Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty) Bloomington
Eyelids can become droopy or develop excess fullness/skin with age making us look more tired than we actually are. An upper eyelid lift can address excess skin on the upper eyelids. We can also remove fat and muscle if there is a lot of puffiness in those areas. This maneuver will smooth the contour and results in a more youthful and refreshed look. The lower eyelids can age too.
If it’s just puffiness, Dr. Tattini, Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeon in Bloomington, IL, can remove the fat by making an incision on the inside of the eyelid hiding the scar. Isolated bags of the lower eyelids are treated very well using this technique. If you have more issues than just puffiness, some skin can be removed and your lower eyelid tightened. Dr. Tattini can even add a cheek lift with fat grafting/repositioning if indicated as well. This restores your eyelid shape, skin tone, and provides fullness in the eyelid/cheek junction making you look more youthful.
Brows often are a contributing factor to upper eyelid pathology. Brows being too low can contribute to the excess skin on the upper eyelids. Consequently, upper blepharoplasty is often combined with a brow lifting procedure. Dr. Tattini received specialized training in endoscopic plastic surgery which enables him to perform maximal surgery with minimal incisions. One of the best indications for endoscopic surgery is brow lifting. Small incisions can be made in the hairline and endoscopic instruments are used to release the brow retaining ligaments and raise and fixate the brow in a sophisticated manner. This is a very effective way to rejuvenate the periorbital area in a non-invasive manner.
