Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can quickly and painlessly improve the appearance of your upper or lower eyelids. An eyelid lift is popular among both cosmetic and medical patients. Sagging, loose skin around the eyes can lead to functional issues with your vision, or may simply be cosmetically bothersome to patients.
While many people are born with sagging upper eyelid skin, the condition can also develop over time and with age. This is especially true for sagging lower eyelids. The eyes are such prominent features of the face, that sagging eyelid skin can easily make even young people look much older or more tired than they are.
Upper blepharoplasty is performed by making small incisions in the skin to allow for the removal of fat and excess tissues. A fine stitch is then used to create a natural crease in the eyelid. Lower blepharoplasty may involve incisions either directly below the lash line or on the inside of the eyelid.
While some bruising and swelling will occur, most patients are able to resume normal activities after just a few days. Contact our office to learn more today.
