What Is Blepharoplasty?
Sometimes the tired look on a person’s face has nothing to do with how much sleep they get at night. Sagging skin of the eyelids and bulging fat pads can create a look of fatigue that may become more prominent even as early as your 20’s and 30’s due to hereditary factors.
Blepharoplasty is the procedure that restores a more youthful, well-rested appearance to your eyes by removing the excess skin, fat, and sagging muscle. For upper eyelid surgery, the incisions are hidden in the natural creases around the eyelids and heal with a virtually invisible scar. In cases of excess lower eyelid fat without any excess skin, the incision is made inside the eyelid and results in no externally visible scar. this procedure is known as lower eyelid blepharoplasty or eye bag surgery. there is also a type of blepharoplasty for the creation of a double eyelid.
Combining Your Eyelid Lift with Other Procedures
Sometimes heavy upper eyelids are the result of sagging along the forehead and eyebrows, in which case, a browlift may be recommended alone or in combination with a blepharoplasty.
Also important to consider is the presence of fine wrinkles around the lateral and lower eyelids. These aging features often do not respond to eyelid surgery and require some form of skin resurfacing such as chemical peel or laser. Other procedures such as fillers and Botox injections may also be used in complementary fashion with blepharoplasty to remove hallowing and wrinkles around the eyes.
What You Should Know Before Undergoing Eyelid Surgery
Blepharoplasty can easily be performed as an office procedure under local anesthetic or may be combined as part of a larger facial rejuvenation such as a facelift. Most eyelid surgery is performed for cosmetic reasons but some conditions may be treated as part of a medical condition that is covered by insurance. the cost of the procedure and payment options can be addressed during the consultation.
