Perk Up with Eyelid Surgery
Westport | Fairfield CT
What is Eyelid Surgery?
Have you noticed that your eyelids have begun to droop and bags have formed under your eyes? Extra skin and creases around the eyes can impart a drowsy or severe look that can be harsh and uncomfortable. Fortunately, this is precisely what eyelid surgery in the Westport and Fairfield, CT area can correct, giving you a more youthful and relaxed look.
To make subtle improvements to the skin and tissue surrounding your eyes, you demand a skilled surgeon — one with the training and experience to determine which techniques will best give you the more youthful look you want to achieve…and restore your self-confidence. Trust Westport plastic surgeon Dr. Ellen Mahony, fully certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
The Benefits of Eyelid Surgery
With Dr. Mahony’s upper and lower eyelid surgery, excess skin and fat are removed and soft tissue repositioned, to enhance your natural contours and better reflect your true expression and emotion. Vision problems caused by overhang of the upper eyelids can also be corrected.
What Should I Expect at my Blepharoplasty Consultation?
Dr. Mahony will first sit down with you, evaluate your skin condition and facial structure, and tell you honestly if eyelid surgery is right for you. You’ll probably have questions, and Dr. Mahony is ready to listen to your concerns and take the time to give you direct, honest answers. Eyelid surgery is just one of the facial procedures she performs to help you look your best.
Your Eyelid Surgery with Complementary Treatments
For optimum results, you may want to ask Dr. Mahony about additional cosmetic procedures, such as a brow lift, face lift or thread lift. She also highly recommends considering fillers or ALMI to address the hollows underneath the eyes, a very common complaint! These are in-office procedures that can be used before or after your eyelid surgery.

ASK DR. MAHONY
Some of the changes we see early on in our aging process are similar to what we see in more advanced stages in our parents. In other words, they may be related to heredity and ethnicity. We refer to that “gulley” area as the tear trough. It marks the junction between the eye area and the nasal, cheek areas. In the absence of lax skin or bags of bulging fat, soft fillers like Juvederm can be used to soften that junction and conservatively rejuvenate the region. Oftentimes the darkness that is associated with this depression is a function of how light is reflected and when the depression is filled in, the darkness is far less.
During your initial consultation with Dr. Mahony in her Westport, CT offices you will discuss your general health and any medical conditions, allergies or previous surgeries she should be aware of. And then comes the fun part! You’ll tell her what your concerns are about your eyes, when these concerns started and what your expectations are for your eyelid surgery. She will spend some time with you in front of a mirror so that you can point out exactly what’s bothering you, and so she can assess the condition and elasticity of your skin and offer a personal recommendation for you.
