The eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is one of the most common facial cosmetic plastic surgery procedures performed in both men and women. Results of this procedure are both immediate and powerful.
Genetics or the natural aging process produces wrinkles, lines, and puffiness. These contribute to a tired, depressed or aged appearance. Blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) surgery is a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure that removes excess skin and muscle from both the upper and lower eyelids.
Underlying fatty tissue that causes bagginess can be selectively removed or re-positioned. Eyelid surgery can improve drooping skin, sagging eyelids and puffiness that make you appear older or tired.
The result of this procedure is a smoother and more-taut appearance. Blepharoplasty can also reduce the appearance of dark lower eyelid circles. Blepharoplasty can also help improve vision in older patients who have hooding of their upper eyelids. Eyelid surgery can also add an upper eyelid crease to the Asian eyelid.
A well-done eyelid lift should leave you looking rested with a very natural youthful appearance. The shape of your eyes should not change with this procedure. You will look younger, alert and refreshed. Upper and lower eyelid procedures may be done separately or together.
Cosmetic eyelid surgery is unique for each patient. This information will give you a basic understanding of the eyelid surgery procedure. However, all patients are different. An individualized consultation is needed to select the cosmetic eyelid procedure most is most appropriate for you.
