When the years of aging begin to show in the form of lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin, our eyes can be one of the hardest areas affected. Eyelid drooping and puffiness below the eyes are common signs of aging that not only leave you looking older. But possibly even constantly sad or tired. Because of this, people are often self-conscious about their appearance and may notice different treatment by others who mistook you as drowsy or upset. Eyelid surgery can help.
Also known as blepharoplasty, it is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to remove the excess skin to revive a youthful appearance in your eyes. Our board certified plastic and cosmetic surgeons can help alleviate your problems with sagging eyelids and puffy bags utilizing special techniques learned through decades of combined experience.
Is Eyelid Surgery Right for Me?
When you come in for your blepharoplasty consultation, we will analyze your condition to determine whether you need both upper and lower eyelid surgery or just one.
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is typically used for the treatment of a drooping upper eyelid. Whether it is the result of aging or a congenital disorder such as Ptosis. It can also help clear any vision obstruction drooping of the upper eyelid can cause. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is more used to address discoloration or heavy bags that may have formed beneath your eyes over time.
Combining both upper and lower eyelid surgery will likely achieve the best overall results. You may choose to supplement your eyelid surgery with other facial procedures such as a facelift or brow lift to address other signs of aging.
