As you age, the muscles around the eyes often weaken, allowing fatty tissue to protrude, producing the commonly seen bags or pouches. Although this often is associated with the aging process, it also may be an inherited characteristic, or related to certain diseases. In addition, as the eyebrows descend, an accumulation of excess skin above the eyes can lead to a tired, hooded appearance.
OHSU providers perform eye lifts and eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty), brow lifts, ptosis correction, and laser vision correction, as well as a number of eye rejuvenation techniques to improve the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. These procedures make you look more rested and alert and are an option for adult men and women with healthy facial tissues and muscles.
