Eyelid surgery is often performed as a cosmetic procedure. Improving the appearance of the eyelids via skin ablation or repositioning is known as blepharoplasty. This procedure can help correct drooping eyelids, baggy lower lids, and wrinkled upper lids. Some individuals, especially those in their mature adult years, find that drooping lids not only detract from their appearance but also impair their ability to see properly.
Blepharoplasty can help individuals regain a more youthful, attentive posture. Our eyes tell others much about us, and if they signal tiredness, boredom, or annoyance, it’s usually because of drooping and wrinkling. Blepharoplasty is a rather simple procedure, and it doesn’t require a lot of recovery time after the surgery has been performed. Remember, this surgery can be customized for each individual.
Problems with Aging Eyelid Skin
Just as is the case with the cheeks, jawline, and neck, excess fat accumulation below the lids can make them puffy, baggy, or droopy. The eyelid skin is very thin to begin with, so if moisture retention in the skin decreases, fine wrinkle lines are often the result.
Excess fat deposits in the lower lids can make them look fat and baggy. This results in shadow lines that are unattractive. If one of the eyes is affected by drooping more than the other one, it can result in a very unbalanced look to the entire face. Blepharoplasty can correct all of these problems.
A Surgical Procedure
We consult with the client and ask about medical history as well as any past procedures that may have been performed on or around the eyes. We examine the lid skin closely to see whether the problem is being caused primarily by fat accumulation or poorly supported skin. We then design a customized surgical procedure and schedule a procedure date.
Blepharoplasty is a very simple cosmetic procedure, and the client enjoys a more youthful appearance for years afterward. It takes a long time for fat to build up and cause sagging, and skin that has been smoothed remains so for quite a while. However, results do vary from patient to patient.
