When there is excess skin on the eyelids, it can change your appearance. Excess skin can be a genetic trait or due to lost elasticity from aging. Both the upper and lower eyelids can have excess skin, drooping to make the eyes look sad or tired. At Be That Beautiful™ Plastic Surgery, we perform excess eyelid skin removal surgery at our facility in Los Angeles, CA.
Excess skin on the upper or lower eyelid is called dermatochalasis. Some people are born with this condition, but it is more commonly caused by skin laxity from aging. Loose skin on the eyelids gives the appearance of sleepy, tired eyes. In severe cases, excess skin on the upper eyelid can hang down and obscure vision. The best solution for dermatochalasis is blepharoplasty or excess eyelid skin removal surgery.
Baggy eyes caused by dermatochalasis can be corrected with plastic surgery. Dr. Obaid Chaudhry is a talented and experienced plastic surgeon who can rejuvenate the eyes of patients with excess eyelid skin. Dr. “OC” can perform an upper blepharoplasty procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the eyelid. The incision is made along the crease to hide the scar. For the lower eyelid, excess skin or fat can be removed with an incision inside the eyelid or along the eyelash line.
Removing excess eyelid skin can have a dramatic effect on the eye and face appearance. Once the loose skin is gone, the eyes look more awake and youthful. For dermatochalasis caused by aging, a brow lift may be appropriate to rejuvenate the brow and restore a youthful arch to the eyebrows along with blepharoplasty. Both procedures can be completed at the same time, refreshing the appearance of the upper face.
If dermatochalasis is making you look older or fatigued, excess eyelid skin removal surgery may be the solution.
