One of the most common questions we get from our Dallas clients concerns eyelid surgery. This type of cosmetic corrective surgery is rather simple to perform, and the results can last for years. Known as blepharoplasty, the procedure is actually quite similar to a facelift or brow lift in terms of how it’s performed. The skin is pulled so that it lays flatter, and in most cases, some subdermal fat is removed.
Baggy eyelids that show wrinkles are the result of environmental factors, a loss of collagen in the skin, and the accumulation of fat. The latter usually occurs on the lower lids. Both the upper and lower lids can be enhanced with ease during a blepharoplasty procedure.
Should I Consider Blepharoplasty?
Ask yourself a few questions. Are my upper eyelids drooping to such a degree that my eyesight is affected? Are the upper lids becoming wrinkled? Are the lower lids drooping enough to produce shadowing? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, you may be a suitable candidate for cosmetic eyelid surgery in Dallas.
It’s important to have realistic goals. Blepharoplasty won’t correct dark circles below the eyes if the discoloration is within the skin itself. However, it will correct small wrinkles on the upper lid, and it will eliminate the deep sag of the lower lid.
A Look at the Procedure
After consulting with the client, we will know exactly how much tissue needs to be removed. We’ll have thoroughly examined the eyes and will know how much the skin needs to be raised in order to achieve a balanced, youthful, attentive posture. The details of the procedure vary from patient to patient based on a variety of factors. After a full recovery, the eyes are now balanced, the sagging is gone, and the facial features as a whole appear more youthful.
