Has the skin around your eyelids lost its smooth firmness? Are you unhappy with the appearance of droopy skin around your eyes that cause you to appear tired or aged? Excess skin around the eyes is a common occurrence for many patients due to the natural aging process. As we get older, the skin continues to lose its firmness, and as a result the skin can stretch and become droopy. Blepharoplasty is a specialized treatment that is designed to correct the appearance of eyes for a young and refreshed look.
What is Blepharoplasty?
This is a personalized surgery that involves removing extra fat that often gets captured in the upper and under eye region and causes a droopy upper eye, and puffy under eye look. The procedure also involves removing the sagging and excess skin around eyes, and lifting it for a younger and alert appearance. However, blepharoplasty not only offers a younger appearance, but it can also correct other concerns that droopy eyelids can create, such as reduced vision. If you are someone who is experiencing any of the concerns mentioned, you could benefit from this advanced treatment.
A consultation is first performed in order to identify your specific concerns and aesthetic goals. The procedure is performed as an outpatient treatment. During treatment, the eyelids are first numed in order to ensure optimal patient comfort. A tiny incision is then made along the upper or lower eyelid depending on which is first. The excess fat is then removed or redistributed. The remaining excess skin is then tightened. The incision is gently closed, completing the procedure. There is necessary recovery following the procedure as there is with most surgeries. Ice packs should be used to reduce swelling and minimize discomfort. Your eyes will need to be properly cleaned and disinfected with specialized eye drops as they continue to heal. Following recovery, you can then enjoy your newly lifted and younger-looking eyes.
