How Does Eyelid Surgery Rejuvenate the Face?
When we look at another person’s face, the first thing we habitually notice is the eyes. While a beautiful color, nice shape, and well done eye make-up may be noticed first, what often is more telling is the presence of puffiness, sagging, fine lines, and crow’s feet. These are signs of age, and without preventative or corrective procedures, they can have an effect on how old we look. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John L. LeRoy values his patient’s looking just as young on the outside as they feel on the inside, and feels strongly that confidence in yourself defies any number.
In his years of surgical experience, Dr. LeRoy has seen many patients come in feeling weary over not being able to correct the progression of aging eyes that seem to affect the entire appearance of the face. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a procedure that reinstates an alert and rested appearance to the eye area by removing excess skin and fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery provides effective, yet subtle results that have the potential to take years off your face.
When patients begin to see signs of aging in their thirties and forties, a “touch-up” around the eyes with Band Aid Blepharoplasty can do the trick rather than opting for a full eyelid procedure. Unlike traditional eyelid surgery, Dr. LeRoy’s Band Aid Blepharoplasty uses the same methods behind the renowned Band Aid Facelift and performs the operation in-office, using only gentle numbing (local anesthesia). However, Band Aid Blepharoplasty does share the same qualities of traditional blepharoplasty in that it removes pockets of excess fat and sagging skin, just in a less invasive way. For further eye rejuvenation, patients often choose to undergo blepharoplasty in combination with browlifts, which raise the eyebrows and smooth skin on the forehead.
Eyelid lifts are not limited to women. Dr. LeRoy performs them on both men and women who are interested in facial anti-aging or bothersome eye sagging.
