What You Need To Know About Upper Eyelid Surgery

Also known as blepharoplasty, the upper eyelid lift procedure is becoming an increasingly popular procedure among both men and women. Recent plastic surgery statistics show that the number of eyelid surgery procedures increased by 42 percent in recent years, according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.

Knowing what results an upper eyebrow lift can – and can’t – achieve is important when researching about this surgery. If you’re contemplating undergoing a blepharoplasty, read on to learn more about the reasons behind blepharoplasty and what it can achieve:

Blepharoplasty addresses various concerns. The upper eye area becoming puffy or baggy is a common part of the aging process. Excessive upper eye skin and folds can be the result of a chronic lack of sleep, poor sleeping habits, a hereditary health condition or just as a part of your natural genetic aging pattern.

Blepharoplasty delivers great aesthetic results. Depending on the extent of the excess baggy upper eyelid skin, the procedure’s results can be subtle, minimal or substantial. By sculpting, lifting and rejuvenating the upper eyelids, blepharoplasty improves the look of the eye area, as well as making the patient’s overall appearance look younger and refreshed. The blepharoplasty procedure can also improve the look of forehead wrinkles and folds, as well as the “11” wrinkles located between the eyebrows.

Blepharoplasty can be done for medical reasons. Many patients who go in for blepharoplasty consultations complain of their baggy upper eye area hindering their vision. The loose skin from upper eyelids can block their field of vision, which is a condition that can be hazardous when driving. A blepharoplasty can expand a patient’s field of vision and view while increasing the comfort of their eye area.

Blepharoplasty creates customized results. When searching for a licensed plastic surgeon to perform your blepharoplasty procedure, it’s vital to select a doctor who carefully listens to your expectations for the procedure, as well as your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Smith will review the various ways that blepharoplasty can improve the condition of your eye area, whether it’s for medical or aesthetic reasons, and address any of your questions or concerns.
