Excess Eyelid Skin Removal Surgery

When the skin on the upper or lower eyelids becomes thin or excessive, it can sag and droop. Excess eyelid skin can be caused by aging, or a condition called dermatochalasis. When the eyelids droop under too much skin, it can impact the appearance of the eyes and the individual. The eyes may look tired or older as the eyelids are pulled downward. Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg is a talented plastic surgeon who offers excess eyelid skin removal surgery to rejuvenate the eyes at Vantage Plastic Surgery in NYC.

Dermatochalasis is a condition that is linked to aging, but not everyone has this condition. While everyone does experience lost elasticity in the skin with aging that can cause loose skin on the eyelids, dermatochalasis is more pronounced and may include fatty deposits on the eyelids. There is a breakdown of the connective tissues in the skin and tissue on the upper or lower eyelids, resulting in drooping skin and fatty tissue. The upper eyelids can become hooded and sleepy in appearance, even restricting vision. The lower eyelids may have pronounced bags under the eyes, making the individual look perpetually exhausted.

Surgical Dermatochalasis Treatment

Blepharoplasty, or an eyelid lift, can be beneficial for dermatochalasis treatment, but it may also require liposculpture to remove fatty tissue. Excess eyelid skin removal surgery can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelids to remove excess skin and fatty tissue, then tightening the skin to create a firmer, more youthful appearance. Dr. Shteynberg is a double board certified plastic surgeon with years of experience performing intricate plastic surgery procedures like blepharoplasty and dermatochalasis treatment. His attention to detail and precision has created natural, beautiful results for his patients with dermatochalasis.
