For A Refreshed And Youthful Appearance!
Are your eyes projecting an appearance of you looking tired, sad, or older than you are and feel? Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure to address and correct drooping upper lids, remove puffy “bags” below your eyes, and tighten the lower eyelid skin. The procedure may also correct malar bags or festoons which are bags on the cheek/eye junction. A blepharoplasty removes excess skin, fat, and in some cases muscle, to create a more vibrant and youthful appearance which helps men and women to look more rested and alert.
For some people, drooping eyelid skin often can impair your vision. If this is the case, a blepharoplasty may be covered by insurance if it can be demonstrated that the droopy eyelid skin is substantially hindering a person’s peripheral vision.
Who Is A Candidate For Eyelid Surgery?
Dr. Sheila Bond advises patients that the primary reason for sagging eyelids is simply due to age. As everything droops, so do the eyelids. Most patients begin to see changes around age 35.
As the outer parts of the eyelid droop, the skin of the upper lids will look saggy, as if you had developed extra skin that was not there several years before. Removing this “extra” skin can dramatically improve the droopy look.
Another reason for tired-looking eyes is downward migrating eyelid fat. This fat layer is usually held back by a thin wall of fibrous tissue which can sag over time. This fat can bulge with age creating undereye “bags”. Blepharoplasty trims this excess fat and tightens the wall, restoring a youthful contour. It can also fill in the groove thereby smoothing the cheek/ eye junction.
If you feel that the eyes looking back at you in the mirror are old and tired-looking, or if people are asking if you had a good night’s sleep, an eyelid lift can give you dramatically younger-looking eyes.
Individual results may vary.
