Eyes are usually the first feature that we notice about someone and since the skin is so thin in the eye area, it is often the first part of the face to age. As we get older the elasticity of our eyelids can become compromised, leading to the appearance of excess skin in the upper eyelid. This can make eyes look droopy and fatigued. In addition, the under eye area can appear puffy, have noticeable bags or it may appear wrinkled. Your eyes may look tired, even when they are not.
An eyelid lift, or Blepharoplasty, can give the eyes a definite lift. Ohio Plastic Surgery Specialists can perform several different types of upper and lower eyelid surgeries that will restore youthful, effervescent eyes. We tailor each surgery to the individual patient because some eyes may require removal of excess skin, muscle or fat and for others a lower lid procedure may be performed through an invisible incision inside the eyelid. Yet for some the inner eyelid fat pads may need to be repositioned to prevent a hollowed-out appearance. There is no one-sized-fits-all Blepharoplasty solution. Others may be well served by a non-surgical approach such as Botox or Laser Resurfacing.
