Drooping eyelids and bags beneath the eyes develop as a result of the aging process in many people. For some people they can be unavoidable, given their hereditary makeup. Regardless of the causes, the results are the same. This sagging can make you look constantly tired or sad and can even interfere with your vision.
Fortunately, Dr. Richard D. Zeph can help restore your youthful gaze. Through an innovative proven procedure called blepharoplasty, he can remove the excess skin and fat from your upper and lower eyelids. And recovery time is quick, with most patients retiring to their normal activities in one week.
Upper Eyelid Surgery
This procedure can correct drooping or sagging eyelids and give you the refreshed, youthful gaze you desire. Dr. Zeph’s technique involves removing a precise amount of excess skin and fat around the existing eyelid fold.
Lower Eyelid Surgery
This procedure can correct excess or unsightly lower eyelid skin and puffy pouches of fat in the lower lids, resulting in a smoother, more rested look to the lower eyelid. It can also improve the shape of the lower eyelid if it sags downward.
Functional Eyelid Surgery
While insurance does not cover eyelid surgery that is done purely for cosmetic reasons, it may be reimbursable in whole—or in part—for functional purposes. This might include surgery to correct upper eyelids that droop and obstruct your field of vision.
