The New You Awaits
Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, may be performed on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid or both at the same time. Most of the procedures are done on an outpatient basis; at Peninsula Plastic Surgery they are usually performed in our state-of-the-art, fully accredited Surgery Center.
Eyelid surgery may be performed for both cosmetic and functional reasons, in the latter case your health insurance may cover this operation. Check out just a few of the many benefits eyelid surgery might offer.
Eyelid Surgery Can Result in Fewer Fine Lines
While this is not the primary goal of eyelid surgery for most patients, many see a significant improvement in those early, Lifting both the upper and lower lid can reduce the number of lines seen around the outer corners and lower lid of the eye. To enhance these results, consider a skin rejuvenation treatment like a chemical peel that will provide additional smoothing for those eye creases.
No More Bags
Bags below the eye can give you a fatigued appearance even if you are getting sufficient rest. A lower eyelid lift can remove those baggy areas by eliminating excess skin and tissue below the eye. In some cases, we may even be able to improve the appearance of dark circles under the eye.
Eyelid Surgery Can Also Improve Your Vision
When you have significant heaviness, drooping of the upper eyelid, it can be more than a cosmetic concern. Those extra deposits of skin and tissue on the lid or drooping of the eyebrow can also impair your line of vision. By removing those deposits and subtly lifting the brow-upper lid, we can also expand your line of sight. Some patients even note greater comfort in the forehead area because brow muscles are not being constantly used to raise the upper lid for improved vision.
A Refreshed Appearance
Blepharoplasty is one of the most effective ways to give your entire face a refreshed appearance. The procedure also enhances the shape and appearance of your eyes specifically.
Whether you undergo eyelid surgery alone or in combination with other surgical or cosmetic procedures, you are likely to see dramatic results after your procedure. That rejuvenated appearance can also go far in improving your self-confidence and your self-esteem.
