Find effective treatment for upper eyelids in the Toronto area
When we are young, the skin around the eyes, as with all of our skin, is smooth, tight, and elastic. With age comes change; some wonderful and some less than wonderful. When it comes to changes in the skin, there are several concerns that men and women of the Toronto area have expressed. One of the most common complaints we hear from patients is upper, sagging or hooding of the eyelids.
Depending on the extent of sagging skin in the upper eyelid, eyelid upper affects the way eye make-up looks, it gives the perception of tired eyes, and sometimes even vision obstruction may occur. The eyes may develop a “hooded” appearance as skin folds over and sags over the lashes. Even if vision is not obstructed by upper eyelids, the appearance of the eyes is significantly altered. The perception of a person with heavy, upper lids is that he or she is older, tired, angry, even unfriendly. By addressing sagging eyelids with your skilled dermatologist, you can improve your overall appearance.
Standard medical therapy for upper eyelids is to surgically remove the excess skin and fatty tissue with blepharoplasty. This type of surgery is often referred to as an eye lift. Ideal candidates for this procedure are in good health and free of eye disease. Treatment is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. In sixty to ninety minutes, upper skin is cut away and the incision is stitched, typically at the lash line.
