Whether you suffer from sagging upper eyelids or bags beneath your eyes, Dr. Marchant can restore youthful firmness to the skin around your eyes with eyelid surgery. Upper and lower eyelid surgery removes excess skin from the eye area for a smoother, refreshed appearance.

Incisions will be made along the eyelid’s natural folds and the excess fat and skin, which cause drooping, will be removed. Eyelids will look normal one to two weeks following surgery. Fat pads surrounding the eye which make the eye area appear puffy, tired, and aged may also be removed for a smoother and more youthful complexion. The techniques used at Marchant Plastic Surgery ensure a natural looking result.

This procedure alone can take years off your appearance because of the eyes’ dramatic impact on your facial expressions. Where you once looked tired, eyelid surgery can make you look naturally youthful and rejuvenated. Although eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, cannot give you the elastic skin of your youth, this procedure seldom needs to be performed more than once in a patient’s lifetime. Some skin elasticity will be lost over time, but seldom enough to undo the aesthetic benefits of the eyelid surgery procedure.
