Dr. Chernoff’s Approach
During your initial consultation, We will evaluate the skin over your eyelids to determine the severity of the looseness. Basic on your specific concerns, we will customize a surgical plan that will be tailored to address your specific needs. Excess fat in the eyelid region is sometimes associated with bulging or sagging eyelids. As part of your consultation, we will discuss with you the best approach to achieve optimal results. In some instances, combined eyelid surgery along with a brow lift or a facelift may be recommended to achieve the results you desire.
Benefits of Eyelid Lift Surgery in Santa Rosa
Lower or upper eyelid surgery, or both, can help to create a more rested and youthful appearance. This is particularly true when the procedure is combined with a facelift or a brow lift. During eyelid lift surgery, Dr. Chernoff may perform one or more of the following procedures to achieve the desired result:
- Tighten sagging or loose skin that results in folds along the eyes and interferes with the upper eyelid’s natural contour
- Minimize fine wrinkles and excess skin on the lower eyelid
- Remove any excess skin that impairs the field of vision
- Reduce undereye bags
- Remove excess fatty deposits that can cause the eyelids to appear puffy
- Lift lower eyelids that droop
Whether you are looking to improve your appearance or you have experienced problems that interfere with your vision, eyelid lift surgery can rejuvenate the appearance of your eyes.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Eyelid Lift Surgery in Santa Rosa?
A good candidate for eyelid lift surgery is any healthy individual who has no medical conditions that might interfere with normal healing. Candidates should be non-smoking and have both realistic goals and a positive outlook.
It should be kept in mind that a drooping upper eyelid is sometimes the result of the eyebrow and forehead skin relaxing. A drooping eyelid may also be caused by the upper eyelid muscle stretching. This condition is referred to as eyelid ptosis and may require a separate surgical treatment to correct.
Following your eyelid surgery, Dr. Chernoff will provide you with specific instructions regarding the best way to care for your eyes to promote healing while reducing the potential for infection. You will also be provided with instructions for following up with Dr. Chernoff after your procedure.
