What is blepharoplasty?

The young beautiful woman takes off the medical maskThe eyes are an important feature of the human face, and many say that the eyes are the “windows to the soul.” They express emotion, give an overall sense of beauty, and balance out other facial structures and elements for aesthetic harmony. However, the eyes are also one of the first places in the face to show the natural signs of aging. This may include unwanted, noticeable sagging of the upper eyelid or the formation of fine lines and wrinkles around the edges. Due to these changes, patients may appear tired, older, or unhealthy. With plastic surgery procedures such as blepharoplasty, both men and women can address these issues and improve their confidence and appearance. 

What is blepharoplasty? 

Blepharoplasty is a procedure that is performed on the eyes. It may include the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both. It can be used to address sagging eyelids or even bags underneath the eyes. During an assessment with Dr. Daniel S. Tresley, patients of the Northbrook, IL area can find out if plastic surgery such as the blepharoplasty can help them appear more rested, alert, and youthful. 

Am I a candidate for blepharoplasty procedures? 

Many patients will ask Dr. Daniel S. Tresley if they are the ideal candidate for this surgery. The best candidates are individuals who are adult men and women and are in good overall health. They may be experiencing relaxed tissues around the eye that are contributing to an aged look. They may even have sagging of the upper eyelid that is impairing their field of vision, making the procedure a more medical treatment than an esthetic one. During a consultation, our team can evaluate an individual to find out if they can benefit from the blepharoplasty procedure.
