EYELIDS

Eyelid Surgery Chicago Illinois

Eyelid Surgery in Chicago is offered by board certified plastic surgeon, Peter E. Johnson MD.

Your eyes can be the first place to show visible signs of aging.  This occurs because the skin around on the eyelid is quite thin and subject to the stress and strain of your daily routine.  Genetic factors can also influence premature hooding of the upper lids where fatty fullness within the lower lids causes a tired appearance well before your time.  Eyelid surgery, also known as Blepharoplasty, has potential benefits for both younger individuals, as well as older individuals, whose lids may have aged over time.

Eyelid rejuvenation at the Center for Aesthetic Surgery has taken on a graduated approach, much like Dr. Johnson’s approach to all facial rejuvenation.  Starting with non-surgical treatments, improvement can begin with light peels or the placement of fillers and structural fat grafts in the lower lids to improve skin tone, reduce visible fat deposits, and reduce a tired appearance.  For those with inherited fatty pockets within the lower lid a scar less or trans-conjunctival approach can provide a perfect solution for those who otherwise have normal skin tone and texture.  Full lower lid rejuvenation can correct fatty herniation, restore muscle tone, and correct skin laxity and wrinkles, and with our preferred method of adding structural fat grafts for restorative volume and fullness, lower lid blepharoplasty has become more revitalizing than ever before.

With our advanced techniques, including eyelid lifts, eyelid surgery in Chicago or blepharoplasty, most people will not realize that you’ve had eyelid surgery. What people will notice is that you appear younger and more vibrant.

Just as in the lower lid, upper lid blepharoplasty also benefits from a graduated approach matching our technique to specific problems.  Hooding skin in the upper lids is a common complaint with loss of a visible lash line.  Skin reduction alone often can provide visually striking results with a rapid recovery.  However, for some reduction of fatty heaviness within the lid is beneficial, or for some elevation of the side of the brow will produce a bright and beautiful appearance.  Structural fat grafting has also found its place in the upper lid when aging produces upper lid peaks and hollows. Dr. Johnson can provide fat with your own stem cells to rejuvenate and replenish thinned and tired upper lids and brow.

With the advancements in our understanding of facial aging, we are able to develop a treatment program specifically for you.
