Blepharoplasty Eyelid Surgery
What is Blepharoplasty?
Facial rejuvenation is a process associated with restoring a youthful appearance to a facial image that has felt the effects of maturity. But it’s not the only effect it can provide. One area many individuals like to alter is how the eyelid appears to others. Facial rejuvenation procedures can address this concern.
Eyelid surgery, also referred to clinically as blepharoplasty, is a wonderful procedure used to improve and sculpt one’s appearance, from changing the lift of the eye to removing hanging skin from the upper eyelid. Eyelid surgery involves creating small indiscernible incisions that follow the natural lines of the eyelid to minimize visible scarring. There are many procedures used in eyelid surgery. A conservative resection of the skin and increasing the fatty tissue supporting the upper eyelid are also ways to sculpt around one’s eyes.
The lower eyelids are also easily sculpted with eyelid surgery. Unwanted signs of aging or stress can include puffiness around the eye or small bags of fat. These can negatively impact a person’s presentation and appearance. Sculpting of the lower eyelid involves a small incision made behind the lower lid so as to hide any indications of surgery. In the event that an individual wants to remove hollows from around the eyes that can occur with aging, an expert can bolster the fat and skin in a procedure known as fat grafting to build up the tissue around the eyes.
Lifting the eyelid with blepharoplasty can be done independently of other facial rejuvenation procedures or it can be included with other procedures such as a facelift or brow lift. Eyelid surgery is performed in an office setting with local anesthesia and requires only a few days of healing for complete recovery.
