Eye Surgery

Overview

Perhaps more than any other portion of your face, the area surrounding your eyes can make you appear relaxed or exhausted, pleasant or furious, youthful or prematurely aged. Puffy or saggy eyelids, fine lines, and wrinkles can all be dramatically improved with cosmetic eye procedures. Depending on the type of therapy, the results of these cosmetic operations might last months or years.

Be certain about your reasons for desiring eye surgery before proceeding. Consider the costs, the hazards, and the reality that the results cannot be guaranteed.

It's a good idea to consult with your doctor first. There might be a medical condition affecting your eyelids or another reason why the surgery is not right for you.

 

What Eye Surgery Can Treat?

Eye Surgery Can Treat

  • Loose or sagging skin that causes wrinkles or disrupts the normal contour of the upper eyelid, occasionally limiting vision
  • Fatty deposits in the eyelids that appear as puffiness.
  • Bags under the eyes.
  • Lid Retraction.
  • Lower eyelids that droop and display white behind the iris.
  • Lower eyelid excess skin and fine creases.

 

Types of Plastic Eye Surgery

Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is a procedure used to treat droopy eyelids. During this type of plastic surgery, a doctor removes skin, muscle, and sometimes fat that may be causing the area around your eyes to sag.

 

Who’s a good candidate?

Eyelid surgery is primarily sought by people looking for anti-aging treatments. Sagging of the skin around your eyes is a natural part of aging, but you may consider this type of surgery if you’re starting to find such effects bothersome. Candidates also seek out blepharoplasty if they have significant bags under their eyes or if their eyebrows are starting to sag.

For some people, a blepharoplasty goes beyond cosmetic concerns. You might be a good candidate for this procedure if your vision is affected by sagging skin. Some people may complain that their vision when looking upwards is blocked by the hanging skin.

To reduce the risk of complications, you may also be a good candidate if you don’t smoke or have any chronic illnesses that can affect your recovery.
