Lower Eyelid

Excess and sagging skin, muscle and fat of the lower eyelids can be improved through lower eyelid cosmetic surgery.Excess and sagging skin, muscle and fat of the lower eyelids generally produce an aged or tired appearance. Surgery to correct this can produce dramatic improvements in your appearance.

This outpatient surgery is generally performed with sedation or general anesthetic. The incisions often can be hidden behind the eyelid but in some cases of excess skin, the incisions will be hidden in fine lines that surround the eye. Laser resurfacing or chemical peels can often be combined with surgery, followed by Botox and fillers later as needed.
