Whether you want to knock a few years off your appearance, or your eyelids are starting cause problems with your vision, Dr. Melanie Erb and the team have the skills necessary to deliver stunning results.
Types of Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
There are several different types of eyelid surgery that Dr. Melanie Erb may recommend based on your unique concerns. They include:
Eyelid Ptosis Surgery (Droopy Eyelid Surgery)
Ptosis is a term for when the upper eyelid droops down covering a portion of the eye. The condition can be mild or severe (covering all the way down to the pupil). Ptosis surgery manipulates and tightens the upper eyelid to lift it and improve vision.
Upper Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift)
During an upper eyelid blepharoplasty, we remove excess skin and fat in the upper eyelid for a younger, more refreshed appearance.
Lower Blepharoplasty (Lower Eyelid Bags / Dark Circles)
During a lower eyelid blepharoplasty, not much excess tissue is removed, instead the fat is repositioned to restore volume loss and smooth out the area between the eyelid and cheek.
Tear Trough Treatment (Sunken Eye Treatment)
This procedure uses hyaluronic acid-based fillers to fill in hollowing around the eyes and smooth out wrinkles to rejuvenate the lower eyelid area.
Eyebrow Lift (Forehead Lift)
Eyebrow lifts are done to reverse the loss of elasticity that often comes with age. By lifting sagging skin, we are able to reduce the appearances of lines and wrinkles.
Almond Eye Surgery
Many individuals consider almond-shaped eyes, or eyes that are slightly turned up at the outer corners to be more attractive. Almond eye surgery. The highly specialized procedure involves lifting the outer corner, or canthus. In some cases, the lower eyelid may need adjustment as well.
Revisional Eyelid Surgery
Individuals may wish to choose a revision or correction surgery if you are unhappy with the results of a previous eyelid surgery which may include scarring or if the natural aging process has faded the initial results of surgery.
Revisional Ptosis Surgery
Similar to revisional eyelid surgery, individuals may wish to have a revisional ptosis surgery performed to address problems with droopy eyelids that stull occur or complications from a previous surgery.
Asian Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Crease Surgery)
In some cases, patients of Asian descent may be unhappy by bulky or fatty eyelids. Asian Blepharoplasty surgery reshapes the skin around the eye, creating an upper eyelid with a crease.
This procedure is done to address bags under eyes, fallen eyelids or very round eyes. During a canthoplasty, the outer corners of the eyelids are lifted to rejuvenate the eyes and eliminate a tired or sad appearance.
Epicanthoplasty (Epicanthal Fold Removal Surgery)
The epicanthal fold is the fold of skin that covers the inner corner of the eye. In many individuals of Asian descent, this fold can get heavy, leading to a harsh appearance of the eye. During an epicanthoplasty, the majority of the fold is removed, but still leaving a slight amount to retain soft, almond-shaped eyes. It is often done in conjunction with Asian Blepharoplasty procedures.
Midface Lift and Cheek Augmentation
The midface is considered the triangle are between the corners of the eyes and the corner of the mouth. Natural aging can lead to the sagging of the cheek fat pads in this area, making patients appear older. Midface lifts and cheek augmentations. The procedure lifts these areas to address sagging skin, and prominent lower eye sockets.
