Eyelid Surgery Pittsburgh
Eyelid plastic surgery addresses excess skin as it forms in the eye area. The skin around the eye can lose elasticity, and fatty tissue can accumulate under the skin. Your eyes can “look older” because these aging processes leave the eyes appearing tired, wrinkled, or puffy. Even with a good skincare and eye care regimen, wrinkles, puffiness, and drooping eyelids catch up to you. Genetic factors and body chemistry can cause these aging effects in younger people. Plastic surgery may restore a youthful and refreshed appearance to your eyes.
Our patient is 48 years old and healthy. She felt that she aged prematurely in her upper lids. Dr Pautler felt she was a great candidate for an upper lid blepharoplasty done under LOCAL anesthesia in the office. Here we show her pre-op photos, what her eyes looked like 5 days after for suture removal, and her final result at 8 weeks postoperatively.
Eyelid plastic surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids to lift sagging skin that can make you look sad or angry. Lower eyelid surgery eliminates puffiness and bags around the lower eyes, giving patients a more alert appearance. Eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both.
