As we age, the skin on our upper eyelids may lose its elasticity causing eyelids to sag. In some people, droopy eyelids may actually interfere with vision by decreasing upper and peripheral vision or making rooms seem darker. Blepharoplasty, a surgery to correct the eyelids, removes excess skin and can be performed in-office.
Eyelid surgery that is performed to correct vision may be covered by insurance while the same surgery performed simply for cosmetic reasons is usually not covered by insurance. Blepharoplasty performed on the lower eyelids to correct bags under the eyes is almost never covered by insurance.
Recovery generally takes about 2 weeks.
A variety of cosmetic procedures can help remove excess neck skin and give the appearance of a firmer jawline. Whether you are trying to reduce wrinkles, sagging skin, fat deposits under the chin or skin discoloration, these treatments may be used alone or in combination. These options include:
- Broad band light (BBL) to reduce skin discoloration
- SkinTyte to tighten skin laxity with a noninvasive series of treatments
- Kybella to reduce fat deposits under the chin and lift the skin
- Laser resurfacing to tighten skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles
- In-office direct neck lift
Direct neck lift surgery may be an option for patients who want more dramatic improvements in their neck contour but do not want to undergo a more extensive surgical face and neck lift.
