As a person naturally ages, the skin over the eye may begin to droop creating ‘tired’ eyes. In addition, some people also develop ‘bags’ underneath the eyes. Through a minimally invasive procedure, the patient can look dramatically rejuvenated. To achieve this result, the surgeon makes a very small incision that is well hidden in the upper eyelid in order to remove excess skin. In the lower eyelid, the surgeon also makes an incision that is virtually impossible to detect in order to remove excess fat in the area.
