Droopy Upper Eyelids

Do you have droopy upper eyelids that blocking your vision? Do you have extra skin hanging over your eyelids and impacting your vision? Do you have to constantly squeeze your forehead muscle to lift your brows so you can see? Do you have trouble reading or driving a car because your lids droop? If the answer to any of these questions is yes then Dr. John McCann from the Center For Facial Appearances can help via droopy eyelid surgery.

Some patients have enough extra skin and fat in the upper eyelids or enough drooping of the upper eyelids that it blocks a portion of the peripheral vision. This can cause problems keeping the eyelids open when driving a car or when reading. In these cases, upper eyelid blepharoplasty surgery to remove the excess skin and fat or ptosis surgery to tighten the droopy eyelid muscle may improve the peripheral vision. If your eyelids are blocking your peripheral vision, the Center for Facial Appearances will work on your behalf to get the surgery authorized by your insurance company.

Ptosis surgery and upper eyelid blepharoplasty surgery are the most common reconstructive surgeries performed by Dr. John McCann. He performs thousands of these procedure each year and has been in practice for over 20 years.

It is also common for patients to have cosmetic lower eyelid surgery and cosmetic eyebrow or forehead lift surgery performed simultaneous with the reconstructive upper eyelid surgery. At the Center for Facial Appearances we find that patients who choose procedures that improve both form and function are the happiest with their post-operative result.
