Over time, the skin around our eyes eventually starts to sag and droop. This can create a worn out, tired appearance that most of us would rather not have to live with. In addition, the aging process leads to a loss of underlying tissue, which tends to create a hollowed-out or sunken look beneath the lower eyelids. To correct these issues, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gregory Diehl offers eyelid surgery.
Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to address the patient’s specific needs around the eyes. Regardless of the technique used, incisions for eyelid surgery are always hidden. In some cases, excess skin and muscle are removed. Depending on the desired correction, Dr. Diehl will focus on the upper, lower or both eyelids.
