Dr. Shermak has helped many Baltimore blepharoplasty patients to achieve a more well-rested and youthful appearance through the treatment of the upper and lower eyelids.
The eyelids are one of the first facial features to give away your age. As they age, some people accumulate crepey skin in the upper lid, making it difficult to apply makeup or to actually have a full field of vision. Some just inherit this condition from their parents and present for correction at a relatively young age.
Blepharoplasty helps correct loose, excess skin of the upper eyelid and laxity and puffiness of the lower lid that results in a tired, sad or angry appearance. Incisions are hidden or placed within natural creases: the upper eyelid incision falls within the upper eyelid crease and the lower lid incision is placed right under the lash line.
The eyelid skin is the thinnest skin in the body and heals very quickly. The objective is a smoother, rejuvenated eye and a more refreshed, alert facial expression. Blepharoplasty surgery can be limited to just the upper lid, just the lower lid, or both the upper and lower lid.
