The eyes are our most engaging facial feature. They draw attention from others and convey our deepest emotions. The eyes are the key to facial beauty. As we age, the eyelid skin loosens, sags and bags occur. Such facial aging can make you look more tired and older that you feel.
Blepharoplasty is designed to rejuvenate your eyes by removing excess skin (and sometimes removing or rearranging fat) from the upper and lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty can correct drooping upper lids that tend to sag with time and the puffy bags below your eyes.
Blepharoplasty can be performed as a single procedure, or in conjunction with other facial surgery such as a brow lift or a facelift. The procedure takes about 1-2 hours to perform and the recovery lasts about 1-2 weeks. After surgery, these changes can dramatically freshen up the face and cure that tired, angry appearance that can occur with aging.
