Blepharoplasty - Reduces Signs of Facial Aging

Posted Nov 14 2010 11:53pm

Aging can cause the skin of the eyelids to sag and become droopy and crinkled. This makes the eyes look tired and smaller. Blepharoplasty reduces signs of facial aging by correcting the drooping eyelids and removing the baggy skin. It can also help by restoring the field of vision lost by the droopy eyelids.

Are You Ready for Blepharoplasty?

An experienced facial surgeon can easily determine if you are a good candidate for blepharoplasty. Below are some of the problems that can be addressed with Blepharoplasty:

  • Fatty deposits on both the upper and lower lids
  • Loose sagging skin on the upper eyelids
  • Vision impairment due to drooping skin
  • Puffiness or bags under the lower lids
  • Tired and droopy eyes

Blepharoplasty Works Wonders for Aging Eyes, Creating a New Look

A consultation with a qualified cosmetic surgeon will help you find out more about the procedure, answer all your questions, and give you all relevant information about the results that can be expected. The surgery takes about one to three hours and can be performed under intravenous sedation or local anesthesia. It does not involve hospitalization and the patient can return home a few hours after surgery. The surgeon makes very tiny incisions along the skin folds. These are hidden in the skin folds and below the lashes. After removing the excess fat, the muscles and tissues are tightened. After repositioning of the skin, any extra skin is trimmed out. Sutures or adhesive are used to close the incisions. Recovery is quick and any swelling or redness disappears soon.

Blepharoplasty visibly reduces signs of facial aging by eliminating the tired look in your eyes largely caused by superfluous skin and fat. It successfully removes the puffiness from around the eyes. Vision impaired by the drooping skin is also corrected by this procedure. One can have alert and sparkling eyes again, which greatly enhances their facial appearance.
