Make your eyes shine
and look radiant

As we age, the skin around the eyes loses elasticity, leading to sagging eyelids and brows. This natural process can cause a tired or aged appearance. Eyebrows may also droop, further exacerbating the perception of aging. However, eyelid surgery in Lone Tree and Denver offers a solution by removing excess skin and fat, restoring a youthful contour to the eyes and brows. With rejuvenated eyelids and lifted brows, your eyes can shine brightly, exuding vitality and radiance, ultimately enhancing your overall facial harmony and beauty.

What is eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure aimed at rejuvenating the appearance of the eyelids. It involves removing excess skin, muscle, and sometimes fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids to address issues such as drooping, puffiness, and wrinkles. The procedure can also correct functional problems, such as impaired vision due to sagging eyelids. By carefully reshaping the eyelids, blepharoplasty aims to create a more youthful, alert, and refreshed look, enhancing both aesthetic appeal and quality of life.

Eyelid surgery can correct:

  • Drooping or sagging upper eyelids
  • Puffy or baggy lower eyelids
  • Excess skin and fat around the eyes
  • Fine lines and wrinkles on the eyelids
  • Impaired vision due to overhanging upper eyelid skin
  • Uneven or asymmetrical eyelids
  • Tired or aged appearance around the eyes
  • Hooded eyelids obscuring the natural eyelid crease
  • Under-eye bags or dark circles
  • Eyelid ptosis (drooping eyelids)

Types of eyelid surgery

Upper eyelid surgery
Upper eyelid surgery, or upper blepharoplasty, targets the upper eyelids to address sagging skin, excess fat deposits, and drooping that may obstruct vision or create a tired appearance. During the procedure, incisions are typically made along the natural crease of the eyelid to remove or reposition tissue, resulting in a rejuvenated and more open-eyed look. Upper eyelid surgery can also enhance the definition of the eyelid crease.

Lower eyelid surgery
Lower eyelid surgery, known as lower blepharoplasty, focuses on the lower eyelids to correct issues such as under-eye bags, puffiness, and wrinkles. This involves making incisions either below the lower lash line or inside the lower eyelid (transconjunctival approach) to access and address excess fat and loose skin. Lower eyelid surgery aims to restore a smoother contour to the lower eyelids and reduce the appearance of dark circles or hollows.

Brow lift
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure that elevates and rejuvenates the brow area. While not strictly an eyelid surgery, it can significantly impact the appearance of the eyes by addressing drooping brows that contribute to a heavy or tired look. By lifting the brow position and smoothing forehead wrinkles, a brow lift can create a more alert and youthful look, complementing the results of eyelid surgery in Lone Tree and Denver.
