One of the most popular procedures combined with face lifts at The Center for Cosmetic Surgery is Denver eyelid surgery. Many people watch their eyes become droopier and puffier as the years pass until that tired person they see in the mirror is just too far removed from how they feel inside, and they need to take action. Other men and women run into friends who have had an eyelid lift in Denver and decide they want that same, bright-eyed, rejuvenated look for themselves.
More than any other physical feature, your eyes connect you with others. Through your eyes, you telegraph your feelings. If aging, environmentally-damaged skin is causing your eyelids to droop, your eyes may be telling others you feel sad or even angry. If you've inherited perpetually puffy eyes from someone along your family tree, your friends may believe you're always tired. Because the eyes have such great influence on your general appearance, premature aging in this area can have an enormous impact on how others view your vitality.
Do you remember when people used to compliment you on your eyes? Can you recall the last time a friend remarked how happy you look? Maybe you should find out more about eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, and rediscover the sparkle you used to have. Dr. Andrew Wolfe and Dr. Steven Vath perform hundreds of eyelid lifts for Denver patients each year to accomplish just that.
Your consultation with the Denver plastic surgeons will answer all your questions. Just request your appointment with Dr. Vath or Dr. Wolfe at The Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Cherry Creek or in Golden.
Your Upper Eyelid Surgery in Denver with Dr. Wolfe and Dr. Vath
For most Denver patients, an eyelid lift means treating the upper lids. The delicate skin on your eyelids is particularly likely to suffer the effects of aging and environmental damage, giving up elasticity and drooping lower and lower. Some people even find their vision impaired eventually.
Dr. Wolfe and Dr. Vath make thin, crescent shaped incisions in the crease of the upper lid, eliminate excess skin and suture the incisions closed with tiny stitches. The procedure, which normally involves a very smooth recovery, can take years off your appearance as it gives you a new vibrant look.
If you believe you're a candidate for eyelid surgery, you may also benefit from a Denver, Colorado brow lift. Even if you haven't noticed your brow descending over time, you may be among the many who find out that their forehead has moved lower as they've aged, crowding their eyebrows and eyelids. In Denver, face lift is often combined with eyelid surgery to help achieve a more comprehensive cosmetic makeover. Additionally, many patients choose to have nonsurgical enhancements such as BOTOX® Cosmetic in Denver to improve surgical results. Dr. Wolfe and Dr. Vath will help you learn more and decide which approach is best for you.
Lower Eyelid Surgery
Many patients consider lower eyelid surgery in Denver in addition to upper blepharoplasty. If the main problem with the lower lids is saggy, wrinkled skin, Dr. Wolfe or Dr. Vath will perform what's known as a pinch blepharoplasty. This procedure involves removing a small amount of skin through a tiny incision just beneath the lower lashes. If puffy lower lids and dark circles are also present, the surgeons may recommend a transconjunctival blepharoplasty in Denver. In this procedure, small amounts of fat are removed through incisions inside the lower lid.
Most patients need a combination of eye and brow surgery to achieve maximum rejuvenation. Dr. Wolfe and Dr. Vath are experienced in helping patients choose. View before and after photos of facial rejuvenation patients and you'll see how they customize their surgical plan for each individual.
