When it has come to the point that you are considering using or do use tape as part of your morning ritual for your eyes, it is due time that you come in for a visit with Dr. Capuano. There are several options which can be used to treat sagging eyelids or eyelids that appear to be hanging over your eyelashes. From the least invasive measure you can try Botox, if that doesn't work you could move onto skin tightening options like chemical peels or eye tightening laser procedures. The easy and surprisingly affordable option is a blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty's are one of the most common procedures performed in our office. Yes, I said in our office. Believe it or not, that dreaded sag is nothing but a very simple skin excision. Of course, one always has the option of taking a trip to the operating room if you are as squeamish as myself but when done in an office setting you are sedated and made very comfortable. We have countless patients who describe the experience as "surprisingly quick, with minimal discomfort". The other surgical option would be a forehead lift, all of these things are a discussion best served when conferring with Dr. Capuano. He will perform the necessary steps and ask specific details that will provide you with optimal results. Call our office for a consultation at your convenience 201-820-5280.
