Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a good choice for many patients who feel that their eyes always look tired. In many cases, this is a result of loose skin and excess fat deposits in the upper and lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty can help to give you a more youthful, refreshed appearance. We may recommend eyelid surgery if you are interested in improving the appearance of:
Bags under the eyes
Sagging or loose skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, which can sometimes impair vision
Excess skin and fine wrinkles in the lower eyelids
Drooping lower eyelids, revealing white below the iris
Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids
During eyelid surgery, our skilled plastic surgeon removes excess skin from the upper eyelids and fat deposits that result in puffiness in the lower eyelids. Based on your personal needs and desires, this procedure can be performed on either the upper or lower eyelids, or both. In some cases, Dr. Holderness may recommend that the upper eyelid surgery be completed first, and the lower lid surgery may not then be necessary. In addition to being used for aesthetic purposes, blepharoplasty can also be used to improve your field of vision and correct functional problems with your eyelids. If you believe that eyelid surgery may be a good choice for you, we encourage you to contact us today at Holderness Plastic Surgery and schedule a visit with our team.
