Our society is more conscious of our facial features than ever before, and having drooping, misshapen or malfunctioning eyelids can not only affect your self-esteem, but it could also impair your vision. Eyelid reconstruction can be an effective way to combat the symptoms that could inhibit you from enjoying many of the daily activities that many people take for granted. The staff of the office of Dr. Syed Ahmad in Plano, TX wants to help you determine if eyelid reconstruction is a good fit for you.
Who is a Good Candidate?
If your eyelid bothers you for aesthetic reasons or functional reasons, you most likely can enjoy the benefits of eyelid reconstruction. Both men and women can have this procedure performed for either the upper or lower eyelids. Typically, the age of the patient is about 35 years old, but individuals can have the procedure done at various ages.
Upper Eyelid Reconstruction
A good candidate for upper eyelid surgery has skin that is healthy and has typically positioned eyebrows and eyelid margins. It is preferable to have no eye-related medical issues. Most times, surgeons use the eyelid reconstruction procedure to remove excess skin above the eye, but the surgeon can also remove fat deposits in the corners of the eyes or near the nasal bridge.
Lower Eyelid Reconstruction
A good candidate for lower eyelid surgery has typically positioned eyelids in proportion to the iris, no eye-related medical issues, a small amount of extra skin on the lower lid, and a good lower lid margin.
What Results Can You Expect?
Whether you are experiencing discomfort from the appearance of your eyelids, or you have a functional issue with your eyelids, eyelid reconstruction is an effective treatment that can help you gain the function and appearance you desire from this important facial feature.
Enjoying the benefits of eyelid reconstruction may be just a consultation away. If you would like to schedule your initial consultation, please contact us today at the office of Syed Ahmad, MD in Plano, TX.
