Premature facial aging after weight loss is seen in both men and women. The formation of jowls, sagging brows, and neck skin is common; to alleviate these problems, Dr. Behmand can perform a facelift, neck lift, or a combination of the two. Forehead wrinkles can be smoothed through a brow lift.
In cases where the skin over the eyelids has sagged so far that a brow lift alone is not helpful, Dr. Behmand may suggest the addition of blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery.
Performed at his San Francisco-area practice, the blepharoplasty procedure serves to remove excess skin directly from the eyelids to restore a clear line of vision and a more youthful, aesthetically pleasing appearance to the eyes. Since the fine-line scars are hidden within the crease of the eyelid, blepharoplasty patients are often very pleased with the aesthetic outcome of this surgery.
