He can help you determine if you’re an ideal candidate for a double eyelid surgery, as well as walk you through what you can expect from the procedure.

Then you might be an excellent candidate for an Eyebrow and/or an Eyelid Lift. Both procedures are aimed at correcting sagging skin that comes with the aging process. Both procedures have helped patients look more well-rested and refreshed, as well as turned back the clock on their appearance.

But when it comes down to it, which procedure is right for you – an Eyelid and/or an Eyebrow Lift?

Do I Need an Upper Blepharoplasty or a Lower Blepharoplasty?

If the eyes are the window to the soul, then they might be telling the world that you need a bit more sleep.  Sagging eyelids, undereye bags, and dark circles can make it look like you’re not getting enough rest, even if you regularly log in eight hours of sleep per night (if so, what’s your secret?).  That’s because the aging process breaks down fat pads around the eyes, creating sagging eyelids and undereye bags.  The eyelid skin is also really thin, making it that much more vulnerable to persistent wrinkles and fine lines.

A blepharoplasty procedure is a surgery designed to address sagging eyelids, undereye bags, fat pads, and significant wrinkles around the eyes.  This surgery is usually broken up into two procedures:
