Aging, sun exposure, heredity and the natural pull of gravity can all affect the face. When excess skin and fat show in the eyelid, your eyes can appear droopy and affect your vision. Through a surgical outpatient procedure called a blepharoplasty, we can remove excess skin and puffiness on the lids, restore your vision and help you get back to looking your very best.
New lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet can be frustrating signs of aging. From sun exposure to heredity to simply frowning or squinting, sometimes the muscles in our eyes become overworked. Botox is a safe, nonsurgical injection that blocks the impulses from the nerve to the facial muscle, and helps the skin appear smoother and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Aging, sun exposure, heredity and the natural pull of gravity can all affect the face, and often the brow and forehead are affected first. The skin loses its elasticity and muscle support, resulting in winkles and increased heaviness around your eyes and brows. A brow lift returns the brows to a more elevated position, softens facial lines and improves the appearance of both the forehead and brow.
Blepharoptosis is often caused by a loosening of the tendon-like structure that lifts the eyelids, or by congenital malformation, trauma, muscular or neurologic disease. You’re your eyelids droop, they can change your appearance, cause headaches or reduce your field of vision. Through outpatient repair, we adjust the structure that lifts the eyelids, improve your vision and help you look like yourself again.
Malposition ranges from drooping to the inward (Ectropion ) or outward (Entropion ) turning of the eyelid. It’s often a result of aging, trauma, or eyelid lesions and can cause severe irritation, burning, tearing, and decreased vision. There are two main types of eyelid malposition – these are called ectropion and entropion.
Sun exposure, heredity, and fair complexion can all cause for skin cancer, even on your eyelids.
