Sagging or droopy eyelids are a telltale sign of aging and can make an individual appear tired or older than their actual years. Eyelid surgery provides a younger, fresher look for many patients seeking to enhance their confidence.
Is Eyelid Surgery Right for You?
If drooping eyelid skin is giving you a tired appearance, consider refreshing your face with eyelid surgery. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can restore a rested, more youthful appearance. Ideal candidates are healthy non-smokers without serious eye conditions who have a positive outlook and a realistic expectation of what can be achieved through the surgery.
The Eyelid Surgery Procedure
Prior to the procedure, anesthesia will be administered for your comfort. An incision will be made along the natural crease of the upper eyelid to allow repositioning of fat tissue, tightening of muscle tissue and removal of any excess skin. With the lower eyelid, the incision is made just below the lash line. In some cases, a chemical peel may be used to remove any discoloration.
