Fat deposits in your eyelids can make them appear droopy, tired, and older. They can be present at any age and tend to get worse with age. You do not have to give in. Eyelid surgery, also known as an eye lift or blepharoplasty, is a simple cosmetic procedure that can make you look younger and more alert.
How It Works
Eyelid surgery involves removing extra fat, loose skin, and loose muscle from your upper and lower eyelids. It is done through small incisions in your eyelids, which are carefully placed to minimize any appearance of scars after the procedure. The tenderness and swelling should only last a few days, and you will see results as soon as the swelling goes down. The stitches will be removed three to five days after the procedure.
While the procedure itself does not get rid of wrinkles known as crow’s feet, it can be done at the same time as other procedures that do. Examples include laser resurfacing and pulsed light procedures. Talk to your surgeon during your consultation to decide on any other procedures that will help you achieve your cosmetic goals. Dr. Fletcher is a compassionate surgeon who wants to give you the facial appearance that gives you confidence and pride in your everyday life.
