The eyes are the window to the soul and the effects of aging become apparent in the eyes sooner than in other areas of the face. An eyelid lift (or blepharoplasty), is the preferred treatment for reducing bags under the eyes or drooping upper eyelid skin, conditions that can add years to your appearance and even impair your vision. The incisions are made in the natural creases and are barely visible. The lower eyelid can become puffy or aged for a variety of reasons. Seek a consult for your individualized repair – fat removal or fat transfer for the lower eyelid. Lower eyelid surgery can also help contour the deep groove between your eye and cheek. Dr. Leake can perform a tranconjunctival blepharoplasty for the lower lids and no incisions will be made on the skin. Blepharoplasty alone is not always the answer to redundant skin around the eyes. Premature aging and drooping of the brow can cause a tired, angry look with frown lines and sagging skin. These can be corrected with the addition of a brow lift. Although there will be improvement in facial wrinkles with an eyelid lift, it will not address all the superficial lines that come from premature aging, overexposure to weather, and genetics. Skin resurfacing addresses textural wrinkles and imperfections. Nonsurgical options to improve your eyes include: BOTOX®, injectables, and skin care products.
