Having to deal with baggy eyelids can have a negative effect on your overall look and beauty. This is why blepharoplasty is becoming a more well-known solution to baggy eyes. But how can you tell if you are the right candidate for the procedure and if the procedure itself will be able to produce positive, and immediate results? At Coastal Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, we will help you decide if you are indeed the proper candidate for blepharoplasty as well as help you decide on taking the next steps.
What Is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty, which is also known as eyelid surgery, specializes in correcting, changing, removing, or altering any and all deformities or conditions pertaining to eyelids. The primary purpose of blepharoplasty is to make one’s eyelids look more aesthetically and physically pleasant, which is why the practice mostly pertains to cosmetic surgery.
But at what age and at what appropriate time can an individual undergo blepharoplasty? In the next section, we will help you answer some of the questions and set you on the right path as well.
Who Is An Ideal Candidate For Blepharoplasty?
To start things off, baggy eyelids usually start to come up in those who are in their mid-thirties. However, if the condition runs in your family, it would be a better idea if you underwent treatment sooner. Going off from that, it’s also advised that individuals should be in good health before having a blepharoplasty. You also want to think of any potential goals like, “Why do I want to improve the condition of my eyelids?” This is why consulting with one of our qualified specialists first is a good idea.
Other Questions To Consider
Although you might consider yourself to have baggy eyebrows, there are a few specifics to keep in mind. For instance, you could be considered a good candidate if:
- You have loose skin that hides the fold of upper eyelids
- Loose upper eyelid skin causes impaired vision
- You have large bags underneath your eyes and/or dark circles
- You have realistic expectations of improving the condition of your eyelids
Like we have stated earlier, it’s best that you are in good health too. For instance, you can be considered a good candidate if you are not a smoker, and a person who tries to lead a healthy lifestyle. It’s also important to keep in mind that your eyes don’t suffer from any infections or any other conditions.
