Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) is the most common procedure on eyelids, recommended for those, who want to rejuvenate their eyes and the entire face. Excessive skin around the eyes visibly ages the face. A tired and sad expression of the eyes can also be reduced by blepharoplasty. After the correction, eyes are not different or unusual; on the contrary, they look more youthful and restless.
The eyes are the first attribute we notice when we meet someone new. When you look at yourself in the mirror, you are probably more acutely aware of any subtle changes around your eyes more so than any other part of your face. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can address your upper lids, lower lids, or both.
Eyelid surgery can correct the appearance of aging eyes, restoring the youthful beauty to the focal point of your face.
The benefits of eyelid surgery include:
Eyelid surgery can also be combined with botox to correct fine lines, wrinkles, and crows’ feet around your eyes for a more complete look.
During eyelid surgery, excess skin is removed and fat is repositioned. The repositioning of fat can simultaneously remove puffiness and fill hollows, restoring the youthful contours of your eyelids and correcting dark circles. Removing the excess skin and tightening muscles will smooth wrinkles and folds.
In the upper eyelids we often see drooping, sagging, and sometimes misplaced pockets of fat, distorting the natural contours and creating wrinkles and folds of skin where your eyelid was once smooth and plump. We correct this by removing an ellipse of skin and sometimes excess fat. The incision is made in the natural crease of your eyelid so there is no visible scar. The results of upper eyelid surgery are sometimes enhanced when combined with a forehead lift since drooping eyelids can originate from a heavy or drooping brow.
In the lower lid we address bags, dark circles, and loose or wrinkled skin. We remove excess skin, remove or reposition fat, and we can tighten the muscles if needed.
In general, good candidates for eyelid surgery include:
Remember that the eyelids are part of the face. The appearance of a drooping upper lid may also be due to relaxation of the forehead skin and eyebrow. Sometimes a drooping eyelid is caused by stretching of one of the upper eyelid muscles, the levator.
