Nashville Eyelid Surgery
Dr. Michael R. Burgdorf is a facial plastic surgeon Franklin / Nashville patients trust to rejuvenate their facial features and help them appear youthful and vibrant. He performs blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, for Nashville patients who wish to eliminate wrinkles and sagging around the eyes.
What is Eyelid Surgery?
Also known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery improves the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. It gives a rejuvenated appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes, making you look more rested and alert.
- Upper eyelid surgery can remove excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the upper eyelids.
- Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision, can be treated by eyelid lift surgery.
- Lower eyelid blepharoplasty can remove excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid.
- Bags under the eyes can be corrected by blepharoplasty.
- Lower eyelid surgery can correct droopiness of the lower eyelids, showing white below the iris (colored portion of the eye).
The incision lines for eyelid surgery are designed for scars to be well concealed within the natural structures of the eyelid region.
Droopy conditions of the upper eyelid can be corrected through an incision within the natural crease of the upper eyelid allowing repositioning of fat deposits, tightening of muscles and tissue, and/or removal of excess skin.
Conditions of the lower eyelid may be corrected with an incision just below the lower lash line. Through this incision, excess skin in the lower eyelids is removed.
A transconjunctival incision, one hidden inside the lower eyelid, is an alternate technique to correct lower eyelid conditions and redistribute or remove excess fat.
The results of eyelid surgery will appear gradually as swelling and bruising subside to reveal a smooth, better-defined eyelid and surrounding region, and an alert and rejuvenated appearance.
Enhance Eyelid Surgery Results with Latisse:
You may be surprised to know that published expert opinions have linked thinning and loss of eyelashes to aging. This finding led Allergan to analyze the photos of a subset of women with inadequate or not enough lashes pooled from three LATISSE® clinical trials. The results revealed that the older women had thinner, shorter and lighter lashes at week 0, compared to the younger women in the trials. The demographic data suggests there may be a downward trend of eyelash fullness, length and darkness as women with inadequate lashes age.
Using Latisse can make your eyes appear less tired and give you a more youthful, alert appearance. Use Latisse to enhance your eyelid surgery result, or as a non-surgical alternative for younger-looking eyes.
