By assessing these areas, Dr. Lanfranchi will customize a lower eyelid lift to your needs and with your personal goals in mind. For example, excessive wrinkles may be treated with a fractional CO2 laser, while dermal fillers or fat transfers can be used to increase volume where fat deposits are lacking or to even out puffiness. In addition to this, underlying muscles can be tightened, and excess skin removed to rejuvenate the area.
With a special certification in Facial Plastic Surgery by the American Osteopathic Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Dr. Lanfranchi has extensive experience in blepharoplasty. Committed to providing safe, bespoke treatments for all his patients, Dr. Lanfranchi will discuss the range of possible treatments and outcomes with you prior to scheduling your procedure.
