Open up your eyes—and your world—with blepharoplasty
- Posted on: Nov 30 2020
For many years, patients who were suffering from drooping eyelids and bags under the eyes had no remedies available to them. These changes were just considered a natural part of the aging process. However, patients are now finding out the benefits of undergoing procedures such as blepharoplasty to address skin laxity and bags. At our facility, we also encourage patients who have been diagnosed with ptosis (drooping of the eyelid) that impacts their field of vision. Whether your need for eyelid surgery is cosmetic or medical, we can help!
What is blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is the medical term for eyelid surgery. It is a procedure that can be used on the upper, lower, or both eyelids to open them up and address sagging or bags. The surgery is commonly performed for patients who want a more youthful look, but can also be performed for medical reasons when the eyelids are impacting one’s field of vision. The procedure addresses the skin, tissues, and muscles of the eyes and can be performed in a way to avoid the appearance of scarring. With blepharoplasty performed by our board-certified ophthalmologist, patients can rest easy that their procedure is safe and natural-looking.
Who are the best candidates for eyelid surgery?
It is essential that patients understand that, with any cosmetic procedure, there are certain limitations. Patients who are interested in undergoing blepharoplasty should have realistic expectations as to what can be achieved. We offer before and after photos of past patients to help individuals visualize the final results of their own procedure. Our providers evaluate patients to ensure they are in good overall mental and physical health and are not taking any prescription medications that could interfere with a safe and effective surgical procedure. Patients are also educated on aftercare instructions and have a full understanding of the healing process and recovery time needed—including time off of work and social activities following their surgery.
