Eyelid Procedures

When we speak with someone, we look at their eyes and they look at ours. People look at our eyes all the time. If the eyelid has excess skin, fatty deposits or sagging skin, it gives an aging appearance. This can make us self-conscious, and that can be made even worse if the eyelids are not equal on both sides. A drooping eyelid can also affect our vision and cause brow ache. An eyelid lift can change all of that, bringing both eyelids to the same level and taking years off our appearance.

Excess Eyelid Skin

Excess eyelid skin (Dermatochalasis) is commonly found in people over 50. It can affect the top and bottom eyelids. It is an easily treatable condition, with surgical and non-surgical options, depending on the severity. Surgery involves removing some of the excess skin to lift the eyelid. The surgeon will decide where to remove skin and how much to remove. Non-surgical options involve injectable dermal fillers.

Fatty Deposits

Fatty deposits can form around the eyelids. They are made up of natural fats, including cholesterol. They develop on the upper and lower eyelids, often symmetrically on both sides. While there may be cause, they can indicate high cholesterol, hypothyroidism or a liver condition. They appear as soft, flat and yellowish lumps, and can be easily removed with several treatment options including surgical excision, carbon dioxide and argon laser ablation, chemical cauterization, electrodessication and cryotherapy.

Eyelid Drooping

Eyelid drooping (Ptosis) can affect your vision. Several conditions can cause eyelid drooping, including diabetes, Horner syndrome, Myasthenia gravis, stroke or a tumor around or behind the eye. It can be present at birth, caused by the aging process or an injury. Usually eyelid drooping is caused by weakness in the muscle, nerve damage or looseness of the skin in the upper eyelid. An eye lift is often recommended for eyelid drooping and surgery is very successful in restoring function and vision in most cases.

If you are interested in having eyelid surgery or if you have any concerns about the appearance or function of your eyelids, contact Dr. Joshua D. Rosenberg today to schedule a consultation.

Karmita Avila

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
