- Reduce the appearance of heavy bags underneath the eyes.
- Eliminate puffiness underneath the eyes.
- Tighten excess skin in the delicate eye area.
- Refresh tired-looking eyes.
- Improve the appearance of sagging skin.
- Eliminate wrinkles, fine lines and crow’s feet.
- Restore a refreshed and well-rested facial appearance.
Dr. Scarpidis’ personalized approach to eyelid surgery
For patients who want to reverse facets of aging that can impact the delicate eye area, eyelid surgery can be an ideal aesthetic procedure. Extensively skilled in this nuanced and precise surgery, Dr. Scarpidis calls upon his artistry, attention to detail and technical expertise to achieve impeccable results.
Prior to your surgery, you will have a private meeting with Dr. Scarpidis to plan your procedure. During that time, he will carefully evaluate your skin quality, signs of aging and facial features as a whole to develop a customized eyelid rejuvenation treatment plan that will restore a coveted youthful look. As he focuses on making subtle surgical changes that yield dramatic aesthetic improvements – Dr. Scarpidis will also ensure that your final outcome refreshes your appearance in an extremely natural way. Depending on your needs, he may also combine eyelid surgery with a custom blend of less-invasive treatments, like BOTOX Cosmetic and advanced laser therapy, to accomplish the best possible results.
The eyelid surgery procedure
You can expect your eyelid surgery to be performed under general anesthesia, which will ensure your complete comfort and safety. Dr. Scarpidis will begin your procedure by rejuvenating your upper eyelids first. He will make a careful incision in your upper eyelid crease, which will ensure that any resulting scars are completely hidden from view. Through that opening, he will remove unwanted fat and skin that may be causing your eyelids to droop. He will then tighten the underlying muscles and elevate the skin to achieve a more open and youthful expression.
In refreshing your lower eyelids, Dr. Scarpidis will focus on removing bags, puffiness and dark circles to achieve a more rested look. To begin, he’ll make an incision just below the lower lash line, well-hidden within your natural creases and contours. He will then remove any unwanted fat and excess skin, before tightening the underlying muscles to restore your youthful appearance.
