Droopy Eyelid Surgery Rejuvenates the Eyes and Results in a Youthful Appearance
Ptosis, or sagging, droopy eyelids, can give a person the appearance of always being tired. If the sagging is significant it can impair vision, especially in the periphery. Advanced age can bring about the condition known as dermatochalasis, or baggy eyes, where there is an excess of skin in either the upper or lower eyelids.
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, aims to reverse the appearance of tired looking or baggy eyes and correct any vision impairment they cause.
Droopy eyelid surgery can result in rejuvenated eyes and a youthful appearance. You may want to consider Blepharoplasty if you have:
- Droopy upper eyelids
- Eyelids that interferes with your vision
- Droopy lower eyelids that sag below the iris
- Excessive skin on the lower eyelids
- Dark bags or sunken skin under the eyes
At Plastic Surgery Specialists of South Florida we use state of the art techniques to make dark, sagging, tired looking eyes appear refreshed and alert. The eyelid procedures we perform include the removal of excess skin and fat to correct their appearance. Some patients benefit from transposing excess fat from the eyelids to fix the hollow region that develops with bags under the eyes. Wrinkles around the eyes can be further improved with skin removal and laser resurfacing.
Blepharoplasty is Simple and Safe
Blepharoplasty is often an outpatient procedure. The anesthesia involved is a numbing agent administered by injection into the eyelids. Your plastic surgeon will make the incisions near the natural creases of your eyelids in order to more effectively hide the scars. Excessive skin, muscle and fat is removed and some fat may be redistributed as needed. The incision is then closed with the entire procedure taking about an hour to perform. Droopy eyelid surgery can easily be performed alongside other facial procedures like brow or face lifts.
Blepharoplasty can do wonders for one’s appearance. If impaired vision is present, it is likely that your medical insurance will cover the procedure. Contact the experts at Plastic Surgery Specialists of South Florida to schedule your consultation and learn about how we can help.
