Age can take a toll on our eyes, and not only with the need for reading glasses. The aging process can also impact the appearance of your eyes due to stretched, sagging skin from the eyelids. This can diminish the bright, alert look that your eyes had in your youth.
Thankfully, this common effect of aging can be corrected with blepharoplasty. This widely performed plastic surgery procedure will help you show off your beautiful eyes once again by addressing sagging upper eyelids or under-eye bags.
What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure used to enhance the appearance of the upper and/or lower eyelids. It may be used purely for aesthetic reasons, or to restore the patient’s field of vision after it’s been obstructed by sagging eyelid skin.
Upper blepharoplasty is done for sagging or drooping upper eyelids. It involves removing excess skin (and, if needed, a small amount of muscle or fat tissue) from the upper eyelid area. This results in a lifted, rejuvenated appearance of the eyes.
Lower blepharoplasty is performed for under-eye bags. Under-eye bags appear in older age because the skin under the eyes thins, making the underlying fat tissue more visible. Lower blepharoplasty can amend this concern by removing excess skin and fat tissue from under the eyes. Fat pad repositioning may be done in conjunction with this procedure to effectively smooth the under-eye area.
Blepharoplasty For Rejuvenated Eyes
Each patient’s eyes are different. Dr. Mahootchi can tailor your blepharoplasty procedure to suit your unique eye shape, as well as your aesthetic and functional needs. After the surgery, you’ll enjoy a more rested, lifted, and youthful appearance of the eyes.
