Blepharoplasty or eye lid surgery brightens ones appearance and is often the first area to reveal stress, tiredness or age. It is a commonly requested procedure as the results can be so very exciting. Eyelid surgery addresses puffiness and loose skin (sagging and bagging) around the eyes. The results can quite natural and amazing. Many people comment on how clean their eyes feel afterwards and how bright their appearance is. Some comment that they get comments that they look like they lost weight or feel relaxed. Many wish they would have had the procedure done earlier because for the positive effects they have noticed in themselves.
Blepharoplasty often requires a little trim of skin, some muscle tightening, and either fat removal or repositioning depending upon individual characteristics and requests. Eyelid surgery commonly performed on both the upper and lower lids in order to perform a harmonious look. On occasion a brow lift and or a facelift will also be added to enhance the face as well. Recently Dr Charles Perry has added the transconjunctival blepharoplasty for those patients whom only have a little extra fat that bulges from the lower lid. The advantage of this approach is that there are no external incisions on the lower eyelid. Some have referred to it as a “no touch technique” or incision-less (like the closed rhinoplasty). This allows for quicker recovery in most cases. It is important to review your goals with your physician prior to any surgical procedure and discuss in detail all the possibilities. In some instances a little skin can be removed from the lower lid or a laser resurfacing performed at the same time to enhance the skins texture tightness and result. There are many options available for and we look forward to discussing your individual needs.
