Eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, is a simple procedure that corrects droopy upper lids and addresses under-eye bagginess and wrinkles. If you are considering options for making tired eyes look brighter, eyelid surgery may be the solution.
How Does Eyelid Surgery Work?
Blepharoplasty can be performed on both upper and lower eyelids. Upper lid surgery involves the removal of stretched skin and fat deposits that weigh lids down, making them look heavy. Lower lid blepharoplasty lessens fine lines around your eyes and corrects bagginess by removing excess skin and eliminating or repositioning fat deposits to create a more awake and alert appearance.
Who Is a Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid surgery is the most helpful for these common concerns:
• A fatigued appearance due to droopy upper lids
• Upper lids that look puffy or swollen
• Heavy, discolored bags under the eyes
• Fine lines and wrinkles under the lower lid
• Impaired vision due to upper lids that sag over the eyes
If you have any of these conditions, eyelid surgery can restore your energetic look, but as with any surgical procedure, it’s important that you’re in good general health and have no serious eye conditions. Certain pre-existing medical conditions, such as glaucoma and diabetes, may require extra care before surgery, or an alternative, non-surgical approach may be recommended.
What Results Can I Expect?
Each case is different, but of the many cosmetic procedures that can enhance your appearance, eyelid surgery is among the simplest and most impactful. Years can be wiped away just by eliminating the signs of premature aging around your eyes. You can expect to look more alert, engaged, and vibrant. The natural results will leave even those who know you wondering how you look so rested and refreshed.
