As we all know, the eyes are a prominent facial feature. The tissue, muscle, fat, hair, and lashes all contribute to the wide array of expressions. Unfortunately, wrinkles and deep lines as well as puffiness under the lids develop as you age. In addition, exposure to the sun as well as hereditary factors contribute to the aging process, all resulting in changes of expression. In many cases, people may look fatigued, worn out, and older than their true age. Beyond possible visual impairment, these changes in your appearance can cause stress and anxiety.
Dr. Shepard are trained in several surgical procedures, such as blepharoplasty, forehead lift, and brow lift in order to eliminate the majority of these problems.
We can perform blepharoplasty to correct sagging eyelids, bags or pouches beneath the eyes, as well as excess folds around the eyes. This surgical procedure involves the removal of excess skin and fat on upper and lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty can be done under general anesthesia (with you asleep) or under IV sedation. Both are very comfortable options
