An upper eyelid correction involves the removal of excess skin and fat. The surgeon can also enhance the shape of your eyes. Because the scar falls precisely in the crease of the eye, it is barely noticeable later on.
Suitable candidates for a blepharoplasty
As our bodies change as we age, our facial skin is no exception. Our skin gradually loses its elasticity and excess fat can gather on the upper and lower eyelids, which can cause the well known sagging eyes and make you look older. In some cases, bulging, droopy eyelids can even interfere with your vision.
Most of these symptoms are associated with age but in some cases, they can also be inherited, which means you may develop them already at a younger age.
Luckily, anyone who suffers from these symptoms can be a good candidate for a blepharoplasty. Your surgeon will be able to determine and recommend if this procedure is the right one for you. Often a combination of treatments can be recommended to achieve the best results.
