Benefits of Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift)

by DrBanthia on September 14, 2012

Eyes are the very first clue to one’s age – as your eyes are usually what another person first sees.  It goes without saying that the eyes are the window to a person’s mood, attitude, and overall personality.  Wouldn’t you want yours to project the best image of yourself?

If you have considered getting a blepharoplasty, your answer is probably ‘yes.’ But more than that, blepharoplasty offers many more benefits than just letting people see your beautiful peepers!

Blepharoplasty could involve both lower eyelid surgery and upper eyelid surgery or one of these depending on what you may need.  The procedure can often impact bags under the eyes, an overall tired appearance or even vision impairment caused by sagging eyelids.  Blepharoplasty requires precision and experience  — both of which  are characteristic of the expert facial plastic surgeons at Reviance®.  Eyelids have one of the most complex anatomical structures in the human body – so trust your eyes to those who have completed hundreds of eyelid procedures.

Depending on your specific wants and needs, this procedure can improve vision if you have visual field defects, rid the excess fatty deposits or puffiness in the upper eyelids, tighten loose or sagging skin that can cause folds and therefore impair vision, remove or decrease excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid, get rid of the omnipresent “bags” under the eyes, and correct droopiness in the lower eyelids to better show off eye color.

Blepharoplasty is an outpatient procedure, which means you can go home right after the procedure (with someone else to drive you, of course). Patients can resume their normal activities in about five to seven days and the inevitable bruising can be hidden by sunglasses, which is also recommended to protect the eyes. The bruising disappears shortly, but should be expected after any surgery.

At Reviance®, we have perfected what is a relatively new way to improve both upper and lower eyelids with the Laser Eyelid Lift.  This procedure is NONSURGICAL yet can often give you results similar to that of surgery.  Be sure to ask if you are a candidate for this novel, revolutionary procedure!
