Savannah Eyelid Surgery - Cosmetic Ophthalmology - Blepharoplasty & Eyebrow Lifts
Sagging or drooping eyelids can affect more than just your appearance and self-esteem. For some people, this problem in the upper eyelid interferes with vision and makes tasks like driving and reading difficult.
Savannah eye care specialists Michael S. Landa, MD, and Elizabeth H. Landa, MD are here to help. With eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, in Savannah, GA, our doctors improve the appearance of skin around eyes, restoring unobstructed vision and a more youthful look.
Why Consider Eyelid Surgery in Savannah, GA?
As you age, your skin becomes less elastic, and muscles loosen, creating unattractive sagging. These changes happen all over the body, but in some areas—such as around the eye—the effects are highly noticeable.
If your eyelids are droopy, saggy, or puffy, you look older than you are, or you may be unhappy with the appearance of eyelids and under eyes. If you'd like to improve the appearance of skin around your eyes, cosmetic eyelid surgery may be the perfect way to achieve this goal. This procedure is also an excellent option to improve your vision by eliminating excess tissues on the upper eyelid.
Cosmetic Eye Surgery at Landa & Landa Eye Care Specialists
During eyelid surgery, excess tissue is removed from the upper or lower eyelids by an incision hidden in the natural crease of the upper lid, or just beneath the lash line of the lower lid. If the eyelid droops, the muscle that controls movement of the upper lid is tightened.
The total appointment time is around two hours, with the procedure itself lasting just half that. After surgery, you'll need around a week's time to recover and see noticeable results. Cosmetic eyelid surgery creates a more youthful look and improves your vision by doing away with excess tissue.
Complete Cosmetic Eye Care: Eyebrow Lifts and Eyelid Surgery
A blepharoplasty can improve the appearance of the skin around the eyes, but won't correct the appearance of drooping brows, or address eyebrow wrinkles and crow's feet.
An eyebrow lift, however, targets the brow specifically, and can be performed in combination with a blepharoplasty. During the procedure, incisions are made just above the eyebrow, in forehead creases, or at the hair line. The skin is lifted, tightened, and, in some cases, the underlying muscles can be adjusted too. This treatment greatly compliments our eyelid procedures to provide patients with a more youthful appearance.
