What is Blepharoplasty?

plastic surgery / Uncategorized

It has been said that eyes are the windows to the soul, which also means they are one of the first areas of the face to show signs of aging.  Bags under the eyes and sagging upper eyelids come with age, but can be corrected with an eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty. This popular cosmetic surgery procedure refreshes the appearance of the face and can shave years off of your appearance.

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty dramatically improves the appearance of sagging, tired, and droopy eyes. This is done by removing excess skin and pockets of fat from the upper and lower eyelids. Many patients combine blepharoplasty with other cosmetic procedures to maximize the benefits such as a brow lift, facelift and fillers.

Blepharoplasty Ideal Candidates

Unfortunately, not everyone is an ideal candidate for an eye lift. The right candidate understands that blepharoplasty is performed to remove under-eye bags, correct puffy upper eyelids, and restore vision that is obscured by excess skin and fat in the eyelids. The presence of certain medical conditions can exclude one from having an eyelid lift performed, as patient safety is always Dr. Breister Ghosh’s primary concern.

Ideal candidates for an eyelid lift include those who have:

Puffy upper eyelids

Tired looking eyes

Excess upper eyelid skin
