Cosmetic Conditions

Lower Lid Fullness

A common concern among patients is the appearance of bags under the eyes that make them appear tired, drawn and older than they wish. Lower eyelid bags occur in different people for different reasons; genetics, bone structure, loss of facial volume with aging, gravity, allergies and protrusion of the fat within the eye socket are just a few of the causes. Depending upon the severity of the bags, there are many non-surgical options that may help reduce the appearance of the excess tissue.

Upper Lid Fullness

One of the primary concerns that patients often desire to improve, is the drooping of the upper eye area. This droop is often a result of the loss of skin elasticity and its diminished ability to “snap back” over time. In addition, there may be excessive fat pockets present, resulting in a “heavy” appearance of the upper lids. For patients with a larger amount of excess skin and tissue, an upper eyelid blepharoplasty (also known as an eye lift) may be an appropriate solution. A blepharoplasty is an outpatient surgical procedure...

Sagging Face, Neck, & Jowls

Often as people get older the cheeks, eyelids, lower face and neck begin to sag and lose volume. Loss of volume in the cheek area causes the folds / lines seen around the nose to the corner of the mouth (called the nasolabial folds) to deepen and as everything sags down so does the lower eyelids, jowls and neck. One non-surgical technique though very dependant on the skin laxity is Thermage. During a Thermage® procedure, radiofrequency heat penetrates deep into the skin to create tiny wounds.

There are several surgical procedures available to treat this condition and restore normal appearance and function to the eyelids.

Chalazion

A chalazion is a swollen bump on the eyelid. It happens when the eyelid’s oil gland clogs up. It may start as an internal hordeolum or stye. At first, you might not know you have a chalazion as there is little or no pain. But as it grows, your eyelid may get red, swollen, and sometimes tender to touch. If the chalazion gets large, it can press on your eye and cause blurry vision. A chalazion is not usually painful. It is a bump that usually develops farther back on the eyelid than a stye. It is caused by a clogged oil gland. Rarely does it make the entire eyelid swell.
