As people get older, skin becomes looser and begins to sag. This can be particularly problematic around the eyes. Weaker, sagging skin can make you look tired, stressed, and old—and too much extra skin can actually interfere with vision.
Blepharoplasty is a simple, safe surgical procedure that can improve the appearance of your eyes, make you look younger, and make it easier for you to see. Dr. Schiller uses proven techniques and a CO2 laser to keep incisions as small as possible and make sure they are hidden from view. Keep reading to learn more about this procedure.
Who can benefit from blepharoplasty?
The following people may benefit from blepharoplasty:
• People who have extra skin on the upper eyelid that interferes with vision
• People with bags under their eyes or puffy eyelids
• People with fatty deposits below the eyes or above the eyes
• People who often look tired or have sagging eyelids that make them look older
Upper blepharoplasty is used to correct problems with the upper eyelid. The CO2 laser is used to make a tiny incision that is hidden in the crease. This procedure can also be combined with a brow lift or laser resurfacing to further improve your appearance.
Transconjunctival Lower Blepharoplasty
This procedure is a no-stitch procedure that leaves no visible scar. It is used to remove bags under the eyes and eliminate puffiness but if done alone cannot correct excess or loose skin. It is sometimes combined with a “skin pinch” to tighten the lower eyelid skin.
Lower Blepharoplasty With A Mid Face Lift
Dr. Schiller’s signature operation is lower blepharoplasty with a mid face lift. Blepharoplasty can significantly improve the appearance of your eyes but it doesn’t correct the hollow area between the eyelid and the cheek that often comes with aging. While blepharoplasty alone can bring substantial improvement, the hollow area above the cheek is one of the main things that can make people look tired or stressed. Dr. Schiller’s signature operation combines lower blepharoplasty with a mid face lift to correct the hollow and lift the cheek for a more youthful and energetic looking appearance. This operation was featured in the leading plastic surgery journal and Dr. Schiller has been invited to present this procedure to doctors at plastic surgery meetings around the USA and in Europe and Asia.
