Eyelid Surgery at 25?
Posted on 06/20/2013 on behalf of Dr. Kenrick Spence, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Eyelid surgery in Orlando isn't just reserved for men and women of a certain age. Bags beneath the eyes and excess skin above them can develop even for people in their 20s. In fact, some people are born with droopy eyes. Patients of all ages can benefit from eyelid surgery.
Under-eye bags can make even young people look tired and older than they are. The eyelid surgery procedures I perform in Orlando can remove those bags. I can also use fat transfer (or fat grafting) to restore volume to under-eye hollows above the cheeks. Rejuvenating the skin around the eyes may not even involve surgery, but other treatments such as laser skin resurfacing or a chemical peel.
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty (or eye lift) can eliminate excess, droopy skin around the upper eyelids and restore firmer, more youthful contours to the brow. In some cases, this may be combined with a brow lift or BOTOX® Cosmetic to rejuvenate the brow and further brighten the eyes. A brow lift, however, is usually more common for patients in their 40s.
