Dr. Westine sees men and women at all ages for eyelid surgery. A variety of factors such as genetics, certain medical conditions, sun exposure and aging can be the cause of heavy, crepey or drooping eyelids.
Blepharoplasty is one of the most common facial rejuvenation procedures performed. It is often the first aesthetic procedure for men and women in their 30s-40s. It generally involves the removal of excess skin and fat around the upper and or lower eyelids.
An eyelid lift or blepharoplasty is a safe, effective procedure performed to restore a more youthful appearance to the eyes and give a less fatigued look, while maintaining or even improving visual function.
Dr. Westine will evaluate every patient’s eyes for:
- any pre-existing asymmetry at rest and smiling
- skin and underlying fatty tissue
- skin elasticity
One of the most common concerns we hear from patients seeking eyelid surgery is that they do not want to look “startled” or “change their eye shape”. Eyelid surgery should restore a well-rested and natural balance to the eyes.
Dr. Westine may require a patient to see their ophthalmologist prior to having eyelid surgery, if you have a history of dry eyes or other ophthalmologic problems.
Dark circles that are caused from having thinning skin and bulging fat will be improved after lower lid surgery. Dark circles that are hereditary or caused by vascular problems, hyperpigmentation or allergies will require another form of treatment such as IPL lasers , topical hydroquinone or tear trough dermal fillers.

- Wrinkle Relaxing Injections (Botox or Dysport)
As with all facial plastic surgery, a thorough health assessment and realistic expectations are prerequisites. Your understanding of procedures, routines, and risks is essential to a successful final result. Following your consultation, we continue our discussion at the preoperative appointment.
The success and safety of your facelift depends very much on your complete candidness during your initial consultation. Dr. Westine will ask a number of questions about your health, desires, and lifestyle.
