Brighter Looking Eyes
Eyelid surgery restores a more youthful gaze by correcting loose skin, pouching, sagging around the eyes, sunken eyes, and sagging cheeks.
For upper eyelids, the surgery sharpens the crease, contours the lids, and reshapes the eyes. Excessive saggy eyelids due to heavy brows can also be corrected. For Asians, double eyelid surgery can create wider looking eyes.
For lower eyelids, correctable conditions include eye bags, sunken eyes, skin laxity, and sagging cheeks.
