Find local board certified plastic surgeons that specialize in eyelid surgery
Aesthetic eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, removes the excess fat and wrinkled or drooping skin of the upper eyelids that so often make us look tired or sad. The surgery also works to eliminate bags under the eyes and tighten the lower eyelid skin. The result is a brighter, more alert and rested appearance.
About Eyelid Surgery
The goal of any good surgeon is to make people think you just came back from a relaxing vacation, rather than having just had surgery.
Eyelid surgery is performed on adults of all ages. Some people have eyelid surgery to correct problems that are a result of aging, while others have inherited traits that cause them to seek treatment as early as their 20s or 30s.
The Blepharoplasty Procedure
Blepharoplasty is the most common facial cosmetic procedures performed by Facial Plastic Surgeons today. The procedure involves removing fat, excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. In total, it all take about one to two hours. Most people return to their usual routine after five days and, if bruising is present, it is generally easy to conceal with make up. Total recovery time is not normally more than two weeks.
The best candidates for blepharoplasty are men and women who are physically healthy, psychologically stable, and realistic in their expectations. Most are 35 or older, but if droopy, baggy eyelids run in your family, you may decide to have eyelid surgery at a younger age.
