Cosmetic Surgery Q & A

What is a blepharoplasty procedure?

A blepharoplasty procedure is used to remove any excess tissue located around the eye that can cause discomfort, heavy bags, or sagging skin. Fat, skin, muscle, and other types of soft tissue can be removed and other tissues in the area rejuvenated to help restore more youthful and toned skin. Blepharoplasty can also prevent the eventually drooping of upper lids that can obstruct the person's vision and cause irritation to both the eye and the skin.

What are the benefits of the procedure?

By removing the excess skin that often accumulates near the near eye, the doctor can provide the person with a more youthful, vibrant appearance. If loose skin is hanging over the eye, it can improve a person's vision and reduce any irritation to the eye or eyelids. This type of procedure can also help the eyelids function more efficiently, allowing them to fully moisturize the eye and reduce dryness and irritation. Blepharoplasty procedures also tighten and tone the skin, removing wrinkles and lines that often appear at the corners of the eyes and across the forehead.

Who is a good candidate for this type of procedure?

Blepharoplasty procedures are ideal for individuals who have excess skin around the eyes or noticeable wrinkles and fine lines on the face. The procedure can offer noticeable benefits for individuals who have loose, sagging skin over their eyelids that has started to affect their vision. Sagging skin can blocked tear ducts, hamper vision, and cause irritation to both the eye and the eyelids. It can also harbor bacteria that can lead to recurring eye infections. Patients who have deep wrinkles around the eyes that affect how the eyelids close may also receive noticeable benefits. The procedure can be effectively used to tighten and tone the skin around the eyes and across the forehead, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
