Tired, Droopy Eyes

Your eyes are a central part of your face and often one of the first things others notice about you. As we age naturally, wrinkles and sagging skin form around the eyes, contributing to an overall droopy and tired appearance that makes people look older and angrier than they really are. Since the eyes are such a focal point, there’s no easy way to cover them up if you’re insecure about wrinkles or undereye bags.

Eyelid surgery provides an option for rejuvenating the eyes and eliminating a perpetually tired appearance. Many people dissatisfied with drooping eyelids and eye bags will turn to eyelid surgery to restore a lively, youthful look.

What Concerns Can Eyelid Surgery Address?

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, addresses signs of aging in the eye region that occur naturally over time. Some common concerns that eyelid surgery deals with include:

  • Drooping eyelids
  • Excess eyelid skin
  • Hooded eyes as a result of sagging eyelids
  • Wrinkles near the eyes
  • Stubborn fat bulges in the eyelids
  • Bags under the eyes

What Type of Eyelid Surgery Do I Need?

At Weston Cosmetic Surgery Center, various eyelid surgery options are offered, each tailored to address specific concerns. During a consultation, Dr. Messa will evaluate your eyes and listen to your concerns and goals before determining which type of eyelid surgery best suits you.

Upper Eyelid Surgery

If you’re experiencing sagging in your upper eyelids, you may be a good candidate for an upper eyelid lift. This technique removes excess saggy eyelid skin, repositions the fat deposits in the eyelids, and tightens the tissues. Upper eyelid surgery lifts the upper eyelids and can correct hooding caused by sagging eyelids.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

For people with sagging in the lower eyelids and puffy undereye bags, a lower eyelid lift may be a good fit. The lower eyelid lift allows Dr. Messa to remove excess fat, causing the appearance of eye bags, and reposition the remaining fat for a smooth surface. Excess skin on the lower eyelid is also removed to eliminate drooping.

Upper & Lower Eyelid Surgery

Patients with sagging upper and lower eyelids may benefit from combining upper and lower eyelid surgeries. This is a popular choice, as many people who experience sagging in the upper eyelids also have similar problems with the lower eyelids and vice versa.

Laser Eyelid Surgery

People who want to eliminate puffiness in the upper and lower eyelids may be able to get laser eyelid surgery. This technique uses lasers to reduce puffiness, resulting in a rejuvenated, lively appearance.

Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty

For those with stubborn fat pockets around the eyes creating unwanted bulges, a transconjunctival blepharoplasty may be beneficial. No skin is removed, and many patients like that no stitches are needed for this technique.
