What Are the Benefits of Eyelid Surgery?

Do you often feel that you look tired and/or exhausted when, in fact, you’re full of energy? How about angry or upset when you’re actually quite happy? As a focal point of our face, the appearance of our eyes can reveal a lot about our mood, age, and even our physical state. Unfortunately, this revelation may not always be one hundred percent accurate, especially for individuals experiencing visible signs of aging in and around the eye region.

The good news is, cosmetic eyelid surgery can often be an excellent solution for achieving a more rested, youthful-looking appearance. Medically referred to as blepharoplasty, this popular procedure can be utilized to target the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both simultaneously. For qualified patients, key benefits of eyelid surgery may include:

  • Smoothing of wrinkles and/or sagging skin in the upper and lower lids
  • A reduction in puffiness and/or bagginess around the eyes
  • The excision of fat accumulations in the upper and lower lids
  • The removal of excess, drooping skin in the eye region
  • An improvement in the appearance of bags and dark circles below the eyes

In addition to these aesthetic enhancements, blepharoplasty can also provide the functional benefit of improved vision through the removal of redundant, hanging skin that may be obstructing one’s eyesight.

Ultimately, when performed by a board certified plastic surgeon who has a high level of skill and expertise in eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty may be able to help you attain a more relaxed, rejuvenated aesthetic with natural-looking results.
