do you wake up, even after a good night’s sleep, and find that the loose skin above your eyes or bags below your eyes make you look tired? Do you look tired but feel awake? If you answered “yes,” you are not alone. Eyelid (blepharoplasty) procedures are commonly performed to help restore a more energetic and youthful appearance around the eyes.
The upper eyelid procedure involves removing the excess skin in the shape of a crescent. Next, any excess or bulging fat is removed, typically from the areas next to the nose. Fine sutures are used to close the incision. The scar blends into the fold above the eye and is very difficult to see.
The lower lid procedure involves making an incision behind the eyelid or just below the eyelashes. Next, the fatty tissue is either removed or redistributed according to patient needs. The muscle overlying the lower lid is then redraped and tightened. Any excess skin of the lower lid is then carefully removed if necessary, and the incisions are closed so that the scar will be hidden. The overall effect includes the disappearance of lower-lid bags, smoothing of the lid-cheek junction, and a more youthful contour.
Other procedures are frequently combined with eyelid surgery to enhance results. The most commonly associated procedures are browlifts and facelifts.
