Eyelid Surgery Westlake OHEyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Westlake & Cleveland, OH

As we age, our eyelids can betray our efforts to maintain a youthful and pleasant appearance. When the eyelid skin loses its firm, elastic quality, and the eyelid muscles weaken, the lids start to look droopy and puffy, giving the face a tired and sad appearance. Although many skin care products claim to treat this, surgery is the only effective solution. Dr. Joyesh Raj offers upper and lower eyelid surgery to correct the signs of aging in the eyelids and produce a more youthful and attractive appearance.

Our Skilled Eyelid Surgeon

The eyelids are extremely delicate and therefore require the skilled touch of a meticulous, detail-oriented surgeon. Dr. Raj is a renowned plastic surgeon with special expertise in facial rejuvenation procedures, including upper and lower eyelid surgery. He can be trusted to rejuvenate your lids and preserve your inherent beauty and expressions.

The mark of a truly excellent surgeon is the ability to tailor treatment to the individual needs of the patient. Dr. Raj recognizes that every patient has different needs and unique goals; he varies his surgical technique to produce the desired results. His sound clinical judgment is an asset as he works to obtain the best outcome for each case.

A Softer, More Pleasant Appearance

Eyelid surgery is designed to address a number of aesthetic concerns in the upper and lower eyelids. These concerns include the following:

  • Excess skin that obscures the natural folds of the eyelids
  • Excess skin that hangs over the upper lids, potentially impairing vision
  • Weakened eyelid muscles that cause drooping
  • Displaced fat deposits that look puffy
  • Fine wrinkles on the lower eyelids
  • Undereye bags and dark circles

By correcting these conditions, eyelid surgery has a positive overall effect on the face. When the eyes look wider, healthier and more awake, the entire face opens up. Another perk of eyelid surgery is that any scars from the procedure will be hidden in the natural creases of the eyelids — leaving no telltale sign of surgery!

Take a Closer Look at Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid-2There are several techniques Dr. Raj can use to improve the appearance of your eyelids. He will select the techniques he feels will produce the most favorable aesthetic outcomes in your case. When choosing his approach, Dr. Raj considers factors such as the amount of excess fat and skin in your eyelids, the condition of your eyelid muscles and your eyebrow position.

Upper eyelid surgery typically involves the removal of excess skin and fatty tissue, which eliminates puffiness and drooping. Modifications will be made to tighten lax muscles.
Lower eyelid surgery usually involves redistributing fat to eliminate puffiness and bulges, and tightening the lower eyelid skin.
If needed, eyelid surgery can be combined with an additional procedure, such as eyebrow lift or facelift, for comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Dr. Raj will make his professional recommendations for you during your pre-operative consultation.
