Our eyes are quite literally our window on the world. Our eyes are critical to communication and can make or break a first impression, reveal aging, or indicate your level of interest, without you ever having to say a word. However, as we age, the skin and fat around our eyes may tell a different story.
Eyelid Surgery Can Address Upper and Lower Lid Concerns
There are several issues that may arise around your eyes that could justify the need for eyelid surgery. One of these issues is a droopy upper lid with extra skin. The extra skin sometimes creates extra folds in the eyelid that forces the eyelid skin to rest on the eyelashes. If your upper eyelid is sagging, it will often make you appear far more tired, older, and less interested. In some cases, a droopy upper eyelid can even impede your vision and cause you functional problems .
The lower eyelid and surrounding areas can also be a concern. Wrinkles, loose skin, and excess fat can build up to make your under eye area appear aged, tired, and puffy. These changes over time can add years to your face, making you look much older than you should.
How is the Surgery Performed?
Eyelid surgery is a delicate and meticulous procedure. Dr. Dawli places all incisions in the creases of the eyelids so that they are as invisible as possible. During the procedure, and in keeping with your discussed goals and desires, Dr. Dawli will remove excess skin and fat, tighten the eyelid, and give your eyes a more youthful appearance.
