More youthful & rested appearance
Blepharoplasty is a procedure most commonly utilized by people who desire a more youthful and rested appearance of the eyes. This procedure may also widen one’s visual fields if excessive upper lid skin has partially blocked his or her vision. Eyelid operations are not used to remove or erase wrinkle lines. They will, however, soften wrinkle lines.
Eyelid surgery is done on an outpatient basis under sedation and local or general anesthesia. The process is relatively noninvasive and patients typically see a full recovery after a few weeks. During a Blepharoplasty operation, incisions are made where the natural crease should be in the upper lids and below the lash line in the lower lids. This helps mask scarring that may result from the procedure. After the incisions have been made, excess fat and skin are removed.
