Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a minimally invasive procedure involving repairing drooping eyelids. The process entirely removes excess skin and fat to improve your eyelids. You can have Scarsdale eyelid surgery for cosmetic reasons or medical conditions like relieving headaches and enhancing vision. This treatment can involve one or both of your eyelids. But if your surgery involves both eyelids, you will have two separate operations. Your surgeon customizes the procedure according to your needs. Eyelid surgery has various benefits, and below are some.
Eyelid surgery helps reduce excess fat pockets that lead to the appearance of under-eye bags. Many people associate eye bags with insufficient sleep, allergies, or fatigue, but this is not always the case. Under-eye bags can result from lower eyelid fat prolapse. Eyelid surgery improves your eye bags by removing, repositioning, and sculpturing the orbital fat. After fat removal, the skin may tend to sag, so your surgeon will tighten it during the procedure.
Excess skin in your upper eyelid sometimes drapes over your eyelashes, causing seeing difficulties. This sagging can be caused by genetic factors, age, sun exposure, or poor lifestyle habits. If you are tipping your head to get a clear view of things, you may need eyelid surgery. Sagging upper eyelids can cause vision problems and other health issues. Eyelid surgery tightens your upper eyelid muscle and ligament to improve your vision.
Eyelid surgery can benefit the upper and lower eyelids by reducing excess skin and fat from the eyelids and reshaping surrounding areas. This procedure improves your eye shape giving you a youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Your surgeon can combine eyelid surgery with face lifting techniques like fat grafting and dermal fillers to help you achieve a youthful look.
Excess skin on your eyelids may feel heavy due to skin weighing them down and altering your seeing ability. You may frequently raise your eyebrows to improve vision, leading to deep furrows in your forehead. The excess skin can activate forehead wrinkles. Eyelid surgery helps to remove the excess skin and improves your forehead wrinkles and fine lines leading to a smoother facial appearance.
Dark circles under your eyes can result from loss of bony and soft tissue volume of the cheek under the eye. They can also be caused by excess eyelid fat that bulges and the shrinkage of pigmented eyelid skin. Eyelid surgery removes excess skin, sculpts fat, redistributes excess fat, and replaces the volume of lost bony and soft tissue.
Eyelid surgery is a minimally invasive treatment where your surgeon makes tiny incisions on your eyelids. The surgeon will make cuts that hide behind the natural folds of your eyelids. After recovery, the incisions become unnoticeable. Eyelid surgery involves a short healing period, which takes about one week. Advanced eyelid techniques like laser blepharoplasty enhance healing with minimal or no scarring.
Eyelid surgery will entirely improve your vision and appearance and boost your confidence. Schedule an appointment with Robert M. Schwarcz, MD, for eyelid surgery to eliminate drooping eyelids.
