Easily one of the most common areas of concern among Dr. Hause’s patients is the eye area. As we age, wrinkles and crow’s feet around the eyes form, the skin on the eyelids begins to sag, and dark circles or “bags” form underneath the eyes. If you are bothered by any of these issues, Dr. Hause is here to help. The skilled Sacramento plastic surgeon offers several options to brighten the eyes and create a more relaxed facial appearance.
Eyelid surgery can treat the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. Upper eyelid surgery removes excess fat and drooping skin on the eyelids. Following the procedure, the eyes appear brighter and even larger. Lower eyelid surgery also trims excess skin and repositions fatty tissue on the area underneath the lower eyelids, minimizing the appearance of unsightly under-eye circles and wrinkles. The result of eyelid surgery is a vibrant, well-rested appearance. Eyelid surgery can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures including facelift.
Have you been told you look upset or angry, even when you’re not? A “furrowed” brow or sagging skin and fat on the brow can often cause someone to look older and even unapproachable. Brow lift treats the deep creases across the forehead and lifts skin on the forehead that appears to be falling. And because sagging skin on the brow can cause the eyelids to appear hooded, brow lift can soften the appearance of the eyes.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
For patients who are not ready to undergo a surgical procedure, laser skin resurfacing may be a suitable alternative. Laser skin resurfacing is powerful enough to improve an array of skin concerns yet gentle enough to treat the delicate area around the eyes. The procedure uses pulsating beams of focused laser light to tighten and smooth out wrinkled skin. Laser skin resurfacing is also a great option to maintain the rejuvenating results of eyelid surgery, brow lift or other facial rejuvenation procedures.
