Eyelid surgery is often performed as both a cosmetic and a corrective procedure. It basically reshapes and repositions the eyelids, the result being a more attentive and youthful appearance. Adults experience drooping of the upper and lower lids, and this gives them a sleepy, tired look. This and other problems associated with the appearance of the lid skin can be addressed via blepharoplasty.
We specialize in eyelid surgery, but we cannot offer a workable solution until after we have consulted with the client and examined the eyes and lids. We will then recommend one of several procedures that will bring about a positive change to the appearance of the eyes and the overall facial features. Below, we offer some general information on blepharoplasty and discuss when an individual should consider having it performed.
What the Procedure Corrects
This surgical procedure can help correct sagging skin on the upper eyelid. If the skin is drooping to such a degree that the lids and eyelashes are impairing vision, the surgery can address this problem. Fatty deposits below the skin can result in a puffy appearance, something that many adults experience. This can also be corrected via eyelid surgery. Bags under the eyes and drooping lower lids create an unwanted shadowing effect. Fine wrinkles on the lower lids can make an individual look much older. Blepharoplasty can help correct all of these problems.
Consulting with the Client
This is the first step to correcting problems with the upper and lower lids. After a thorough examination and a review of the client’s medical history, we can design a customized surgical procedure. The surgery itself is rather simple to perform, and there’s generally no need for an overnight stay at a clinic or hospital. We’ll give the client an information packet that helps them prepare for the surgical procedure.
