No matter how young you feel, if you have puffiness and sagging around your eye lids and eye area, your face will look older than you’d like it to. Your eye area can be saggy or look puffy for many reasons. Between the stresses work, lack of sleep, allergies and age, the puffy bags and dark circles around your eyes can age your face. Blepharoplasty, which is the surgical term for an eyelid lift, is a procedure that could alleviate the bags and puffiness around your eyes and eyelids. This procedure is routinely performed on both men and women to help their eyes and their entire face look refreshed and younger.
Who Can Benefit from Eyelid Surgery?
A good candidate for eyelid surgery is a person who is in good health who wants to have the area around their eyes lifted and improved to remove fat or excess skin that is making them look older. You and Dr. Avron are the ones who will be able to decide whether this procedure is right for you or not. Eyelid surgery is routinely performed and very safe. You must also understand and follow the doctor’s instructions and be willing to follow them to the letter.
Skin and fat may be removed during an eyelid lift. This may be done on the top and bottom of your eyelids. The areas of change will be determined by you and Dr. Avron during your consultation. Having excess skin removed from your upper eyelid can sometimes improve your vision if the sagging is impeding your sight. Having puffiness removed from your lower eyelid only takes a tiny incision for each eye that is almost invisible after the surgery.
Eyelid surgery usually takes about three hours or less. After the surgery you will be provided with pain medication and a bandage will cover your incisions.
