Cosmetics

As we age, the elasticity of our skin weakens, causing lines, wrinkles, and other visible facial aging. Though wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process, we want you to look and feel like your best self. We are proud to offer a variety of cosmetic procedures at North Suburban Eye Associates to provide you with a range of options to choose from.

Our ophthalmologists Dr. Charles Barsam and Dr. Kimberly Mooney-McNulty provide our patients with cosmetic services in the Waltham and Wakefield offices.

Blepharoplasty

As we age, the skin on the eyelids stretches as the muscles supporting them begin to weaken. The excess fat can gather above or below your eyelids, causing bags, droopy eyelids, or sagging areas around the eyes. This not only affects the aesthetics of your face, but can even impact your vision by obstructing the full field of vision.

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that repairs these characteristics by removing the excess skin, muscles and fat from the upper or lower eyelids. Surgery can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids, or in some cases, both. Whether you’re having vision issues due to sagging eyelids or simply want to rejuvenate your eyes, blepharoplasty may be the procedure for you.
