Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Catherine Durboraw & Dr. Carolee Cutler Peck are fellowship trained, board certified eyelid surgeons.

CFA Beauty surgeons have extensive expertise in eyelid (oculoplastic) surgery. The eyelids are delicate structures that protect and maintain the health of our eye.  But yet the eyes are the window to our soul and say so much about us without uttering a word.  They can be susceptible to a variety of problems, often related to aging. As we age, our skin thins out, brows drop, our tissue stretches and sags, and the soft tissue loses volume. The results can be heavy upper eyelids (ptosis) or excess upper eyelid skin (dermatochalasis) that may interfere with vision, and if they do, insurance companies will often pay for surgery to lift the lids.

Blepharoplasty Surgery is the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedure for patients suffering from dermatochalasis. 

Loss of elasticity of the skin and sagging, baggy eyelids can also be treated. Lower eyelid surgery can help rejuvenate your appearance and is a common cosmetic surgical procedure performed at the same time as reconstructive upper eyelid surgery. Other concerns include benign lesions, inflammatory problems, and skin cancers on the eyelids – we can diagnose and treat these concerns as well, in a caring and professional environment.
