Upper Eye Surgery
Upper eye fullness gives the effect of a tired run down appearance. A cause of brow droop (ptosis), excess skin, excess fat or any combination of the three. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a common procedure that I perform in our surgical suite. Patients from all over the Tampa, Florida and surrounding areas travel to our office for an improvement of their upper and lower lids.
The upper eyelid skin, fat, and sometimes muscle is either removed or repositioned to achieve a natural appearance. My main objective is to achieve a firmer natural eye-lid with the appropriate amount of fat and skin to provide a more youthful appearance. Sometimes I may combine upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty with a forehead lift for maximal rejuvenation. Other times I may utilize laser resurfacing for skin tightening.
In an evaluation, I can discuss with you the variety of options available to you for improvement in eyelid and brow appearance.
Look at the photo gallery and closely look at my facial surgery patients. I am confident that you will see I have modified a variety of techniques to help achieve a natural appearance. I am proud to say that I take great effort to get these results so that you do not have that “deer in the headlights” look.
Lower Eye Surgery
Lower lid surgery (blepharoplasty) is often combined with upper lid blepharoplasty to get optimal results. Many times the lower lids sag and bulge adding to the tired or sad look patients complain about when coming for evaluation. The lower lid skin, fat, and sometimes muscle needs to be excised or repositioned to enhance the lower lids without giving a sunken or hollowed out appearance.
One of the areas of the face that I take great enjoyment in rejuvenating. There are countless methods for rejuvenating the lower lids. In optimizing the outcome for you, I take into account your facial structures and in particular eyelid anatomy. In fact, nearly 75% of my facial evaluation goes into examining your eyelid and brow region.
I believe it is this attention to detail that gives beautiful results with minimal chance of dry eyes and unnatural appearance. Once again, I am confident you will see that my Tampa area patients have a natural appearance after upper and lower lid blepharoplasty in the photo gallery.
