What is blepharoplasty?
- Posted on: Aug 15 2020
A quick peek in the mirror may make adult men and women feel less confident in their appearance due to sagging eyelids. When patients are unhappy with excess skin and tissue on the upper lid that is causing them to look tired or older than they feel, it may be time for them to consider working with a plastic surgeon to address this area of concern. For most patients, a blepharoplasty is necessary to tighten the eyelid and provide patients with a more alert and aware appearance than before.
What is the blepharoplasty procedure?
Dr. Armen Serebrakian of the Bay area describes the blepharoplasty as any procedure that is performed on the upper and/or lower eyelids. The eyelids have a tendency to droop and sag with time, and in some instances, can impact a patient’s field of vision. When this happens, the removal of excess skin and tightening of the eyelid is often the best solution. Our plastic surgeon uses proven and innovative techniques to correct problems such as puffing, wrinkling, and sagging of the eyelids to achieve a more youthful, refreshed, and natural appearance. Th procedure can eb combined with other plastic surgery procedures, and is often done in conjunction with a brow lift.
Is blepharoplasty considered cosmetic or functional?
When patients are seeking an option to improve the appearance of the eyes, they are often going to be considering cosmetic surgery. However, there are patients who have sagging eyelids that significantly impact their field of vision. This situation is considered more of a functional surgery than a cosmetic surgery, as it is medically necessary to improve vision. Both versions of treatment are available at the Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center.
Who is a candidate?
Any adult patient with excess skin tissue or drooping skin in the eye area will want to consult with our doctor to decide if they are a good candidate for blepharoplasty.
