Eyelid Surgery: Tired of Looking Tired?

Eyelid SurgeryLooking at someone’s eyes can usually give you an accurate prediction of their age, unless of course you’re looking into the eyes of one of my blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) patients. With age, the eyelids begin to wrinkle and droop: producing a tired, matured appearance.  Blepharoplasty can enhance the eyes by removing the excess skin and tissue contributing to an aged look.

During a traditional blepharoplasty procedure, I remove the excess skin and fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids depending on the patient’s needs. Some patients have a hooded appearance due to sagging upper eyelids that warrants an upper lid blepharoplasty. Other patients only need a lower lid blepharoplasty to get rid of fat pockets and wrinkles on their lower eyelids, but when necessary I perform a dual procedure to remedy both effects.

It sounds like there are quite a few options for eyelid rejuvenation already, doesn’t it? However, I also perform Band Aid Blepharoplasty. Just like the rest of my Band Aid procedures (Band Aid Liposuction, Band Aid Tummy Tuck, Band Aid Brow Lift, and Band Aid Facelift), the Band Aid Blepharoplasty is a minimally invasive version of the traditional blepharoplasty that is performed right in my office with gentle numbing (local anesthesia). Band Aid Eyelid Surgery is well-suited for patients whose appearance doesn’t quite warrant the traditional blepharoplasty procedure.

Did you know that an aged eye appearance can be caused by wrinkles and sagging skin of the brow too? I often see patients for a blepharoplasty consultation only to conclude that their areas of concern actually call for a brow lift or Band Aid Brow Lift. A brow lift removes the excess sagging and drooping skin of the forehead to lift the eyebrows and give the eyes a more youthful appearance.

If you’re concerned with the look of your eyes, but still aren’t sure which one of these facial rejuvenation procedures will produce the results you’re looking for, schedule a consultation so I can help determine the right procedure for you. Also, be sure to check out the rest of my website and stay tuned to my blog to learn more about the other cosmetic procedures I offer.
