It is common for individuals to deal with droopy skin on their upper and lower eyelids as they start to get older. This can cause a person to look and feel tired, worn out, and just plain old.

Eyelid surgery can be performed to address both the upper and lower eyelids. Or just one part of the eyelids can be addressed. When you visit us for your initial consultation, we will examine your eyelids and then recommend a course of action that will fit your specific needs.

The great thing about modern eyelid surgery techniques is that most individuals do not need to worry about visible scars. These scars are usually small and light. They can be hidden in the natural creases of the eyelids or along the lash line.

In order to qualify for the surgery, an individual needs to have an issue that the surgery will correct. If you are dealing with excess skin on the upper or lower eyelids, excess fat on the upper or lower eyelids, or a droopy brow, all of these things can be addressed with this surgery. Additionally, tear troughs, dark undereye circles, and undereye bags can also be improved with this surgery.

How This Surgery Can Benefit You

This surgery is often used to help individuals who have droopy skin on their upper eyelids that blocks their vision. It is not uncommon for individuals in this situation to constantly feel like they have to keep their eyebrows lifted in order to see well. When the muscles in the upper eyelids are tightened and that excess skin is removed, an individual will be able to have relief from these problems.

The primary reason why eyelid surgery is performed is to address cosmetic issues. Having a lot of hanging skin on the upper and lower eyelids can really detract from a person’s appearance. It can make a person look like they are tired and sad all of the time. If this describes your situation, you know how this takes it on your energy level and your self-confidence.

You may have even had experiences where you missed out on good opportunities because of the negative effect that loose eyelid skin is having on your appearance. For example, when a person looks tired and stressed out because of this loose skin, they may not be able to advance in their career as they would like. Their appearance gives the impression that they are too tired to take on more responsibility. Having eyelid surgery performed is a great way to refresh your appearance and have what you feel on the inside match with how you look on the outside.

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.
