Addressing eyelid concerns with surgeries such as blepharoplasty
- Posted on: Dec 15 2021
One of the most important and noticeable features of the face are the eyes. They can convey various expressions and help in contributing to the overall beauty of the facial structures. However, they can easily tarnish an otherwise beautiful appearance when patients are dealing with natural sagging of the brow, loose eyelids, or bags underneath the eyes. By working with a board-certified ophthalmologist such as Dr. Daniel S. Tresley of Northbrook, IL, patients have the ability to improve the appearance of the eyes, also known as the “windows to the soul.” Most patients will have eyelid surgery, known as blepharoplasty, performed for aesthetic purposes, or even for medical reasons if their eyelids are sagging to the point of impairing their overall field of vision.
What is blepharoplasty?
The blepharoplasty procedure refers to any aesthetic surgery that is performed on the eyes or eyelids. It may include the upper, lower, or both eyelids, and can even integrate underneath the eyes where bags and puffing may appear. Many of these problems contribute to an aged appearance, and can even cause patients to look as though they are tired or disinterested. By removing excess skin and tightening the tissues and muscles around the eyes, Dr. Daniel S. Tresley can make a dramatic improvement in one’s appearance—and often take years off of their aging face.
Who is a good candidate for the blepharoplasty procedure?
The best candidates for this treatment are individuals who are in good overall health and who have realistic expectations of what can be achieved with facial surgeries. During the initial consultation appointment, the surgeon will ask about the patient’s goals and determine if this or other facial surgeries are most appropriate for their needs.
