Eyelid Rejuvenation

The eyes are amongst the most important facial aesthetic features which allow you to communicate, connect, and convey your natural charm. When the eyelids look heavy, droopy, or have dark circles and bags, this can make a person appear sad and fatigued. By contrast, those eyelids that are open, radiant, and well-positioned with aesthetic contours make a person appear alert, energetic, and engaging. Our goal at EFI is to work with you to create and restore natural, aesthetic, and functionally-optimized eyelid anatomy and contour that will convey your vitality and natural charm.   

 

An eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) varies in complexity, but very rarely is it a simple removal of upper eyelid skin alone. More commonly, maneuvers such as repositioning of fat pads, ptosis repair, tendon tightening, canthoplasty, brow-lifting, or lacrimal gland repositioning are also required to achieve the most natural and effective result. Removing the extra skin alone without addressing these other issues can result in a suboptimal outcome (i.e. residual drooping) and increases the risk for surgical complications (i.e. dry eyes, etc.) Previous plastic surgery techniques were subtractive in nature, primarily focusing only on removal of skin and fat. However, this can result in a sunken, hollowed look that does not particularly project youthfulness or beauty.

 

The EFI philosophy is to preserve and reposition fat pads to improve cheek projection and create a natural, aesthetic lower eyelid-cheek junction. This is because advances in our understanding of facial aging over the past two decades inform us that the tired, aged look actually results from deflation and descent of fat pads, thinning of the skin and connective tissue, loss of bone, and stretching of tendons. The interplay between these factors impacts each individual differently so the surgical plan is carefully customized to address each anatomical area as needed.

 

Although eyelid surgery is minimally-invasive and safe, some patients may desire non-surgical treatment options. These range from skin tightening creams and chemical peels, to injectable botulinum toxin (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport) and filler, to laser resurfacing and radiofrequency tightening. Such non-surgical treatment options can be very effective with minimal downtime in suitable candidates.

Facial Rejuvenation

Over time, many of the anatomical structures of the face including bone, muscle, soft tissue, tendons, fascia, and skin become more stretched, shrunken, and descended to varying degrees. We call this process “the aging face”. Lifestyle factors (including quality of general health, nutrition, exercise, and sleep), as well as genetic factors, play an important role in determining which specific facial structures will change and to what degree at progressing life stages.

 

During youth, facial structures are typically well-suspended with clear, healthy skin, great projection and distribution of natural fat pockets, and absence of shadowing, wrinkles, or age spots. Unfortunately, over time, the bony structures start to shrink, tendons start to loosen, fat pads begin to deflate and or herniate forward under the skin in depressed locations, and the skin bears the brunt of wear-and-tear from the environment resulting in poor elasticity, decreased collagen, wrinkles, visible blood vessels, and discoloration.

 

In some people, the face can change dramatically over time from a “base up triangle” shape during youth to a “base down triangle” in the 5th decade of life or beyond. When considering which treatment option is ideal for you, we must evaluate individual factors such as general health, medications, lifestyle, desired results, and tolerable downtime. There are a host of treatment options available which vary in degree of invasiveness, duration, and depth of treatment. During your consultation, we will review all options available to meet your unique needs.

 

Minimally-invasive (non-surgical) procedures include skin care regimens, chemical peels, laser resurfacing, radiofrequency tightening, botulinum toxin injections, and filler injections. These interventions typically address more superficial skin-related aging changes and help decrease early deflation and descent of facial fat pads and other soft tissue structures.

 

A great non-surgical option to improve health and vitality of the entire face is the Radiant Eyes, Radiant Face™ Protocol 

 

Surgical options include resuspension of descended tissues with a minimally-invasive thread lift technique versus more permanent fixation surgery such as a full-face lift. Volumization options include fat-grafting and fat-transfer techniques. Specifically, structures such as the eyebrows/forehead, eyelids, mid-face, chin, and or neck can be operated upon to achieve harmonized facial contours that are natural and youthful.

 

Many patients benefit from a customized treatment plan that includes a combination of the various treatment options mentioned above.

Removal Of Eyelid And Facial Lesions

Eyelid and facial lesions (lumps & bumps) are commonly referred to the oculoplastic and facial plastic surgeons at Eye Face Institute. Most of these lesions are benign (i.e. not cancerous) but we also treat a host of more complex cancerous lesions and perform the reconstructive surgery that is often required.

 

Most facial lesions are removed in our procedure room under local anesthesia during a minimally-invasive, comfortable treatment session.

 

We also treat lesions that present themselves on more delicate and complex facial structures such as the eyelids, eye surface, eyelid margins, nose, ears, and lips. Some examples of common eyelid lesions include chalazia (styes), epidermal cysts, nevi, and papillomas.
