What Is a Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is a surgical treatment to augment the appearance of the eyelids. As time passes, the skin of the eyelids can begin to droop with age, resulting in a tired or distressed appearance. Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both to remodel your facial profile for an improved youthful look with greater functionality. If you are seeking to refresh the look of your eyelids or if your eyelids may be impairing your vision, Blepharoplasty may be a solution to consider. Contact us today to schedule a consultation appointment.
What Can Blepharoplasty Treat?
- Impaired vision as a result of loose or drooping skin that interrupts the contour of the upper eyelid
- Drooping lower eyelids that may reveal any white below the iris
- Excessive skin or wrinkles of the lower eyelids
- Bags beneath the eyes
- Any fat that may make the eyelids appear to be swollen
What is the Blepharoplasty Process Like?
The Blepharoplasty process begins with an administration of local anesthesia to comfort the patient prior to the procedure. Next, a crescent incision will be made depending on whether the upper eyelid or lower eyelid or both will be treated. The excess skin will be removed and following removal, fine sutures will be used to close up the incisions. Should a patient have eyelids that gravitate very close to the pupil, a ptosis procedure can be combined with the Blepharoplasty. Following treatment, patients may experience some swelling or bruising. An application of a cold compress will be advised to relieve any swelling. Patients will be scheduled for a follow-up appointment one week following treatment to monitor progress.
