If your eyelids droop or appear baggy, you know how this is negatively affecting your appearance. You look tired or sleepy, bored and perhaps even annoyed. This isn’t considered a serious medical condition, but it can certainly affect your vision. The problem can be corrected through a special procedure known as blepharoplasty. Commonly referred to as an eyelid lift, this procedure effectively lifts up the upper lid, firms up the lower lid or does both. We strongly encourage you to learn more about how you can benefit from this simple cosmetic procedure. It’s performed as an outpatient procedure, and it can yield incredibly long-lasting results.
What an Eyelid Lift Can Treat
Eyelid surgery can treat drooping lower eyelids that are revealing too much eyeball beneath the iris. It can also correct bags that form under the eyes, fine wrinkles that develop on the lower eyelids and puffy eyelids caused by a buildup of fat underneath the skin. Drooping caused by folds or creases in the upper eyelid is easily corrected with a blepharoplasty procedure.
How an Eyelid Lift is Performed
We first consult with the client and outline the procedure in detail. Depending on whether both the upper and lower lids are treated, we will go through all of the procedure steps so that the client will be fully aware of what to expect.
The exact details of each procedure vary from patient to patient. If the drooping is significant, some skin may be removed and the lower skin pulled up, much the same way a facelift is performed. Excess fat may also be removed or repositioned, depending on the situation.
After the Procedure
We outline post-treatment care during the consultation. The client will have to follow our team’s instructions regarding healing for optimal results. Once you have fully recovered from the eyelid lift procedure, you can enjoy the results for years to come.
