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.

If your eyes constantly look tired or sad due to excess eyelid skin, contact City Facial Plastics in NYC to schedule your appointment with Dr. Gary Linkov. Learn more about how having a blepharoplasty done can improve the appearance of baggy eyes. We offer excess eyelid skin removal and eyelid lifts to rejuvenate the eyes and face.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!

Rachel G.

Wow is all I can say! Fantastic doctor that gives you an extremely pleasant, professional, and realistic experience. Would highly recommend and give 6 stars if I could.
