For patients experiencing droopy or sagging eyelids – or simply excess skin around the eyes, Dr. Brian Brown specializes in a procedure known as Blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that includes repairing droopy eyelids by removing excess skin, muscle, and fat around the eyes. This condition is mainly related to simply the normal aging process. When we age, our eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. This can cause excess fat to gather above and below our eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, drooping upper lids, and bags under our eyes. In addition to making us look older than we feel, severely sagging skin around our eyes can actually impair our peripheral or side vision. It can reduce or eliminate such impaired vision. Depending on the severity of the condition, can be covered by your insurance or Medicare. Dr. Brown normally performs this procedure on an outpatient basis. To help decide if blepharoplasty is right for you, ask Dr. Brown what results you can realistically expect, and learn the benefits and risks.
