Can Eyelid Surgery Get Rid of Tired Eyes?

For many individuals, the area around the eyes is among the first regions of the face to reveal noticeable signs of aging. These signs can include drooping or puffy upper eyelids and/or under eye bags and hollows. In addition to making patients look older than they feel, these features can also create a tired, serious, or angry appearance that belies one’s true state of being. For men and women who desire younger looking eyes and a more energized, alert appearance, board-certified plastic surgeon Richard Zeff, MD can perform customized eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) procedures.

Depending on the patient’s cosmetic concerns, surgical needs, and desired outcome, Dr. Zeff can design a personalized eyelid procedure that addresses the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. Through eyelid surgery, Dr. Zeff can correct drooping excess skin, tighten loose musculature, remove and sculpt fat deposits, reposition displaced tissue below the eyes, and reduce certain types of wrinkles to rejuvenate the eye area. Following eyelid surgery, Dr Zeff’s patients remark that they look and feel like a younger, more revitalized version of themselves! Best of all, the incisions made during eyelid surgery are hidden along the lower lash line or within the natural crease of the upper eyelid. For patients who desire more comprehensive facial rejuvenation, eyelid surgery can be combined with other plastic surgery procedures or non-surgical treatments.
