For people concerned about looking old before their time, the eyes are commonly an area of considerable focus. Our eyes are often the first thing other people see when they look at us, so tired looking eyes can lead to a tired looking appearance overall. Since this is such a common aesthetic concern for men and women, it makes sense that eyelid surgery is so consistently popular among both female and male plastic surgery patients. To better educate my patients about this procedure, I wanted to discuss the eyelid surgery procedure options that I perform.

Eyelid surgery can be performed in different ways depending on the specific needs of each patient. My first step is gauging the patient’s hairline, forehead, eyebrow positioning, and upper and lower eyelids to determine the most appropriate treatment option to help provide the results that the patient hopes to achieve. I can perform eyelid surgery, removing excess skin and fat deposits, from either the upper and/or lower eyelids. In some cases, combining a brow lift and eyelid surgery can help provide even more comprehensive results.

In the video below, I take time to discuss how I perform eyelid surgery and the benefits this procedure can help patients rejuvenate their face:

No matter how it’s performed, eyelid surgery can provide truly outstanding and long-lasting aesthetic results for anyone interested in looking younger. The first step towards younger looking eyes is consulting with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon to begin planning your procedure.
