You may benefit from a blepharoplastyt if your primary concern lies with sagging eyelids or bags under the eyes. Dr. Langdon can perform this procedure on the upper or lower eyelid, and many people choose to have both.
If you have concerns about sagging and skin laxity in your forehead, temple and brow area, a brow lift may help you. This procedure lifts the skin and underlying layers to raise sagging brows and smooth your temples and lateral forehead.
How Does an Eyelid Lift Work?
Dr. Langdon performs an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) using a CO2 laser, instead of a scalpel, to make incisions . On the upper eyelid he removes excess skin and underlying muscle tissue, then places stitches on the sides of the incision. In the lower lid he removes excess orbital fat to smooth the bulging “bags” in this area.
For people who have volume loss around the eyes, Dr. Langdon may recommend a Natural Eyelid Lift using small amounts of fat. This technique can permanently restore volume lost due to age. This method gives the eye area a more youthful, healthy appearance.
If you want to consider noninvasive options, Dr. Langdon recommends an erbium:YAG laser. This type of laser is used to “resurface” the skin in the “crow’s feet” and lower lid areas, and is very effective at smoothing wrinkles.
