As we age, it’s normal to experience droopy or sagging skin around the eyes. But this isn’t always a result of aging—in fact, there are many people who naturally have puffy or sagging eyelids.
If you’ve tried endless eye creams, tea bags and slices of cucumber with no luck of improving the appearance of your eyes, we can help! The specialists at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Associates are here to share the best drooping eyelid treatment.
Blepharoplasty: Drooping Eyelid Treatment
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is the most effective treatment for sagging eyelids and puffy bags below the eyes. While the at-home remedies previously mentioned may seem to improve the appearance of your eyes, the results are only temporary. Eyelid surgery has long-lasting results—helping patients look younger and more awake for 10 years (or more) after their procedure!
How Does Eyelid Surgery Work?
The main purpose of blepharoplasty is to remove excess skin and fat from your upper and/or lower eyelids, as this is what can cause patients to look years older—or more tired than they are! During surgery, Dr. Lazarus makes incisions along the natural creases of your eyelid to minimize scarring and make their appearance less noticeable. The amount of time your procedure will take, as well as the amount of time it will take to recover, will depend on your condition—but a detailed treatment plan will be created for you prior to surgery.
While most patients who opt for eyelid surgery are 35 years of age or older, Dr. Lazarus also treats younger patients who are unhappy with baggy eyelids they’ve acquired genetically.
