Patients who have imperfections around the eyes that are contributing to an aged appearance may be interested in talking with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon regarding the options available to them to resolve these problems. This includes issues such as sagging upper eyelids or bags underneath the eyes. When patients visit with the team at the Skin and Beauty Center, they are often interested in finding out what can be done about these concerns. The solution? Blepharoplasty.
What is blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is a blanket term for eyelid surgery. It is performed by an experienced provider who can remove excess skin, fat, and tissue that contributes to an aged appearance and tighten the muscles as well. The result is a more youthful look and less skin and fat around the eyes. The procedure often refreshes a patient’s appearance, allowing them to look well-rested and younger!
Who is a good candidate for blepharoplasty?
The blepharoplasty procedure is often appropriate for any adult patients who are in good overall health and have realistic goals and expectations as to what can be achieved with this procedure. Certain serious eye conditions may prohibit a person from having the procedure performed, as these should be addressed beforehand. To determine candidacy, we recommend scheduling a consultation appointment with the team at the Skin and Beauty Center to discuss your unique concerns and the results you would like to achieve. With the help of our staff, patients can find out if the blepharoplasty treatment is the right one for their unique desires. We provide information regarding how to prepare for the procedure, including the amount of time needed for recovery and healing following surgery. Post-operative instructions should be followed closely to reduce the risk of complications, including infection.
