Many of the signs of facial aging are caused by the loss of tensile strength in the facial muscles; as these muscles grow weaker, they are less able to keep skin smooth. Over time, the delicate skin around our eyes tends to become loose and wrinkled. Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that rejuvenates eyelids that have begun to sag or droop. Excess skin around the eye can make the upper eyelid seem to disappear, which, in turn, can make us appear older and more tired than we actually feel. With blepharoplasty, Dr. Torminn can correct these problems and help restore a youthful appearance to the eyes and face. During the blepharoplasty procedure, Dr. Torminn places several tiny incisions along the natural folds of the eyelids. Through these incisions, he is able to completely reshape the eyelid by removing excess skin and fat and tightening the underlying musculature. Removing loose skin from around the eyes results in a healthier, more alert appearance, and can help you look and feel years younger.
