The skin around the eyes is thinner and more delicate than other areas of the face. As you get older, the eyelid skin loses elasticity and becomes even more thin. Loose skin on the upper and lower eyelids is common with age, forming lines, wrinkles and bags under the eyes. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, can restore more youthful-appearing eyes. Dr. Chaudhry at Be That Beautiful™ Plastic Surgery offers upper and lower blepharoplasty at our clinic in Beverly Hills, CA.
Upper Eyelid Lift
The upper eyelids can lose their firmness with age. The skin often becomes thinner and looser, sagging and drooping on the eyelid. The loose upper eyelid skin can make the eyes look heavy and tired, even drooping into the line of vision for some patients.
An upper blepharoplasty is used to remove excess skin, tightening and firming the upper eyelid. The incision can be placed on the eyelid crease to discreetly hide the scar. An upper eyelid lift can refresh the eyes, removing the hooded appearance. This procedure is often paired with a lower blepharoplasty, or brow lift, to rejuvenate the eyes and brow.
Lower Eyelid Lift
The under-eye area also has thin skin that can stretch and sag with age. Permanent eye bags can make the face look older and constantly tired. The solution is lower blepharoplasty, which can remove the excess skin and fat under the eyes, tightening the lower eyelid.
Lower blepharoplasty can be performed through an incision inside the lower eyelid or along the lash line. Excess skin and fat are removed and the under-eye area is reshaped for a smoother, more youthful appearance. A lower eyelid lift surgery can remove eye bags, lines and wrinkles to rejuvenate the eyes and face.
If you have loose skin on your upper or lower eyelids, it can create a tired and aged appearance. Blepharoplasty can restore firmer eyelids for a more youthful and energetic look. Dr. Chaudhry at Be That Beautiful™ Plastic Surgery can refresh your eyes with an upper or lower eyelid lift. Contact our clinic in Los Angeles to schedule a blepharoplasty consultation today.
