surgeon drawing lines on a woman's faceSome of the more common concerns women and men express about their faces pertain to the appearance of their eyes. Most often, signs of aging manifest as wrinkles, loose skin, droopy upper lids, or undereye bags. The area around the eyes, called the periorbital area, may be the first to betray a person’s age. With the recent advances in rejuvenation techniques, patients may now choose from a variety of options to address each and all of their concerns.

Problem areas around the eyes and possible corrective treatments include the following:

  • Crows feet:
    • Skin wrinkles at the outer corners of the eyes, produced by muscle contraction during smiling or squinting
    • Botox is commonly used to diminish periorbital muscle activity and reduce wrinkles
  • Hanging upper eyelids:
    • Appears as hooding or excess overhanging skin, may produce loss of vision in upper gaze
    • Concomitant condition called “ptosis” must be evaluated and ruled out
    • Surgical intervention with upper eyelid lift (upper blepharoplasty), as well as possible brow lift to lift the eyebrows,  and ptosis correction
  • Tear trough prominence or deformity:
  • Lower eyelid bags:
  • Lower eyelid skin excess:

A comprehensive examination by and discussion with your plastic surgeon are essential before deciding which procedure or combination of treatments is best for you. Choose an experienced board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in eyelid rejuvenation options.
