The eyes are a dominant feature in the face and are typically the first thing people notice upon contact. Overtime, the eyes can begin to appear fatiqued with puffiness and skin laxity though one may feel completely healthy and energized inside. Due to ones genetics, liftstyle, and skincare regimen, a fatigued appearance may be more pronounced. No matter the cause, eyelid surgery is one of the most popular ways to rejuvenate and refresh ones appearance.
Whether your eyelids are sagging, or you’re noticing fatty deposits and wrinkles underneath your eyes, eyelid surgery can not only improve your appearance but can boost your confidence as well. Dr. Thompson performs upper and lower blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) often with outstanding results. Upper eyelid surgery is often performed under local anesthetic in the office and is a relatively minor procedure. To learn more and watch one of Dr. Thompson’s patients receive upper eyelid surgery, watch our eyelid surgery episode on The Younger You with Troy Thompson.
For the lower lids, surgery to reposition the fat and remove excess skin yields dramatic results. Many patients opt to have this procedure done in conjunction with facelift surgery in a surgical facility.
Under-eye hollowing is another common concern that can make one appear more tired than they actually are. Dermal fillers formulated with hyaluronic acid work well to fill in the troughs and smooth the under-eye area for a rejuvenated appearance. Most dermal fillers last approximately 6-9 months and can be injected in one 30 minute treatment with no downtime. For a more permanent solution, Dr. Thompson often does in-office fat injections by taking fat from another area of the body and injecting it to the under-eye tear troughs. For information on under-eye procedures, visit our tear trough rejuvenation page.
