Eyelift Surgery/Forehead Lift
Also called a blepharoplasty, this surgical procedure can be performed on either the upper or lower eyelids, or both. A blepharoplasty is needed when the loose or sagging skin creates folds disturbing the natural contour of the upper eyelid or begins to impair vision. This surgery can also be performed to remove excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids, remove the bags that form underneath the eye, or the drooping lower eyelids that reveal white below the iris. It can also remove excess skin and fine wrinkles in the lower eyelid. Eyelid surgery can revitalize tired, droopy eyes to reveal a rejuvenated appearance. At your consultation Dr. Krummen will address your personal goals, your health history, as well as everything you can expect during surgery and recovery afterwards.
Those struggling with deep forehead wrinkles that leave you looking tired, angry or “too serious” can benefit from a browlift (also called a forehead lift.) A browlift can often be achieved using Botox and fillers, without actual surgery. A surgical browlift can help in lifting up sagging eyebrows that are hooding the upper eyelids, bringing the eye brows in a more alert and youthful position. This is most often combined with eyelift surgery. This is a great option for someone who feels they are not yet ready for an entire facelift but would benefit from a reduction in wrinkles that have developed in the uppermost part of the face. At your consultation Dr. Krummen will address your personal goals and determine whether a surgical or non-surgical browlift may be best to achieve your desired outcome.
