There are many reasons a person can have under eye bags, drooping eyelids, and other aesthetic problems of the eye area.
Aging in the eye area can have a huge impact on resting facial expressions, often creating a perpetually tired, bored, or even angry expression. Besides being misleading, a tired appearance in the mirror can be disheartening and have an impact on self-esteem. As a solution to this common problem, our office in Atlanta offers a popular procedure known as blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery).
The aging eyelid starts to droop and sag as muscles weaken, skin loses elasticity, and fat starts to press against the thinning skin of the lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty's purpose is to reposition facial fat and remove excess skin for an alert, awake, and youthful expression.
There are two types of eyelid surgery: upper and lower. The two can be performed combined or as standalone procedures. They may also be performed with other procedures such as a brow lift or face lift as part of a comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Lower blepharoplasty is primarily used to address undereye bags and pockets of fat beneath the eye, while upper blepharoplasty is to correct drooping upper eyelids that affect expression and can even affect normal vision.View Procedure Pricing
