Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that improves the appearance of the eyelid skin. Many adults experience age-related wrinkling of the upper lid, sagging of the lower lid skin, and a reshaping of the lid contours. These problems can negatively affect the overall appearance of the face. An unbalanced look, a tired expression, and even difficulty seeing properly can be treated via an eyelid lift.
The procedure is similar to a facelift but is performed on a much smaller scale. Plus, our surgeon can utilize state-of-the-art laser techniques during the surgery in order to ensure optimal precision and the least amount of invasiveness. In some cases, excess fat and skin is removed, and the result is a smoother surface to the lid skin. We encourage you to read over the following information so that you’ll get a good idea of what the procedure involves and also learn about the many benefits.
What the Surgery Corrects
Blepharoplasty can really change the overall look of the eyes for the better. Specifically, the surgery can tighten loose or sagging skin on the upper eyelid, treat fat deposits that cause a bumping or folding of the eyelid skin, and remove bags that form on the lower lid. All of this is accomplished by making tiny incisions via a laser along natural crease lines and repositioning or removing a bit of fat and muscle tissue.
Many individuals begin to display a tired or unhealthy look that’s caused by darkening of the lid skin. This shadowing effect can be treated with eyelid surgery. If the eyelashes are drooping and covering too much of the eyeball, they can be raised slightly to produce a more attentive posture. Some individuals feel that too much of their eyeball white is showing because of sagging lower lids, and this problem can also be treated via blepharoplasty.
We will consult with you and examine your eyelid skin closely. We can design a customized lid lift procedure that will improve any problems you’re experiencing with your eyelid skin. We’ll also give you an information packet so that you can prepare for the surgery.
Of course, the exact details of blepharoplasty vary from patient to patient. The result of the surgery is a more balanced look to the eyes, better skin tone because of the lack of shadowing caused by droopy skin, and smoother upper lid skin. The results of the surgery can last for years.
