Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

faceolderAn eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, can improve the sad, tired, or angry look that can be caused by lack of sleep, environmental conditions, and the natural process of aging. Since the eyes are often one of the first things others notice about you, many people are very conscious of the effect that the eyes have on the entire facial appearance. Eyelid surgery from Dr. Timothy Best can reduce signs of undereye bags, eliminate sagging skin in the upper eyes, and generally give the areas around the eyes a more youthful and rested look.

Upper Eyelid Lift Treatment

Upper eyelids can develop excess, droopy skin which often cause the eye region to look crowded. This condition can create visual obstructions, and even make wearing mascara difficult. The cushioning fat pads around the eye start to sag or herniate forward, creating bulges that further crowd the upper eyelid. Upper blepharoplasty surgery removes excess skin, and repositions or removes bulging fatty tissue from the upper eyelid. The remaining skin is tightened for a smoother appearance.

Lower Eyelid Surgery Treatment

Lower eyelids can develop droopy skin, bags and bulges. Lower eyelid surgery removes excess skin, and repositions or removes the bulging fat pads that create the bags. This rejuvenation typically results in a brighter and more rested appearance. Eyelid surgery can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a facelift or forehead (brow) lift.

Incisions for eyelid surgery treatments are placed in very discreet areas around the eyes, such as the natural creases of the eyelids, and therefore any residual scarring should be virtually unnoticeable. The procedure can usually be performed as a day-treatment, and patients typically do not require an overnight hospital stay. Dr. Best will discuss all aspects of eyelid surgery, including recovery expectations, once he has evaluated your needs at the initial consultation.

Eyelid surgery does not correct problems such as low eyebrows or poor skin quality; however, there are alternative procedures that can address issues such as those. A proper assessment of each individual patient’s needs is an integral part of the consultation process with Dr. Best in order to create a surgical plan that can have the most successful results.
