Eyelid surgery can resolve a number of cosmetic issues and achieve a refreshed, more youthful appearance.
Many individuals start to see fine lines, sagging skin, and increased puffiness around their eyes as they age. Luckily, a simple surgical procedure can fix these problems.
Eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure many choose to have in order to make their eyelids look refreshed and younger. This surgery can treat both the upper and lower eyelids, as well as resolve any functional problems relating to them.
What issues can be treated with blepharoplasty?
Eyelid surgery can be performed for a number of purposes. Among the most typical issues that can be taken care of are: skin that is sagging or drooping; fatty buildups causing puffiness in the eyelids; bags under the eyes; lower eyelids that are drooping; too much skin on the upper eyelid; and fine wrinkles on the lower eyelids.
By undergoing eyelid surgery, you can get rid of any excess skin, reduce puffiness, redefine the crease of your upper eyelid, and flatten out wrinkles under your eyes.
Who is suited to eyelid surgery?
The best candidates for eyelid surgery are those who are generally healthy and do not have any medical conditions that could impede healing. Ideal candidates are also non-smokers.
If you decide to go ahead with the surgery, it is important that you have realistic aesthetic goals. While the procedure can go a long way towards improving one’s overall appearance, it’s always best to consult with your surgeon beforehand so that you can discuss your specific concerns and raise any questions that you might have.
Your surgeon will let you know exactly what you can expect from the process, and give you an idea of the type of results that can be realistically achieved, depending on your specific issues.
What will your consultation involve?
Before you go ahead with eyelid surgery, you will need to see your surgeon to discuss your aesthetic goals, as well as any health conditions that you have. Your surgeon will also take this opportunity to evaluate your general health and confirm that you are a suitable candidate for treatment. They will take some photographs, and discuss the various options that are available to you.
During your consultation, you are encouraged to raise any questions or concerns that you have. Your surgeon will explain any potential risks and side-effects associated with the treatment, as well as provide guidance and advice for your recovery period.
