Do you have loose skin on your eyelids? Are you having difficulty with your vision due to the sagging of your eyelids? Perhaps you have received comments from your friends and family that you simply appear tired. Do you think that you look tired when you look in the mirror? Do you have bags under your eyes? If your answer to any of these questions is “yes,” then you may be a candidate for a blepharoplasty, which is often called eyelid surgery. A blepharoplasty is one of the most common surgical procedures. It removes small amounts of excess skin, and occasionally fat or muscle, from your eyelids in order to give a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Dr. Julie E. E. Kupersmith MD may recommend eyelid surgery to correct:
- Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or mars the natural contour of the upper eyelid
- Excess fatty deposits in the eyelids
- Bags under the eyes
- Drooping lower eyelids
- Excess skin and wrinkles in the lower eyelid
If you also have some laxity of the skin on your cheeks, you may be a candidate for a blepharoplasty combined with a cheek lift. Surgery is customized for every patient, depending on his or her particular needs. Please contact our office today for more information and to schedule a consultation with our cosmetic surgeon.
