How Can Blepharoplasty Help Me Achieve Younger Eyes?

If your eyes have a puffy appearance or they look baggy and tired, you may want to consider blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to rejuvenate and brighten them. How can blepharoplasty help you achieve younger looking eyes? It gets rid of lines around the eyes and fatty tissue that can make you look older, and gives you a more youthful appearance.

Achieve younger eyes with blepharoplasty

Puffiness around the upper eyelids or bags beneath the eyes, are both signs of too much fatty tissue or loose skin. These factors are often due to the aging process, but may also be the result of genetics or environmental factors.

Blepharoplasty can make your eyes look younger, because it eliminates excess fat and skin that ages the eyes. It also restores the natural contour of the eyelids.

About Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty may be done on both the upper and lower eyelids. In the case of the upper eyelids, the surgeon generally makes the incision along the natural crease, ensuring that the scar is well hidden. For lower eyelid surgery, the incision is made on the inside of the lower lid.

When performing an upper blepharoplasty the plastic surgeon removes excess fatty tissue and skin, in order to get rid of any overhang, and define the upper lid. For the lower blepharoplasty, excess skin is also removed, and the tissue is repositioned. This corrects bagginess and gives the eyes a fuller appearance.

Blepharoplasty is a safe procedure that is usually performed under local anesthesia.
