There are countless reasons people consider plastic surgery, but by far the most common one is simple: to look younger. It’s such a pleasure helping my patients reveal improved, vibrant versions of themselves. I believe that blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, here at my Connecticut practice is a great option for achieving that younger look. With minimal scars, little downtime, and impressive results, it provides an incomparable bang for your buck.
Eyelid surgery is a versatile procedure that can treat a host of aesthetic and functional concerns. It can easily be performed on the upper lids, lower lids, or both. Some of the most common eyelid concerns that bring patients to my office include:
- Puffy upper eyelids
- Sagginess, sometimes called eyelid ptosis
- Bags beneath the eyes
- Visual disturbances caused by the eyelids
Although eyelid surgery has the potential to completely transform the face all on its own, it really shines when it’s performed in conjunction with another procedure, such as a brow lift or even a facelift. This approach can create a comprehensive transformation that’s truly breathtaking.
“Looking younger” is a double entendre when it comes to eyelid surgery. Not only can it improve your appearance, it can improve your vision, too. Occasionally, the eyelids sag so significantly that they interfere with your vision. Although this isn’t common, it does occur, and blepharoplasty is the best option for restoring your vision while giving your face a youthful boost, too.
