Continue reading to learn all about eyelid surgery and if it’s right for you.
What Is Eyelid Surgery?
Commonly known as a blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery is an occulofacial procedure designed to counteract signs of aging around the eyes and address eyelid ptosis.
It can be performed on the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both. It may also be completed in conjunction with other plastic surgery treatments, including a brow lift.
What Can Eyelid Surgery Address?
There are a number of cosmetic reasons that prompt women and men to seek eyelid surgery. These may include sagging lids, under eye bags, dark circles, crepey skin, hooded lids, and bulging fat pads.
Additionally, blepharoplasty is a safe and effective way to restore vision that has been impaired by ptosis.
Following surgery, these patients not only look revitalized, they are also able to resume activities like reading, driving, and watching TV and receive a new lease on life.
What Can Patients Expect from the Procedure?
During the procedure, excess skin is removed, loose skin is tightened, muscles are repaired, and fat is removed or repositioned. The specifics of each case depend on the individual’s unique anatomy, concerns, and goals.
Another important factor that Dr. Rostami and Dr. Naz consider in customizing treatment is the type of eyelid surgery.
Upper blepharoplasty can typically be done with minimal anesthesia and recovery. Lower blepharoplasty or a combined approach may be more complex and requires the expertise of an occulofacial plastic surgeon with extensive experience.
