Appear refreshed and rested with the blepharoplasty surgery
- Posted on: Jun 30 2021
Are your eyes showing your age? Do you find yourself with crow’s feet around the edges of the eyes, sagging eyelids, or bags underneath the eyes? If you want to look more refreshed and youthful, it may be time to speak to a board-certified ophthalmologist about the advantages of the blepharoplasty procedure.
What is blepharoplasty?
The word “blepharoplasty” is a medical term regarding eyelid surgery. It has evolved significantly over the course of time, helping patients maintain a youthful appearance regardless of their physical age. During this procedure, a doctor will remove excess skin of the eyelids to address sagging eyelids, wrinkles, and even hollowed eyes. The procedure is done with precision care as the skin of the eyes and eyelids is incredibly delicate and fragile. However, after the surgery has been performed, most patients will find that they appear well-rested, relaxed, and younger than before!
Some patients are uneasy about undergoing surgical procedures. Those with mild to moderate signs of aging around the eyes may instead want to ask about certain types of cosmetic injectables that are designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, once the eyelids begin sagging, plastic surgery is often the only option available to address these imperfections.
What about scarring?
Any surgical procedure comes with a risk of scarring. While scarring on other parts of the body may not be of great concern as these portions might be covered with clothing most of the time, it can be difficult to hide scarring on the face. Dr. Daniel S. Tresley performs the procedure with incisions in the folds of the eyelids, which minimizes their appearance.
