Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift)
Your eyes are often the first things people notice about you, and are an important part of your overall appearance. Over time, the upper eyelid skin loses its elasticity and stretches, the fat bulges, the eyelid muscles weaken, and the eyelids droop. This condition detracts from your overall appearance and can make you look older or tired. The droopiness can irritate your eyelashes or even touch your glasses. And, in more severe cases, this excess skin may interfere with your field of vision and activities such as driving.
What is Blepharoplasty?
Eyelid surgery, or Blepharoplasty, is a procedure to remove this excess skin and bulging fat, and to tighten lax muscle of the upper eyelids. Blepharoplasty may restore a more youthful appearance and enhance your vision by the removal of the excessive skin. For an incredibly rejuvenated appearance, this may be just what you’re looking for.
Who is a Candidate for Blepharoplasty?
The best candidates are those who are healthy and well-motivated with realistic expectations. Some medical conditions may increase the risks in Blepharoplasty such as thyroid disease & patients who do not make sufficient tears to keep their eyes well lubricated.
