Eyelid Surgery

Do you always look tired even if you don’t feel that way? Are your eyelids causing functional problems with your vision? Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Frederick K. Park performs upper and lower eyelid surgery in Rocky Mount to help women and men from areas like Greenville, Wilson, Weldon, and Murfreesboro, NC, rejuvenate their appearance and enhance their quality of life.

Dr. Park’s Approach:

“Eyelid surgery is one of the most common procedures I perform. It is delicate, precise and I believe it is the single most effective area to rejuvenate when trying to create a more youthful appearance of the face.

The eyes have many classic aging changes. Patients note that their upper eyelid skin is too abundant and hangs too low, that they appear tired from lower eyelid dark circles and bags, that their eyebrows seem to have fallen, and that fine wrinkling has taken over their eyelid skin.

The good news is that there are excellent techniques to reverse these changes. The skin can be removed and tightened, fat can be removed and repositioned, wrinkles can be lasered smooth, and the brows can be lifted.

The fear that some patients have that they will look “surprised” after eyelid surgery can be easily avoided with good, conservative techniques.

Rejuvenate your eyes and you are on your way to a more youthful appearance.” 

What Is Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery, technically called blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure Dr. Park performs to improve the appearance of the eyelids. Surgery can be performed on either the upper or lower lids, or both.

Specifically, eyelid surgery can treat:

  • Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing peripheral vision
  • Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Drooping lower eyelids that reveal white below the iris
  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid

Many patients choose a more complete facial rejuvenation by combining eyelid surgery with a brow lift and/or facelift.
