The loss of elasticity is a skin concern that develops with age. In addition to a general loosening of the skin, biochemical changes also affect the tone of muscles beneath the skin. Without proper support, small pockets of fat become more visible. The synergistic effect of aging can lead to a heavy appearance in the eyelid area. Whether on the upper or lower lids, loose skin and excess fat can cause one to appear aged, tired, sad, or even angry. Men and women in the Nashville area can address concerns such as this with laser blepharoplasty (laser eye lift).
*Results are not guaranteed and vary from person to person.
Some of the common issues solved with eyelid surgery include:
- Excess skin on the lower eyelid
- Puffiness from fatty deposits on the upper eyelid
- Droopiness or under eye bags
- Sagging skin on the upper eyelid, which in turn can improve visibility
As much as sagging skin on or around the eyes can be concerning, a simultaneous concern with blepharoplasty is that a lift procedure that pulls the eyelid upwards will lead to a startling wide-eyed appearance. The beauty of laser blepharoplasty is that there is no tight pulling on the skin and therefore the ability to achieve a beautiful, undistorted result. The laser surgical procedure is also very precise, sealing blood vessels immediately. The reduction in bleeding during the procedure means minimal scarring and post-operative discomfort.
Laser blepharoplasty is suitable for many men and women. Before treatment, a thorough medical history and examination take place to confirm good health and the absence of eye diseases or other medical conditions that may affect the outcome of care.
We use our eyes as one of our major avenues of communication. Whether we want to admit it or not, the skin around our eyes will suggest our mood, characteristics, and even our health. Sagging, puffy eyelids can make us appear tired, angry, and unhealthy. Opening up the eyes with an outpatient laser blepharoplasty procedure allows us to reveal our best selves.
