Our eyes are the looking glass and the skin around the eyes can tell the story of everything we’ve experienced in our lives, from the deep stresses of living to the happiness we’ve experienced. Our eyes also give away our age if we’re not careful and take preventative measures to do so. The problem is that the skin around the eyes, neck, face and décolletage areas are constantly exposed to the sun. The heat provided by UVA and UVB rays contributes to the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibers; this breakdown of collagen and elastin causes the skin to sag.
With sagging skin around the face and neck, this empty space underneath the muscle underlying the skin can fill with an excess of fatty tissues. These fatty tissues can grow under muscles and pull the skin down further creating this droop in the top eyelid, in the eyebrow area, and the lower lid. This drooping and sagging of the skin can be remedied at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts, under the artistic cosmetic work by Dr. Husam Elias. We offer this surgical procedure to help with the many issues brought on by this drooping of the upper and lower eyelids.
