Eyelid Surgery at Young Medical Spa
Eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, is a facial contouring procedure that is performed for both aesthetic or medical reasons. Young Medical Spa® offers three types of eyelid surgery, including upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery, and laser eyelid surgery performed by double board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Aaron Shapiro.
Upper eyelid surgery improves the appearance of droopy eyelids that can impair a patient’s vision and cause the face to look aged. Incisions are made at the lines and creases of the eyelids to reduce the appearance of scarring. Fat, muscle, and loose skin are removed to improve the patient’s vision and result in a younger-looking appearance.
Lower eyelid surgery is typically performed to correct puffiness and excess skin below the eyes. Incisions are made along the lash line and smile creases to hide scarring. Excess fat, muscle, and skin are removed to reduce puffiness and result in more youthful look around the eyes. For those who experience a sunken or hollowed appearance around the eyes, dermal fillers or a fat transfer can be performed to restore volume to the area for an overall younger look.
