Your eyes are one of the first things people notice about you, and if your eyelids are sagging or wrinkled, the impression will be one of tiredness or disinterest. Problems with drooping or wrinkled lids are common in mature adults, and the causes generally have to do with thinning skin, poor skin support, and a loss of collagen. A blepharoplasty procedure is the preferred treatment choice, and this type of eyelid surgery is rather simple. The results can be quite dramatic and give you a much more youthful, alert facial appearance.
Candidates for Eyelid Surgery
Many adults begin to experience drooping of the upper and/or lower eyelids. In some cases, this is caused by a relaxation of the forehead skin. This causes the upper lid to drop slightly and bulge near the eyelashes. It can even cause problems with eyesight. This problem is easily corrected with a blepharoplasty procedure.
If the lower lids are baggy, it’s likely due to a buildup of fatty tissue. Our skilled surgeon can quickly remove the fat through a procedure that is similar to a facelift, although this treatment is much smaller in scope. Ideal candidates will be in overall good health and have realistic expectations.
Combined with a Brow Lift
If sagging of the upper eyelids is being caused in part by drooping forehead skin, a brow lift may be performed in combination with blepharoplasty, depending on the situation. This raises the skin on the forehead and prevents the problem from recurring in the near future. During your consultation, our surgeon can discuss options of combining your eyelid surgery with other procedures for optimal results.
Recovery from Eyelid Surgery
This type of surgical procedure is rather simple, and recovery is generally relatively quick. The client will need to follow our team’s instructions regarding healing. The results of a blepharoplasty procedure can last for many years, depending on the situation.
