Looking in the mirror and seeing eyes that have bags under them or an overall tired appearance can lead you to feel very self-conscious about the way you look. For some, getting rid of that tired appearance is just a matter of taking it easy for a while and getting some rest. However, for those who are genetically predisposed to having a lot of skin around their eyes or have started to experience sagging eyelids due to the aging process, more may be needed. Eyelid surgery may be able to help you improve your overall facial appearance.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure designed to help the face look younger by removing excess skin and fat from the eyelids. Drooping eyelids and undereye bags can make you look older and more tired than you actually feel. Eyelid surgery may be all you need to refresh your appearance and take years off your face.
The surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. The exact surgery that you receive will depend on your personal goals and needs. Eyelid surgery on the upper eyelid typically targets loose, drooping skin, while the procedure can remove the excess fat that contributes to undereye bags when performed on the lower eyelid. During your consultation with us, Mr. Salerno can help you decide on the right procedure for you and let you know what you can expect.
While many patients choose eyelid surgery for cosmetic reasons, it can provide medical benefits as well. In severe cases, excessive eyelid drooping can actually obstruct one’s vision. In situations such as this, eyelid surgery may be able to restore a patient’s vision while helping them look younger and more refreshed.
