Blepharoplasty can take 10 years of the facial appearance!

Blepharoplasty, commonly called eye lift or eyelid rejuvenation, is one of the most successful cosmetic procedures today. It likely represents the best investment for the patient when it comes to facial cosmetic procedures. Many dermatologists use advanced techniques to optimize the results of blepharoplasty creating pleasing results while reducing the recovery and side effects.

Tired, hooded upper eyelids can portray fatigued appearance in someone who is full of energy and enthusiasm. This disconnect can be solved with well done eye lift that can restore youthful appearance that has a lasting potential. The procedure itself can remove the skin, muscle, fat either individually or together depending on each patient needs. This customization is very important as it can address the issues that are of particular concern to each patient.

When it comes to lower eyelids, excessive fullness and/or laxity can result in looking tired, not well rested or unhealthy from heart, thyroid or kidney issues. Of course, the causes of the lower eyelid fullness must be sorted out so that correct action can be taken. When the medical causes of the fullness are excluded, the patient can choose to have the fullness (usually related to protrusion of excessive fat) removed and the skin tightened wither through surgery or laser. Depending on the location of incisions, the scars can be minimal and not visible.

In some situation, only upper or only lower blepharoplasty need to be performed but in some situations, patients can elect to have both upper and lower blepharoplasty done. This way the recovery of these procedures can become one.

Eyelid rejuvenation is an excellent options for those wishing to have more bright and youthful appearance. Please make sure that you have a thorough assessment and consultation with a qualified doctor prior to proceeding with any treatments.
