Excess Eyelid Skin Removal Surgery
The skin around the eyes is delicate, thin and susceptible to stretching and losing elasticity with aging. Years of squinting, blinking, rubbing and cosmetic application/removal can cause stress to the skin, resulting in loose, excess skin on the eyelids. Excess eyelid skin can impact both the upper and lower eyelids, creating lines, wrinkles, bags and drooping. At LM Medical NYC in Manhattan, we offer advanced options in excess eyelid skin removal surgery to restore energetic, youthful eyes.
Excess skin on the upper eyelid is a common issue. While genetics can be responsible for excess skin on the upper eyelid (dermatochalasis), the most common cause is aging. Excess or stretched skin can fold over the eyelid, making the eyes look smaller. In severe cases, the fold of extra skin can impact vision. An upper blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift, can remove excess skin and tighten the upper eyelid to create eyes that look wider, youthful and more energetic.
Excess or sagging skin on the lower eyelid can result in bags that make your eyes look older and tired. Once again, genetics or dermatochalasis can play a role in the formation of excess skin under the eye, but aging is also a key factor. A lower blepharoplasty can be used to remove excess skin and fat below the eyes to diminish bags. A small incision at the lash line or inside the lower lid can be used to access the excess skin for removal.
Excess eyelid skin removal surgery can refresh the appearance of the eyes. If you have excess skin on the upper or lower eyelids, blepharoplasty can make a dramatic difference.
