Eyelid Laxity

Upper eyelids can become lax over time causing them to appear hooded or even folding on top of the eye. When more severe, eyelid laxity can obstruct peripheral vision. Lower eyelids tend to pull away from the eyes and can look puffy, caused by shifting fat pads under the eyes.
TREATMENTS
For most patients, eyelid laxity is due to a decreased elastin production - common with aging. To correct excess skin on the eyelids, an in-office blepharoplasty is performed in which Dr. Clifton uses a laser-assisted handpiece to surgically remove excess skin. The treatment plan can also include injectable treatments such as Botox Cosmetic, Juvederm or Restylane to address fine lines and volume loss. Since eyelid rejuvenation depends heavily on individual goals, a consultation is required.
