The aging process can have a significant affect on the appearance of the eyes. Because the skin above and beneath the eyes is so thin, these areas are often among the first on the body to wrinkle and sag. The visible signs of aging around the eyes often cause men and women to appear much older or more tired than they really are. If you are fed up with looking tired and wish to look as vibrant as you feel, Dr. Howard Sutkin can help. Using the latest in eyelid rejuvenation techniques, Dr. Sutkin has performed eyelid surgery for many men and women from all over Northern California at his practices in San Jose and Los Gatos. With upper and/or lower eyelid surgery Dr. Sutkin can give you a refreshed appearance and make you look years younger.
Upper Eyelid Surgery
Upper eyelid surgery is performed to reduce or eliminate the appearance of drooping eyelids. Many men and women find that drooping eyelids make them appear tired, angry, or sad even when they are not. In addition to causing these cosmetic concerns, the upper eyelids can droop so much over time that they begin to obstruct vision. By removing the drooping skin and fatty tissue through incisions in the upper eyelids, Dr. Sutkin can restore a refreshed and youthful-looking appearance. The recovery period after eyelid surgery is very brief, and the scars from the incisions are hidden in the natural creases of the eyelids.
Lower Eyelid Surgery
Excess skin and fat can accumulate underneath the eyes, creating puffy, unattractive bags that make people look tired and less alert. Dr. Sutkin will remove excess skin and fatty tissue through an incision made in the natural creases under the eye. Any scarring after the procedure will be virtually undetectable. Lower eyelid surgery is a safe, effective procedure to remove the bags underneath the eyes and restore a smooth, rejuvenated, and youthful look.
