The delicate skin on the upper and lower eyelids can stretch and loosen over time or due to a congenital condition. This is common with aging, but some people have excess eyelid skin even when they are younger. Dermatochalasis is the term for excess eyelid skin or “baggy” eyes. If you have drooping lower or upper eyelid skin, eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, at City Facial Plastics can remove this skin and revitalize the eyes.
When there is too much skin and fat on the eyelids, it distracts from the appeal of the eyes and face. All skin loses elasticity with age as collagen diminishes, and this change is usually first noticed on the eyelid skin. Blinking, rubbing and squinting the eyes for decades stretches the skin. Loose skin on the upper and lower eyelids creates droopy, tired or sad eyes. Removing the skin and fat and tightening the eyelids can revive the eyes and overall facial appearance.
Open, Awake Eyes with Blepharoplasty
Dr. Gary Linkov is an experienced, talented plastic surgeon who offers exceptional options in eyelid rejuvenation. For our patients with dermatochalasis, or baggy eyes, Dr. Linkov offers solutions for improving their appearance with blepharoplasty. Using tiny incisions hidden under the eyelashes or under the eyelid, excess skin and fat can be removed. The skin will be tightened, opening the eyes for a more alert, energetic appearance. Plus, some patients may experience better vision if the excess skin was impacting their sight.
