How Can I Improve Droopy Upper Eyelids?

February 2, 2018

Droopy upper eyelids, the medical term for which is dermatochalasis, results from excess skin. This problem often worsens with aging and results from sagging of the eyebrows and/or volume loss around the eyelids. The droopy lids can make you appear tired and older than you actually are. In addition, droopy eyelids can be more than a cosmetic concern. In severe cases, the drooping eyelid skin can cover part of the pupil and interfere with vision. The best way to remove the excess skin of the upper eyelids is a laser blepharoplasty.

Laser Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure in which Dr. Langdon uses a CO2 laser to excise the excess skin of the upper eyelids. The difference between Laser Blepharoplasty and conventional blepharoplasty is the use of the laser instead of a scalpel. Unlike a scalpel, the CO2 laser seals blood vessels during surgery, which improves the surgeon’s view of the eyelid anatomy during the procedure and results in less post-operative bruising and swelling. This technique allows patients to look better sooner after the surgery; most patients are fully recovered within a week.

The result of a Laser Blepharoplasty is more vibrant, youthful-appearing eyes and a more alert and energetic appearance.

Dr. Langdon and all of his nurses and staff are very friendly and they know how to make you feel very comfortable. He is a very experienced doctor, I call him an artistic dr. because he’s so precise in his work. If you would like something done right, dr. Langdon is the one to see. I am very pleased with my results and very grateful for him and his staff being here in Ct.
