Do people ask you if you are tired or upset, even when you feel energetic and happy? Your eyes may be sending the wrong message. Age and other factors can create bags or circles under the eyes, or they can cause a hooded, droopy appearance of the upper eyelid, making you look unrested, older and even sad. Surgical options can correct these factors using blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, making you look younger and more attractive.
Both age and genetics can affect the appearance of the eye. The delicate skin and tissue around the eye can sag over time. The fat deposits in the upper cheek can shift, causing bags and dark circles. Some people are genetically dispositioned to have a hooded appearance on their upper eyelid or a hollow look under their eyes. Genetics can also create smaller eyes without a visible upper lid crease, which some people would prefer changed.
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, can change the appearance of the eye from these different factors. If you live in San Raphael or Petaluma, you can seek eyelid lift surgery at our clinic in Mill Valley. Our expert facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Evan Ransom, has the experience and training to perform many different eyelid procedures with proven results for our patients.
If age and gravity have created bags, dark circles or hooded upper lids, this can be corrected with eyelid lift surgery. An upper eyelid lift can remove excess fat and skin that make eyes look tired or droopy. Lower eyelid lifts can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, bags and circles under the eye for a more energetic appearance. In some cases, a double eyelid lift is needed, opening the eyes and giving a more youthful look to your face.
