The eyes, often referred to as the windows to the soul, play a significant role in facial aesthetics. Unfortunately, aging or conditions like dermatochalasis can cause excess eyelid skin, resulting in a tired or aged appearance. Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg, a highly skilled double board-certified plastic surgeon at Vantage Plastic Surgery in NYC, offers specialized excess eyelid skin removal surgery to rejuvenate the eyes and enhance overall facial harmony.
Dermatochalasis, a condition associated with aging, involves the presence of excess skin on the upper or lower eyelids. While natural aging causes a loss of skin elasticity, dermatochalasis is characterized by a more pronounced breakdown of connective tissues in the skin and underlying structures. This leads to drooping skin, often accompanied by fatty deposits on the eyelids. The upper eyelids may become hooded and saggy, affecting vision, while the lower eyelids may develop prominent bags, contributing to a perpetually tired appearance.
Surgical Dermatochalasis Treatment
Blepharoplasty, commonly known as an eyelid lift, serves as an effective solution for treating dermatochalasis. In some cases, additional liposculpture may be required to address fatty tissue deposits. Excess eyelid skin removal surgery involves meticulously excising surplus skin and fatty tissue from both the upper and lower eyelids. Dr. Shteynberg, with his dual board certifications and extensive experience, specializes in performing intricate procedures like blepharoplasty to address dermatochalasis. His commitment to precision and attention to detail has consistently delivered natural and beautiful results for patients seeking relief from the effects of dermatochalasis.
