An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, is much the same as a traditional facelift, just on a smaller scale. The procedure involves lifting up the skin on the upper and/or lower eyelid. This corrects problems such as baggy eyelids, drooping upper lids, and an imbalanced look between the right and left eye. However, not everyone in Plano is a good candidate for this procedure. It’s also important to understand that blepharoplasty may not even be the most suitable treatment. It really depends on what is causing the sagging and drooping to begin with.
If you feel you might be a suitable candidate for this procedure and are concerned about your appearance because of tired, droopy eyelids, we will be happy to consult with you. We happily serve clientele in Plano and other northern Dallas suburbs.
Causes and Symptoms of Droopy Eyes
Sometimes this is caused by neurotransmission problems. Nerve damage, whether hereditary or otherwise, can cause a loss of contraction ability in the muscles that control the movement of the facial skin around the eyes. If this is the problem, blepharoplasty cannot help. On the other hand, if baggy eyelids or upper lids that droop or sag are the result of fatty tissue buildup or skin that is no longer firm because of decreased collagen production, an eyelid lift may be the perfect solution. A consultation with us in Plano is all that is necessary to find out if this procedure is right for you.
How It’s Performed
The details of each procedure vary from patient to patient. During a blepharoplasty procedure in Plano, our surgeon may remove excess skin and fat and reposition the remaining skin for a smoother, tauter surface. Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both, depending on the situation.
Just as is the case with a facelift, an eyelid lift procedure yields results that can last for years. Recovery time is relatively swift. This type of surgical procedure not only improves the overall look of the eyes, but it can also correct the unbalanced look so often experienced by middle-aged adults, where one eye looks more level than the other. It can even improve vision in cases where excess skin is blocking a person’s eyesight.
