Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) removes excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids. It can be performed in our office under local anesthesia. The procedure corrects droopy upper lids and the puffy “bags” of the lower lids. For most of us, our eyes are our best feature. In fact, upon meeting someone, we look at the eyes just to quickly gauge the person’s mood, health, vitality and age. Dr. Dick often recommends performing eyelid surgery either before Facelift or at the same time. We believe that eyelid surgery gives you a “big” effect from a “little” surgery.
As we age, our eyes become weaker, causing us to squint. Brow lifts can revitalize drooping or “lined” foreheads, and if needed, lift the brows back to a more youthful position, helping to correct an aging, tired or concerned look. We have all seen the surprised, over corrected look in some celebrities. Dr. Dick prides himself on maintaining a natural appearance. Botox® may also smooth forehead lines, but is unpredictable in its ability to “lift” the brows.
