CFA Beauty providers have deep expertise in eyelid surgery. The eyelids are small but delicate structures that protect and maintain the health of our eye. 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.
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 warts, sties and basal cell carcinoma on the eyelids – we can diagnose and treat these concerns as well, in a caring and peaceful environment.
