None of this mind getting older, we would just like to not look it. The eyes, in particular, are a part of the face that tend to show age. We lose volume under the eyes, the skin stretches in both the upper and lower lid areas, the brow this ends, and the skin pins and becomes crepey. This can lead to problems like undereye bags and heavy upper eyelids. These changes can make the face appear not only older but less friendly. Blepharoplasty is an excellent way to reverse these changes.
Blepharoplasty is the term that we use to describe eyelid remodeling. The intent of the procedure is to rejuvenate the upper or lower eyelids. It does not eliminate all lines and wrinkles around the eyes, such as crow’s feet. What upper or lower blepharoplasty does is return the area around the eyes to a younger appearance to reveal your vibrant energy. Blepharoplasty makes one look like your younger self, friendlier, more vital, and more confident.
If you’ve been slathering on expensive serums and creams in hopes of tightening loose eyelid skin or banishing undereye bags, you may be a great candidate for blepharoplasty. While no cosmetic surgery can stop the aging process, most people who undergo eyelid rejuvenation never have to repeat the procedure to maintain their more youthful appearance.
Blepharoplasty may be right for you if you want to get rid of undereye bags caused by loosening of the muscle and skin under the eyes or if you have excess skin in the upper lids. Lower blepharoplasty repositions the fatty tissue and tightens the skin and muscle. Occasionally you may also need volume added. Upper blepharoplasty trims the sagging skin and restores the natural eyelid crease, making the eyes look more open and youthful. Occasionally, you can also improve the vision by elevating the upper lid. The only way to find out if blepharoplasty is right for you is to come in for an evaluation.
We enjoy helping our patients feel their best through minor, minimally invasive procedures that can be performed in our office under local anesthesia. For more information on blepharoplasty, call (828) 526-3783.
