For many people, aging first appears around the eyes, with baggy, sagging skin. More than a cosmetic concern, eyelid aging can impact a person’s ability to see and when bad enough even qualifies for insurance. No matter what your age, if your eyes are aging faster than you’d like, a bleparoplasty, or eyelid tuck, may be the answer to clear vision and letting your beauty shine.
This outpatient procedure is designed to address three typical issues around the eyes, which can make them, and you, look tired. The most common challenge is an excess of skin involving both the upper and lower eyelids. An eyelid tuck removes the extra skin and recreates the normal skin fold of the upper lid.
Bags under the eyes are caused by bulging fat. A blepharoplasty removes this fat to help smooth out the contour to a more natural shape and look. Finally, in some patients, overactive muscles can cause a noticeable bulge just under the lower eyelid, especially during smiling. Trimming the muscle helps to obtain the best results.
Our patients are amazed at how much younger they look and feel by simply addressing some of the issues surrounding their eyes.
