Eyes

Eyelid skin
The skin around the eyes is thin and fine wrinkles around the eyes are often the first signs of aging. Using a combination of eye creams, peels, injectable fillers and Botox, we can help to smoothen and plump up the skin of the eyes.

Eyelid surgery/brow lift

Some of us are born without a double eyelid, or we may have a fold that is too low. We can help you create a fold which can open up your eyes and brighten up your face. Double eyelids can be created using an incisional (open) approach or a suture (closed) technique.

With age, the skin of the upper eyelid tends to sag and cover and hide the eyelid fold. The brow often sags as well, and this leads to us constantly raising our eyebrows to compensate. This usually happens slowly over a number of years such that we may not even be aware of it. An eyelid lift, with or without a brow lift, helps to lift the brow and remove the excess upper eyelid skin.

Ptosis is a condition where there is a true drooping of the upper eyelid. Ptosis correction involved resetting the level of the upper eyelid.

Eyebag removal/cheek lift
No two eyebags are the same, so the type of surgery recommended depends on the severity of the eyebags as well as the condition of the eyelid skin and surrounding tissues.

Eyebag surgery may be performed through the transconjunctival approach (scarless), or the subciliary (open) approach. Fat may be removed or redistributed as necessary.

Some patients will benefit from a simultaneous cheek or midface lift, which will enhance the appearance of the lower eyelid and the cheek, making the two areas blend and erasing the hollows which are signs of aging.

Thermage
Thermage can be used specifically for the skin around the eyes; it improves the “hooded” appearance and helps to smoothen out the skin and improve fine lines in the periorbital region.
