Excess Eyelid Skin Removal Surgery
When there is too much skin on the upper or lower eyelids, it can cause functional and cosmetic concerns. Referred to as dermatochalasis, excess eyelid skin is most common in older adults, but it can appear in younger people as well. Dermatochalasis can affect both upper and lower eyelids, with drooping skin and tissue. At Dallas Facial Plastic Surgery Center, we offer excess eyelid skin removal surgery for those with dermatochalasis at our facility in Irving, TX.
The upper eyelids are most commonly impacted by dermatochalasis, but the undereye area can also have excess skin. When excess skin is on the upper eyelid, it may hang over the eyelashes and even droop into the line of vision. The loose skin can feel uncomfortable and create a tired, older appearance to the eyes. On the lower eyelids, excess skin and fatty tissue can sag below the eyes. This creates eyebags that make the person look tired all the time, even when they feel energetic.
Dermatochalasis can be caused by the natural aging process as the skin loses elasticity. It can also affect younger people when genetics, disease or injuries are the cause of excess skin or puffiness around the eyes.
If you have dermatochalasis that is impacting your vision or appearance, excess eyelid removal plastic surgery may be the solution. Also referred to as blepharoplasty, the excess skin and fatty tissue can be removed from the upper and/or lower eyelids. Many patients also request an eyelid lift to tighten the eyelid for a refreshed, youthful appearance.
