People often come to our Providence office with concerns about the aging appearance of their eyes. These individuals often remark that they are tired of being told by family, friends, and colleagues that they look “tired” or “sad” when they in fact are not feeling this way.
The aging eyelid can present with excessive or loose skin in the upper eyelid, lower eyelid droopiness, and/or by circles and puffiness under the lower eyelids. For some men and women, the lax skin of the upper eyelids weighs down the lids and adds to the tired appearance.
Fortunately, our specialized eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a procedure that can help treat the aging eyelids, giving patients a more well-rested and youthful appearance. This intricate eyelid procedure requires superb surgical skill as well as carefully placed incisions to remove the loose/sagging skin, fatty deposits, and circles at the eyelid-cheek junction. Our unique eyelid surgery specializes in giving patients a natural, refreshed appearance. It is performed using intravenous sedation, rather than general anesthesia, to make the surgery pain free and safe.
Eyelid surgery can also be combined with a brow-lift or brow-lifting injections for a complete eyelid rejuvenation. For patients seeking non-surgical treatment options, we also offer an express eyelid rejuvenation treatment plan that includes a combination of Retin A, special eye creams, peels (to smooth the skin), and/or injections such as Botox and Juvéderm.
