Des Moines Plastic Surgery: Eyelid procedures with Dr. David Robbins of Des Moines, Iowa
More about Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Fat deposits that give the eyes shape and expression are held in place by thin sheets of ligaments and tendons. As you age, these sheets weaken, and fat deposits slide out, causing puffiness around the eyes that can make you look tired or even impair your vision.
Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty repositions these fat deposits and tightens or removes excess skin and fat, resulting in more youthful, more awake-looking eyes. Related procedures that may provide additional enhancement include forehead lift or browlift, facelift, nose reshaping, and laser skin rejuvenation. Dr. Robbins, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Des Moines, performs eyelid surgery and many other cosmetic and reconstructive procedures of the face, chin, neck and body.
We also offer fillers, Botox and other skin treatments that can be administered without surgery in our Renu Medispa.
At Des Moines Plastic Surgery we have a fully equipped, state-of-the-art in-office operating room that is fully accredited, safe, and private. The operating room is designed to perform only cosmetic surgery and Dr. Robbins is the only surgeon.

This procedure cannot correct crow's feet, dark circles under the eyes, or sagging eyebrows. In these instances, eyelid surgery performed with other procedures may produce better results. In some cases, patients whose vision is obstructed may have received a recommendation to have this surgery by their eye doctor or primary care doctor. In this case, the surgery may be covered by insurance.
There are many options for improving facial appearance, ranging from nonsurgical wrinkle fillers, Botox, and skin treatments, to surgeries that tighten the forehead, neck, mid-face and lower face. A discussion with Dr. Robbins in his comfortable Des Moines office will go a long way toward helping you determine the best path toward a more youthful face.
