Do you feel like your eyes are aging you? Are your lids beginning to droop causing your eyes to look hooded? Do you look tired all the time – even when you are rested? Blepharoplasty may offer the answers for a more youthful eye area.

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that repairs droopy eyelids. As we age, our eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. Surgery to correct this can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids, or both.

Whether you want to improve your appearance, or you are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids – eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the area surrounding your eyes.

Some things that eyelid surgery can correct include:

  • Bags under the eyes
  • Fatty deposits that appear as puffiness on the eyelids
  • Loose or sagging skin on the eyelids that sometimes causes vision problems
  • Drooping lower eyelids that reveal white below the iris
  • Excess skin and wrinkles that appear below the lower lids

While this surgery is usually done for cosmetic reasons, it is also an effective way to improve sight in older people whose sagging upper eyelids get in the way of their vision.

Eyelid surgery won’t get rid of dark circles under the eyes, crow’s feet or other facial wrinkles. It is often done along with other procedures such as laser resurfacing, filler injections, or forehead lifts.

The best candidates for an eye lift are people who are in good health and who have a realistic expectation of what they want. Most are 35 years or older, but if baggy or droopy eyelids run in your family, you may decide to have the procedure at an earlier age.

Dr. McLain will discuss all of this in your consultation. He will help you decide what you want and what you can expect from your eyelid surgery. He will also tell you what you will need to do pre-op and after your surgery.

After eyelid surgery, expect to stay home from work and limit your activities for several days while your eyelids heal. You may also experience dry eyes for a few days.

If you are considering eyelid surgery, contact Dr. McLain’s office to schedule your consultation, today.

Brow Lift

Are you tired of looking tired even when you’re rested? Aging causes many changes in the way we look, including sagging skin on the face. If you want a more youthful and restful look, you may be a candidate for a Brow Lift.

The Brow Lift, also known as a forehead lift, raises the eyebrows to decrease the appearance of wrinkles and frown lines and to lift sagging skin. You may choose to have a brow lift if you have a low, sagging brow or brow asymmetry.

A brow lift can provide some of the following benefits:

  • Improve frown lines, the vertical creases that develop between the eyebrows
  • Reduce wrinkle lines that develop horizontally across the forehead
  • Reduce wrinkles that occur on the bridge of the nose, between the eyes
  • Raise sagging brows that are hooding the upper eyelids
  • Place the eyebrows in an alert and youthful position

Dr. McLain will discuss with you what you can expect from your brow lift. He will examine you to ensure that you have the best outcome. He will also tell you what to do before surgery, and what aftercare will be required once you are at home and healing.

Brow lift techniques vary depending on your desired results. Dr. McLain will discuss with you the technique he will use for your surgery. The procedure will be done in a surgical facility and you will be placed under general anesthesia.

You will be given specific instructions on how to care for your incisions. In the first few days after your brow lift:

  • Rest with your head elevated and take pain medication as prescribed by Dr. McLain
  • Apply cold compresses to relieve swelling
  • Avoid any activity that causes excessive pressure or motion

Depending on your needs and desires, Dr. McLain may also perform other procedures along with your brow lift. These may include upper and lower eyelid surgery, a facelift and skin resurfacing.

If you are ready for a more youthful appearance, call Dr. McLain’s office and make an appointment for your consultation, today.

  • Fewer lines and wrinkles
  • More even skin tone and color
  • Dazzling complexion

The process involves skimming damaged and dead skin cells and hair from the face for creating a radiant and smooth look. Your cosmetic surgeon will make use of a high-precision exfoliating blade for performing this noninvasive procedure.

Besides skin renewal, dermaplaning can also help towards reducing the effect of unsightly pockmarks and acne related scarring. Your treatment expert will scrape away dead cells, debris, and scar tissue from the topmost skin layers. This helps in promoting the generation of new collagen fibers within deeper layers of the skin for long-term skin enhancement.

Laser Hair Removal

The treatment is most effective in the growing stages of hair. Your hair grows in cycles. Patients may need 4 – 6 sessions of the procedure for maximum results.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is an ideal treatment for you if you currently deal with irritated, dry, or rough skin. The treatment makes use of a brush for polishing the topmost layer of skin that contains dead skin cells. Microdermabrasion can help in increasing blood flow for collagen stimulation. This eventually results in stronger skin and improved elasticity.

You can improve minor irregularities with this, such as sun damage. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Landon D. McLain receives patients from Huntsville, Madison, Florence, Decatur, Scottsboro, Cullman, Athens, Alabama, and nearby areas for innovative and advanced med spa services, including facial and skin rejuvenation procedures.
