Eyelid Surgeries

The eyes are the "windows of the soul," and one of the first places that we see aging. Some patients develop bags and loose skin on their eyelids as they age. Other patients have lower eyebrows and drooping upper eyelids due to weakness, or separation of the upper eyelid lifting muscle associated with age. These changes often lead to a tired, or even grumpy appearance, no matter much you work to be well-rested and rejuvenated. Dr. White’s approach to eyelid lift surgery is to address both functional and cosmetic components to achieve a natural, balanced, and refreshed look.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a good candidate for an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty)?

How is the eyelid surgery performed?

Upper Eyelid Surgery

Upper eyelid surgery is performed via an external incision that removes excess skin. This scar heals very well and tends to blend as if it were a thin lid crease. A small amount of skin is often removed simultaneously in areas that are bulging, while leaving enough fat behind to prevent a hollowed out appearance. If the eyelid lifting muscle is elongated to the point of blocking vision, Dr. White can shorten the muscle and restore functionality to the eyelid.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

Lower eyelid surgery can be performed via an external incision to remove a small amount of excess skin or fat. The scar will be well-hidden beneath the eyelashes. If the patient does not have much excess skin and the problem involves primarily fat deposits around the eyes, surgery can be performed to hide the surgery site behind the eyelid. This minimally invasive method results in a scar-free surgery.
