Am I a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

The aging process can wreak havoc on your appearance. It can cause you to look tired, worn out, and angry all of the time. This can lead to people making assumptions about you that are not true. This is especially the case when the aging process starts to affect the skin around your eyes. Having bags under your eyes and hanging skin on your upper eyelids can make you look and feel unattractive. For this reason, many individuals are turning to eyelid surgery. Let’s discuss some of the things that make a person a good candidate for this procedure.

Unfortunately, there will come a point in everyone’s life where less invasive treatments just do not get the job done. It is usually at this point when a person will take the necessary steps to have that excess skin removed, the muscles tightened, and the fat pockets removed. This produces the most dramatic, long-lasting results.

One reason why doing research is important is because it is going to give you a realistic idea of what eyelid surgery can really do for you. It is going to improve your appearance and give you a much more youthful look. However, it is not going to make you look like you are 18 years old again. Additionally, you should have good emotional and mental health. Never have cosmetic surgery performed in order to please someone else.

When you visit us for your initial consultation, we are going to examine your health. While eyelid surgery is extremely safe and usually has very few complications, it is still surgery. This means that the healthier you are before going through surgery, the better results you are likely to have. You are going to need to take some time after the procedure in order to recover. Most individuals are able to get back to normal activities about seven to 10 days after their surgery is performed.

The most common form of eyelid surgery is having excess skin removed on the upper eyelids. In some cases, individuals have so much excess skin that their vision is blocked. For some individuals, it is only necessary to have the skin removed. For other individuals, it is necessary to remove the skin, loose muscle, and fatty pockets. Your anatomy is going to determine the best technique for your circumstances.

It is possible to combine upper and lower eyelid surgery. When lower eyelid surgery is performed, excess fat deposits that bulge under the eyes are usually removed. In some cases, a chemical peel will be used to tighten the skin after the procedure.
