Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery or an eyelid lift, is a common cosmetic procedure for addressing sagging, puffy, or drooping eyelids.
An eyelid lift is a safe and effective cosmetic surgery that can help improve the appearance of the eye area. The procedure involves removing excess skin and fat from your eyelids and tightening muscles to help create a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. Keep reading to learn more about blepharoplasty and what it can do for you.
What Does Blepharoplasty Treat?
Blepharoplasty can be used to treat a range of conditions that can affect your appearance, self-confidence, and even your vision, including:
- Loose or sagging skin
- Fatty deposits
- Bags under the eyes
- Hooded eyelids
- Lower eyelid drooping
- Lower eyelid excess skin and wrinkles
Am I a Good Candidate for an Eyelid Lift?
If you are unhappy with how your eyelids look or feel, blepharoplasty may be the right treatment choice. It is a relatively conservative surgical procedure and often does not require a general anesthetic. As long as you are in good health (your surgeon will review your lifestyle and medical history with you), chances are you are a candidate for eyelift surgery.
What Are the Benefits of Blepharoplasty?
An eyelid lift is a quick and relatively simple way to improve your self-confidence naturally and subtly. Reviving the appearance of your eyes can go a long way in restoring a youthful and vibrant look. Plus, blepharoplasty results can last years before signs of aging in the area recur.
What To Expect During the Blepharoplasty Procedure
Blepharoplasty is a relatively quick procedure. If focusing on just the upper or lower eyelids, your procedure may last between 60 and 90 minutes. If you combine both areas, the procedure can last up to two and a half hours. In 10 to 14 days, you’re likely to be back at work and engaging in social activities.
