As we age, the delicate skin around the eyes may begin to sag and wrinkle. Excess skin and fat under the eyes can cause puffiness and give you a tired, aged appearance. In more extreme cases, sagging upper eyelid skin can even impair vision. As a board-certified, fellowship trained ophthalmologist with extensive training and experience in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Kimberly Cockerham has been performing cosmetic and functional eyelid surgery for over two decades. She customizes each treatment to reflect each patient’s unique anatomy, skin condition, aesthetic concerns and lifestyle— an approach that consistently delivers excellent results for her patients.
Dr. Cockerham performs both upper and lower eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) and can also sculpt or redrape the fat from puffy upper and lower eyelids for a more rested and youthful appearance.
Dr. Cockerham can also perform an eyebrow lift or mid face lift to augment the eyelid surgery if desired. Dr. Cockerham is adept at delivering results that appear completely natural. After surgery, her patients look like more youthful and attractive versions of themselves—not like those who have had “work done.” Additionally, lash and eyebrow hair regrowth and transplantations are possible, and laser surgery can be performed in conjunction with laser skin resurfacing for even more dramatic improvement.
