What Causes Eyelid Festoons?
Both festoons and lower eyelid bags can make us appear tired or sick, even when we feel great inside. While some people have a genetic predisposition to festoons, most develop them as a result of sun damage to the fragile skin in the lower eyelid region. The best way to improve festoons is to address the cause.
Your Face Sends the Message that People Hear Most Clearly
Wardrobe, hair, shoes, accessories. They all make a statement and play a part in telling the world who we are. But for all the attention we pay and money we spend on these items, none of them comes close to the impact that our faces have on what people think of us. Studies have shown that even our words don’t play as large a role in our communication as our facial expressions do, and the most important areas of our face are our eyes and our mouth.
Think about that for a minute, then think about the message those parts of your face communicate. No matter how youthful and high energy your actions are, if your face says “I’m tired,” that’s what people are going to hear and remember.

LASER EYELID SURGERY AND TREATMENT OPTIONS
Festoons or Malar Mounds
Drooping eyelid skin. Bags under the eyes. Puffy skin on the cheekbones. All are symptoms of a condition known as festoons, or malar mounds. A misdiagnosis often results in the wrong solution.
When a patient with festoons is treated with a lower eyelid blepharoplasty or facelift, their eyes can end up looking worse and the bags more noticeable than before. Festoons can be difficult to solve. In rare cases they can be large enough to block vision.
Dr. Scheiner offers a revolutionary laser skin resurfacing that provides remarkable results. “Festoons have been a difficult medical problem for many patients and their physicians over the years,” says Dr. Scheiner. “Traditional surgeries have had less-than-optimal results on this condition. Taking advantage of the latest advances in laser application and wound healing, it’s now possible to dramatically improve this difficult eyelid condition by applying this technique.”
Dr. Scheiner’s technique is now the gold standard for the treatment of festoons.
Upper and/or Lower Blepharoplasty or Laser Eyelid Surgery
We know you don’t want to look older than you are, and that’s exactly what sagging eyelids or puffy bags can do. They make you look tired and sad. To solve this problem, Dr. Scheiner offers a procedure called blepharoplasty — it’s also referred to as a “mini-facelift,” and it has quickly become one of the most popular and satisfying cosmetic procedures for treating drooping upper and/or lower eyelid skin.
Blepharoplasty or laser eyelid surgery can provide the following benefits:
- Eliminates tired-looking eyes
- Reduces lines and sags
- Helps you look younger
- Reduces puffy bags
- Eliminates unwanted excess skin
- Brightens your appearance
Blepharoplasty conservatively removes the fat and excess skin that causes sagging or puffiness. It’s one of the most effective ways to “open” your eyes, and can be done as a stand-alone procedure or in conjunction with a minimal-incision brow lift or laser skin resurfacing, depending on your needs.
Minimal-Incision Brow Lift
In many cases, looking exhausted is a result of heaviness above the upper lid, which is caused by a drooping eyebrow falling into the eyelid space. The result is that while you may feel energetic, healthy, and wide awake, others can’t see that.
When the brows fall, fixing the eyelids alone won’t fully open your eyes back up, but a procedure directly addressing the eyebrow will. There are a number of ways to raise a drooping eyebrow, but one of the best methods that yields the most satisfying results is the minimal-incision brow lift.
What to Expect
Every patient has different needs, conditions, and goals, and Dr. Scheiner understands this. He offers his patients a highly individualized approach, and that means that each patient’s experience will be slightly different. The information provided here is meant to give you a general idea of our process. Your experience may be different based upon the complexity of your particular situation.
Dr. Scheiner will meet with you to evaluate your condition and health. He will note your use of medications, medical history, and factors such as age, skin-type and ethnic background. He will pay special attention to your eyes, asking specific questions regarding your vision, including about your tear production and any use of contact lenses. Perhaps most importantly, he will work to understand your personal expectations. This initial conversation, with all its elements, is essential. It will provides Dr. Scheiner with the essential information he needs to help him advise you on the treatment he thinks will best accomplish your goals.
Once you and Dr. Scheiner have agreed on a treatment, he will walk you through the surgical technique and type of anesthesia he will use. He will take measurements of your facial features and take “before” pictures to help him plan your treatment. He will also show you “before” and “after” photos of patients who have had the same procedure so that you can see the results that others have gotten. You’ll also be shown an informative video that discusses the procedure(s) and which answers many commonly asked questions.
