Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is now the most common facial plastic surgery procedure among women age 35-60 and is also the second most common cosmetic surgical procedure for males. It can significantly improve your facial appearance, giving a youthful, refreshed look.
As we age, the skin around our eyes becomes loose and begins to sag. This excess skin can cover a portion of or all of the eyelashes, and can give a sad or tired appearance. In some cases, excess skin on the upper lid may actually interfere with your peripheral vision. For these more severe cases, insurance coverage for this procedure is possible. Upper lid blepharoplasty removes excess skin and, sometimes, excess fat over the eyes in order to restore a youthful eyelid contour. Occasionally, a brow lift is also recommended to maximize the results of an upper lid blepharoplasty if the excess skin on the eyelids is partly due to descent or drooping of the eyebrows.
Lower lid blepharoplasty can make you look refreshed by removing skin and repositioning the fat around the lower eyelids to restore a youthful appearance. There is a fine balance between a natural looking improvement, and a hollowed out appearance. We can help you achieve a drastic improvement in the appearance of your eyes without a surgical look.
