They say the eyes reflect your personality. If you want to make any changes to this area of your face, look to a facial plastic surgeon with the specialized training needed to care for the delicate skin, nerves and bones that surround the eyes.
Slightly different than droopy eyelids, this condition is often referred to as “baggy eyes.” An excess of skin in either the upper or lower eyelid can impact appearance and make one look tired or older than they are.
Also called ptosis, droopy eyelids can affect only one or both eyes. If the upper eyelid falls enough, the drooping eyelid can interfere with vision.
This includes any break to the bones around the eye socket. These delicate bones require careful repair to restore appearance and protect vision.
The eyelashes serve as a frame to your eyes. As they thin with aging or due to illness, it can affect your looks. We can prescribe Latisse® to improve the strength, length and fullness of your eyelashes.
Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery
Whether you have droopy or baggy eyelids or are unhappy with the appearance of your eyelids for another reason, a blepharoplasty can be done to upper lids, lower lids or both. This can restore a more youthful appearance and may also improve vision by removing excess skin.
Facial reanimation and repair
Whether caused by injury, trauma or medical condition and treatment, we can repair the eye area or restore a range of facial movements with very intricate surgeries or some nonsurgical options. Ohio State’s Leslie Kim, MD, is certified in these specialized procedures and is one of only a few facial paralysis experts in Ohio.
When the facial bones around the eye are broken, treatment requires careful planning and delicate technique. The facial plastic surgeons at Ohio State have specialized training and certification in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.
