You could be the most alert, energetic person on the planet, but puffiness, saggy skin, wrinkles, or bags around the eyes will make you look tired and old. Such a condition can even impair your vision. Replace that droopy squint with a robust glint. Dr. Adams is expert at taking fatigued, dour-looking eyes and making them sparkle.
Blepharoplasty surgery can be performed on the upper or lower eyelid — or both. Upper eyelid surgery is usually best for patients whose main concern is upper eyelids that are saggy or drooping into their eyes, while lower eyelid blepharoplasy surgery focuses on puffiness and extra skin underneath the eyes. Many patients opt to have both procedures in order to maximize the improvement to the eye area.
This procedure can make you look younger, refreshed and less tired by removing excess skin and fat around your eyes. An eyelid lift can also:
- Reduce the appearance of sagging eyelids
- Smooth and minimize large or puffy under-eye bags
- Make it easier to apply eye makeup
- Improve vision obscured by sagging upper eyelids
During your eyelid lift, Dr. Adams will trim away excess skin, fat and muscle to smooth the appearance of your eyelids. While blepharoplasty is often performed by itself, Dr. Adams may also recommend a face lift, brow lift or cosmetic injectables to achieve the best results.
Eyelid lifts are the third most popular type of cosmetic surgery in the United States. Every year, they are performed on thousands of patients who realize that their eyes really determine how they look. If you look fatigued when you’re wide awake, an eyelid lift by Dr. William Adams can help reveal the real you. After surgery, your eyes will look brighter and more alive. Though it won’t stop the aging process, an eyelid lift can improve your facial appearance, increasing your confidence.
An eyelid lift may be right for you if the appearance of your eyelids causes you to look tired, sad or older than you really are. Many candidates have noticed sagging or droopiness caused by heredity or aging, and most wish their eye area appeared tighter or smoother. In some cases, their sagging upper eyelids have started to interfere with their vision. If you consider your upper or lower eyelids to be your “problem areas,” consider blepharoplasty.
