Blepharoplasty (Upper and Lower Eyelid Rejuvenation)
The eyes have been described as the windows to our soul. They convey our feelings, display our personality, and are the most appealing feature of the human face. Over time, however, the eyes can develop heaviness. This can be exacerbated by the natural descent of the brow as we age. As this heaviness increases, the eyes can appear tiredand drained. The goal of plastic surgery of the eyelids, or blepharoplasty, is to address and correct this heaviness to restore that lost engaging quality of the eyes. This outpatient surgery by itself can often provide dramatic results and rejuvenation of the entire face.
At Webb Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we employ some of the most advanced techniques for approaching both the upper and lower eyelids. In approaching the eyelids, we have techniques at our disposal which address not only the outer-most skin layer of the eyelid, but also the underlying structural layers. By having the ability to address these components, our plastic surgeon can tailor your procedure to your specific needs. Elements which can be addressed include excess wrinkled upper eyelid skin, hypertrophic eyelid muscle, eyelash inversion, loss of a youthful eyelid crease, and laxity of the overall eyelid envelope. In addition, by targeting the structural support of the lower eyelids, complaints such as bags under the eyes, laxity of the lower lid margin, and drooping of the corner of the eye can be improved.
In addition to traditional blepharoplasty procedures, Dr. Webb also offers a more extensive procedure that works well for both women and men with lower eyelid bags or deep wrinkles that are not addressed by traditional procedures. By manipulating the underlying muscles and fat in a fashion tailored to each patient, he is able to achieve not only a removal of excess tissue, but rather a lifting of the underlying foundation. This allows the midface to be rejuvenated in a dramatic fashion through a traditional lower eyelid incision with no additional incisions elsewhere.
Our goal is to provide a refreshed appearance to the eye region without giving a startled or "done" look. We avoid procedures which give a hollowed out appearance from removal of soft tissue of the eyes. When you meet with our plastic surgeon, your consultation will include a discussion of your goals. Our dialogue will include other adjunctive procedures in our conversation such as use of Botox for crows feet, contributions of brow lifting to aesthetic surgery of the eyes, and use of fillers or fat grafting to improve the appearance of the eye region and correct hollowness. It is this range of options in approaching eye rejuvenation which sets Webb Aesthetic Plastic Surgery apart.
