Eyelid surgery is a simple procedure that produces dramatic results. It removes winkles and bags under the eyes, and reduces hooding and excess skin by taking weight off the upper lid. During the procedure excess skin is excised and fat is repositioned to decrease puffiness. Incisions are completely hidden and placed so they will not change the overall shape of your eyes.

Dr. Struck often combines eyelid surgery with a brow lift. This allows less skin to be removed from the eyelid and leaves a more natural look. A chemical peel done several days after the procedure may reduce fine wrinkles of the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions about Eyelids

Q: Do you do facelifts, brow lifts, and eyelid lifts all at the same time?
A: Yes. Doing all three at once creates better harmony between all areas of the face, because no one area appears much younger than others that have not received treatment.
