Lifting the eyelids is a surgical procedure known as blepharoplasty. Eyelid surgery is performed as a means to reduce wrinkling and folding in the upper or lower lids. Lid sagging is a common problem experienced by older adults, but it can affect younger people as well. Puffiness, dark-appearing skin due to creasing, and tiny wrinkles on the lid skin can be corrected with this type of cosmetic procedure.
No one wants to look old and tired, but sagging lid skin and the appearance of fine wrinkles on the lid surface can certainly make you look bored, disinterested, and unhealthy. We can help you with this problem. Below, we give a simple overview of the treatment, describe what it corrects, and explain how it’s performed.
What Will It Treat?
Fatty deposits below the lid skin begin to show as puffiness. This excess fat can be removed or redistributed during eyelid surgery. A sagging skin on the upper lid can drop the lash line downward and can even affect a person’s ability to see properly. Blepharoplasty can correct this drooping.
The lower lid tends to wrinkle more than the upper lid, especially after the individual is past the age of 40 years. The appearance can be one of excess skin. Indeed, some of this skin can be ablated during eyelid surgery, and the result is a smoother skin surface and a more attentive, awakened posture.
Before and during Treatment
If you are in good overall health and have no diagnosed severe eye problems, you’re probably a good candidate for this type of corrective skin surgery. During the consultation, we will look at your lid skin and determine the amount of skin ablation and fat removal required for a positive result.
You’ll wear bandages for a few days afterward, and you may be given antibiotics. When the bandages come off, you’ll see a younger-appearing, wide-awake individual in the mirror. This cosmetic fix for drooping or sagging lids can produce results that last for up to a decade.
