Eyes manifest the signs of aging very early and become the “window to our age.” We all have heard comments like, “Are you tired?” or “Are you angry?” Bags, puffiness, and sagging or wrinkling skin that cause the eyes to appear tired, sad or angry are corrected with this procedure. Eyelid surgery is designed to address a specific portion of the face that has begun to appear aged or unpleasant, producing a more refreshed appearance that allows the eyes to retain their place as the “window to the soul.”
What is Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a specialized procedure designed to improve the appearance of the eyes by removing a precise amount of excess skin, fat and muscle. Depending on your unique cosmetic objectives, eyelid surgery can:
- Eliminate loose or sagging skin that creates folds around the eyes.
- Smooth puffy upper eyelids and bags under the eyes.
- Rejuvenate eyes that constantly appear tired, even when you’ve had plenty of rest.
- Remove excess fatty deposits on the eyelids.
- Correct drooping lower eyelids.
- Eliminate excess skin and fine wrinkles to achieve a refreshed and youthful look.
It is possible to narrow the correction to either the upper or lower eyelids. Upper eyelid surgery is performed through an incision within the lid’s natural crease, while lower eyelid surgery is carried out through an incision inside the lower lid, eliminating any skin incision. The lower eyelid lift usually includes a laser resurfacing that eliminates the loose skin and the wrinkles around the eye and even the crow’s feet. Both methods are designed to conceal scars within the natural creases of the eyelid region. Eyelid skin is some of the thinnest skin, and the scars generally heal extremely well.
