Eliminate Puffy Bags Beneath the Eyes
Eliminating the puffy pouches beneath the can erase the telling toll of time. An eyelid lift, to remove the baggy skin under the eyes brings the eyelids back to a tighter look, diminishing on the fine wrinkles that increase with age. In some cases, blepharoplasty can reduce the dark circles beneath the eyes. The end result is tighter skin with fewer wrinkles.
Get Rid of Excess Skin in Eyelids
As you age, the skin in your eyelids stretch and the muscles that support them begin to weaken. This leaves loose sagging skin in the upper and lower eyelid that makes eyes look closed and smaller as upper lid skin hangs over the lid margin and lashes. In some people, the eyelids simply look heavy and puffy as skin becomes looser and sags and the fat behind the eyes pooches forward. Carefully removing the skin and fat behind it, removes these tell-tale signs of aging, rejuvenating the eyes.
This same sagging skin over your eyelids, when severe, can also impair peripheral or side vision. Blepharoplasty is often used to correct the problem and restore vision by removing the hooding of excess skin and fat in the upper eyelid.
Blepharoplasty is typically performed as an outpatient surgery with a relatively short recovery time.. In some cases, the incision for lower lid blepharoplaty is made inside the eyelid leaving no visible scarring from the procedure.
An eyelift can be combined with other procedures to maximize the benefit or “wow” factor of your procedure. These include brow lifts and facelifts. The fine wrinkles around the eyes can also be treated with fractionated laser procedures. Other minimally invasive procedures such as plumping wrinkles with dermal fillers or relaxing wrinkles with Botox injections can compliment the over all rejuvenating effect or upper and lower lid blepharoplasty.
