When you visit our office, our oral and maxillofacial surgeons will examine the areas around your eyes and discuss your cosmetic goals with you. Depending on your condition and your aesthetic goals, we may recommend upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery or both.
An upper eyelid surgery involves lifting the upper eyelid to remove excess skin, thus preventing drooping skin and impaired vision. Lower eyelid surgery works to remove a combination of fatty deposits and excess skin. Both procedures work to give your eyes a smoother and more youthful appearance. You may also find that the shape of your eyes has been improved and sharpened by your procedure.
