Your eyes are one of the first things people notice when they meet you for the first time. If a problem with your eyelids is hiding or obscuring your eyes, there is a procedure available to correct the problem. Whether you are not happy with what the aging process has done to your eyelids or you have droopy eyelids due to some other reason, blepharoplasty could be an option to consider. Surgeons at Coastal Dermatology and Plastic Surgery have helped many patients–both women and men–look and feel better about themselves using this procedure.
This procedure can do a lot to improve appearance and self-esteem, but also can help with your health. In some cases, peripheral vision has even been improved. Keep reading to find out more about the condition and if this treatment is right for you.
What Is Blepharoplasty?
Muscles that support the eyelid weaken as you age. Excess fat will then gather either above or below your eyelids resulting in a sagging effect. Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to improve the appearance of either the upper, lower, or both eyelid areas. Bags under the eyes, sagging skin or moderate to severe visible signs of aging can all be improved by this surgery.
Reasons to Consider Blepharoplasty
- Improve appearance by removing loose, saggy skin
- Reduce bags under the eyes
- Remove saggy skin and fine lines around the lower eyelid
- Improve vision impaired by saggy skin around eyelids
- Yields a firmer, reinvigorated area around the eyes
What to Expect During The Procedure
During the surgery, the skin, tissues, and muscles around the eye areas will be reshaped and re-positioned. Depending on the goals of the procedure, saggy skin will be removed and muscle and tissues will be smoothed and tightened resulting in a more youthful look. The recovery period will vary by patient but is generally short. The professional staff at Coastal Dermatology and Plastic Surgery will monitor your results and make sure you’re satisfied with your blepharoplasty.
