Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid Surgery

As we age, collagen in the skin starts to break down, which contributes to wrinkles and sagging. The delicate skin around the eyes is where the first signs of aging usually appear. An eyelid lift can reduce the signs of aging and achieve a youthful and more refreshed appearance.

Eyelid surgery may be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. During the surgical procedure, your surgeon will remove excess tissue (skin, muscle, or fat) through very fine incisions. They will then lift the eye area and suture the incisions closed.

Types of Anesthesia

There are three main choices for anesthesia:

An eyelid lift achieves several esthetic goals around the eye area:

  • Removes excess skin
  • Tightens surrounding tissues
  • Lifts heavy and drooping eyelids
  • Removes fat bulges
  • Restores a bright-eyed appearance

When you come to Carolinas Center for Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Mohamed will listen to your cosmetic goals and design a treatment plan to meet them. If an eyelid lift is recommended, you and your surgeon will determine the details of your treatment, including your options for anesthesia.
