Blepharoplasty: Rejuvenating Eyelid Surgery
If you are experiencing droopy lids, you may wonder if an elective blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery or eyelid lift, is right for you.
Several changes occur in our eyelids as we age. By the time we reach our late 30s or early 40s, the thin skin of our eyelids starts to lose its elasticity and begins to stretch, resulting in excess folds of skin that may actually hang down over the edge of the upper eyelids. Fine lines and creases appear in the delicate skin around the lids. Also, as we age, the levator muscle, which lifts the upper eyelids can become weak, causing the upper eyelid to droop. Additionally, fat pads may start to protrude through the skin and cause bags, particularly in the lower eyelids. The result is a tired, sleepy, or sad look. These changes detract from the natural beauty of our eyes.
Blepharoplasty or eyelid lift can go a long way in restoring a youthful appearance with minimal cost, risk and recovery time.
These conditions are often treatable through blepharoplasty:
- Puffiness in the upper eyelids caused by excess fatty deposits
- Loose or sagging skin that creates folds disturbing the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision
- Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid
- Bags under the eyes
- Droopiness of the lower eyelids
