What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelift or eyelid surgery, is a procedure to improve the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the appearance of your eyes, making you look well rested and more youthful.
What Conditions can Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty Treat?
Upper lid blepharoplasty can be performed for both functional and aesthetic reasons. Upper eyelid surgery can enhance the appearance of the eyes and boost self-confidence. Often patients who experience the best outcome are those who have droopy or tired-looking eyes. Other patients may have puffy appearing eyes or excess eyelid skin. Frequently the excess skin and fat of the upper lid may create fullness on the upper lid, and the removal or repositioning of this tissue has a dramatic effect on the entire facial appearance.
What Conditions can Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty Treat?
Lower lid blepharoplasty is performed to improve the appearance of the lower eyelids and cheek area. Patients with eye bags and loose skin under the eyes do very well with lower eyelid surgery. Puffy lower eyelids make you look tired and can be one of the first signs of aging. Blepharoplasty for eye bags will create a more rested and youthful appearance around the eyes.
