It is said that the eyes are the mirror of the soul, they reflect our emotions and inner being. They allow us to connect with our surroundings, stay safe, and help keep our minds sharp and alert. In some cases, these functions may be limited, and an eyelid procedure may be necessary.

The eyes are one of the most captivating features of the human body. They are essential for personal identification and for the communication of emotion. Over the years, periorbital aesthetics change with an excess of upper eyelid skin and fat and a stretching of the lower eyelid septum leading to dark bags and the “tear trough” deformity. These aging eyes can convey a tired, stressed, or even ill looking temperament.
A blepharoplasty is a cosmetic eyelid surgery aimed at returning the balance of the periorbital aesthetic contours. After a thorough evaluation of the quantity/quality of the eyelid skin/fat/muscle and the facial vectors, Dr. Malotky will be able to explain how certain in-office techniques may help remove excess skin and redistribute orbital fat to recreate a natural harmony that conveys both youth and experience.
Sometimes dysfunction of the eyelid structures can lead to droopy lids, uneven lids, obstructed vision, or all three! An assessment of muscle function and lid anatomy by Dr. Malotky can determine the best course of action to correct the deformity and regain your symmetrical appearance and clear field of vision. If you meet the criteria, your insurance may pay for the cost of your procedure.
