Blepharoplasty Cosmetic Surgery

The Problem:

Do you look in the mirror every day and see droopy eyelids?  Unfortunately, as we age, our eyelids begin to stretch.  Meanwhile, the muscles become weaker.  This leads to more fat deposited both above and below your eyelids.  This causes your eyebrows to sag, upper eyelids to droop, as well as bags under your eyes.

Are your eyelids baggy or puffy?

  • Is the extra skin of your upper eyelid impeding your vision?
  • Do you have lower eyelids that are droopy?
  • Do you have bags that are present under your eyes?
  • Do you have extra skin on your lower eyelids?

The Solution:  Blepharoplasty Surgery

There is help for you if you are suffering from these symptoms.  During a blepharoplasty, your cosmetic surgeon will remove the excess fat and skin around your eyes.

200,000 cosmetic eyelid surgeries are performed annually,  The surgery usually takes 1-3 hours.  Typically, thin incisions are made along the creases of the eye.  The fat and sagging skin are separated from the facial muscles and then resected.  This procedure helps to eliminate droopy eyelids and bags beneath the eyes.

Any type of surgery involves risks, and so it is important to discuss your concerns with your cosmetic surgeon prior to determining if surgery is right for you.  Some of those risks include having eyes that are dry or irritated, having numbness of your eyelid, experiencing double vision for a period of time, scarring, impaired function of the eyelid, and even a very minor risk of becoming blind if there is excessive bleeding behind your eye.  Again, these risks should be discussed with your cosmetic surgeon.
