Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery


Many people feel that they look tired and older than their years but are unable to pinpoint the reasons why. Usually, drooping or sagging eyelids play a large role in creating that worn-out appearance. This excess skin is more than just unattractive, it can actually impair your vision. With upper and lower eyelid surgery, called blepharoplasty, in Harrisburg, PA, Dr. Scott M. Gayner can help you appear awake and refreshed by removing drooping skin, reducing puffiness, and minimizing bags under the eyes.

The Procedure

Blepharoplasty may be performed right in Dr. Gayner's office under local anesthesia. This procedure requires only small incisions that will be located in the creases around the eye. Any scars will be well hidden. During the blepharoplasty procedure, Dr. Gayner will remove excess skin, tighten muscles and tissue, and redistribute or remove excess fat.

If you are also concerned about dark circles, fine lines, wrinkles around the eyes, and sagging eyebrows, you may want to consider other procedures performed by Dr. Gayner such as laser skin rejuvenation, a face lift, or BOTOX® Cosmetic in Harrisburg.




Recovery and Results

A certain degree of swelling and bruising after surgery is normal. Patients experience minimal, if any, pain. When recovery from eyelid surgery in Pennsylvania is complete, eyes will appear younger and more alert, skin will be smoother, and vision may be improved.

Eyelid Surgery for Men

Men and women struggle equally with the effects aging has on the tissues around the eyes. Dr. Gayner takes a patient's gender into account during any procedure and uses specific techniques to enhance femininity or masculinity. Droopy eyelids and bags under the eyes can make men look harsh or aged beyond their years. By rejuvenating the eye area with blepharoplasty, men can restore defined contours and youthful vitality.
