Eyelids that droop or sag make you look tired or inattentive. This condition usually develops over time and is the result of fatty deposits beneath the skin. Poor support from subdermal tissue, combined with the effects of gravity, can also cause eyelid droop. Folds and creases increase the unnatural shadow effect and make you look older than you really are. Fortunately, you have options available to fix this problem. If you are dealing with drooping or sagging eyelids, cosmetic eyelid surgery can help.
An eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, can raise and smooth your upper and lower eyelids. An eyelid lift is a cosmetic procedure, but under certain circumstances, it can also be considered a corrective procedure. It’s similar to a facelift but treats a very localized area of the skin, namely the thin skin than covers your upper and lower lids.
Candidates for Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
Mature adults whose upper eyelids are sagging over the lashes or whose lower lids are becoming baggy and wrinkled are ideal candidates. Individuals considering eyelid surgery should be in overall good health. If skin conditions have been diagnosed in the past, these should be revealed to our surgeon during the consultation.
Cosmetic eyelid surgery is designed to smooth the skin on the lids themselves. If the upper lid is to be treated, Dr. Pacheco will check the thickness of the skin and determine whether the procedure will also lift up the brows slightly. An eyelid lift can be combined with a brow lift if the brows are uneven or are themselves sagging.
Recovery from Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
Downtime for an eyelid lift procedure varies from patient to patient, but Dr. Pacheco’s method of surgery typically allows patients to return home the day of the procedure. After the procedure is finished, we will send the client home with detailed instructions regarding healing.
