Aging of the lower eyelids is typically associated with the development of crepey, lax skin, volume loss around the bony orbital rim and upper cheek as well as bulging of fat pads around the eyes. Aging of the upper eyelids often presents as excess skin over the eyelids as well as a general volume loss in the areas beneath the brows and upper eyelids.
There are a few ways to perform upper and lower eyelid surgery, depending on your skin and goals. Upper eyelid surgery involves the removal of excess skin over the upper eyelids, which creates a more youthful eyelid show. Upper eyelid surgery scars are minimal and hidden in the natural eyelid crease. Lower eyelid surgery often uses the transconjunctival method, which puts the incisions on the inside of the eyelid.
