Blepharoplasty, also called eyelid surgery, rejuvenates your face by addressing sagging, drooping eyelids. If you’ve been wondering if this facial procedure is right for you, we hope you’ll contact our practice to consult our experienced cosmetic surgeons. There are many blepharoplasty benefits, including:
It can be performed on upper and lower eyelids:
Blepharoplasty can target upper or lower eyelids, or both. Puffy, sagging upper eyelids tend to make people look older, and they may interfere with your vision. Puffy upper eyelids also make it difficult to apply eye shadow and eyeliner. You may be bothered by people constantly asking whether you are tired or mad because they are misinterpreting your mood based on the appearance of your eyes.
With age, the lower eyelids tend to droop and puffy bags of fat form beneath the eyes. A lower blepharoplasty removes the excess skin and re-shapes the displaced fat.
It’s usually one of the top annual procedures in the U.S.:
In 2020, eyelid surgery was the Number 2 most popular procedure, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. That year, more than 325,000 blepharoplasties were performed. In 2019, before the arrival of the pandemic slowed elective surgery rates, more than 354,000 blepharoplasties were completed. We believe it is a top procedure because it tends to have high rates of patient satisfaction and minimal recovery.
The incisions are well-hidden:
Depending on what is being done in the procedure, an incision may be made along the natural fold of the upper eyelid, along the eyelashes, or on the inner surface of the lower eyelid. In all cases, the resulting scars are very well-hidden.
Although eyelid surgery has many benefits, that doesn’t mean it’s right for you. Our plastic surgeons want to make sure you are matched to a procedure that will be safe and effective given your goals, your skin, and the specific issues you want to address.
