Look More Refreshed and Alert with Eyelid Surgery
Do your eyes still express the inner vitality and radiance that you feel, or do they make you look sad, fatigued and older? Over time, our eyelids may droop, sag or become puffy because of factors such as aging, genetics and sun exposure. Allergies and sinus conditions can also take their toll, causing the eyes to swell and lead to eye rubbing.
Eyelid Surgery, or Blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure meant to make your eyes look more youthful, rested and alert. Removing bags under the eyes and alleviating upper eyelids that droop can have a dramatic effect on your appearance and the impressions you convey to others.
Depending on your needs, eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. Eyelid surgery is sometimes performed at the same time as a Brow Lift to rejuvenate the eyebrows and minimize creases on the forehead.
- Lower Eyelid Surgery – If you are seeking to correct puffiness and bags from beneath the eyes, you may be a good candidate for lower eyelid surgery. This form of blepharoplasty removes deposits of fat and possibly excess skin that cause the area below the eyes to develop a puffy or baggy look.
- Upper Eyelid Surgery – The goal of upper eyelid surgery is to reduce fat and skin that cause the upper eyelids to appear heavy, drooping or sagging. This blepharoplasty procedure usually involves removing fatty deposits, excess skin and muscle to improve the contour of the upper eyes and can even improve your vision.
Whether you are undergoing upper or lower blepharoplasty, the incisions are made to follow the natural contours of the skin so that the resulting scars are as inconspicuous as possible.
