Beautiful, youthful eyes are one of the most attractive features of our faces and rightly deserve a great deal of attention. Unfortunately, over time our eyes tend to lose their youthful, radiant quality and begin to look aged. The delicate skin around the eyes lacks the support of underlying fat and is quite susceptible to aging changes, easily stretching and developing bags and wrinkles. All this can obscure the eyes' innate beauty and make them look dull and tired.
Blepharoplasty is a surgery to remove excess skin (and sometimes muscle or fat) from the upper or lower eyelids. It is the leading cosmetic surgery.

Blepharoplasty makes a difference

Blepharoplasty is a surgery to remove excess skin (and sometimes muscle or fat) from the upper or lower eyelids. It is the leading cosmetic surgery. 10 years ago, blepharoplasty wasn’t such a popular surgical procedure. Now, it is one of the most marketable ones, for both men and women who want to achieve a radiant, youthful look. The secret to a rejuvenated face. Your face is one of the first areas to show the signs of aging. Droopy upper eyelids are just one of those signs and can have a significant impact on the way you look. As we age, skin loses its elasticity and starts to sag, including skin around your eyes. Droopy eyelids can make you look older, sad or tired. Blepharoplasty lifts the droopy skin, giving you a perkier appearance. There are many reasons to consider blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift, and you need a board-certified doctor you can trust.

When is Eyelid Surgery Medically Necessary?

The most important factor in determining the medical necessity of eyelid surgery is based on subjective findings, or the patient’s symptoms. Typically a patient will already know if their eyelids are causing problems with their activities of daily living, such as trouble reading, driving, or causing eye strain or headache.
This surgery is usually done for cosmetic reasons. It's also an effective way to improve sight in older people whose sagging upper eyelids get in the way of their vision.
There are two main types of blepharoplasty; upper and lower. Upper eyelid surgery serves to reposition or remove excess skin and tissue around the eyelids and can also correct upper eyelid folds that come over the eye (hooded eyelids). A small incision on the crease of the lid means that the procedure is relatively quick, and the scar is hidden discretely to avoid tell tale signs of surgery. Lower eyelid surgery, sometimes known as eye bag removal, is a simple, safe and quick procedure to remove excess fat and skin from around the eye.

Who is the best candidates for an eye liftsurgery?

The best candidates for an eye lift are people who are in good health and who have realistic expectations. Most are 35 years or older, but if baggy eyelids or droopy eyelids run in your family, you may decide to have the surgery done sooner.
Patients usually have a short recovery time after blepharoplasty. Although bruising and swelling is usually worse on the day after surgery, they quickly begin to disappear. During the first 48 hours, the use of cool compresses can greatly reduce bruising and swelling around the eyes and face. Light activity such as walking will also help speed healing. Thin bandages are usually placed over the incision sites and removed in several days, while the stitches can remain in the skin for about a week.
Most people return to normal activities after seven to 10 days following blepharoplasty. By two weeks after eyelid surgery, the majority of the bruising and swelling will resolve.
Eyelid surgery will give you a more youthful look and, if your droopy eyelids were affecting your vision, improve your vision also. Blepharoplasty done on your bottom lids will likely last forever and not need to be redone. Eyelid surgery on your top eyelid, however, will likely need to be redone after 7 to 10 years. This is simply because your eyes will continue to age, however, blepharoplasty is one of the longest lasting procedures you can have done to your eyes.
