As you grow older, your eyelids are going to droop and the muscles that support your eyelids can weaken. Just below your eyes, small pockets of fat may stretch out the nearby skin and create a “tired” appearance. The primary goal of blepharoplasty is to minimize those cosmetic issues, but this procedure may improve your vision as well. This surgery is an excellent option for patients who are no longer happy with the appearance of their eyes and eyelids.
Preparing for Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery is a surgical procedure, and that is why you schedule an initial consultation with one of our friendly and knowledgeable team members. Before carrying out any procedure, we want to learn about your medical history and carry out a comprehensive checkup. We can also give you more information on the details of this procedure. Even though eyelid surgery has a very high success rate, this operation isn’t for everyone. For example, patients who have certain medical conditions that affect the eyes or face may not be good candidates.
The Basics of Blepharoplasty
The details of each procedure vary. During the procedure, our surgeon may remove any excess fat that is inside the eyelids and reposition the remaining soft tissue. However, it all depends on the unique case.
Benefits of Eyelid Surgery
Most patients have this procedure carried out to improve the appearance of their eyes and eyelids. It is an excellent option for those who have “tired” eyes or drooping eyelids. Eyelid surgery can also be used to improve one’s periphery vision. As excess fat builds up in the eyelids, it may even block an individual’s field of vision and make it difficult to see objects off to the side. With modern techniques and advanced surgical tools, blepharoplasty may be used to address these issues.
