WHAT IS AN EYELID LIFT (BLEPHAROPLASTY)?
When it comes to improving your appearance, and capturing a more youthful look, blepharoplasty is perhaps the best bang for your buck of any cosmetic procedure at The Esthetics Center. Of all the services that we offer, it is also the most common.
As we age, skin loses its elasticity. This, combined with the constant pull of gravity on our bodies, can often result in excess skin collecting on the upper and lower eyelids. In addition to excess skin, our faces are prone to fat bulging from behind our eyelids, as the thin membranes that hold the fat weaken with age. The best way to counteract these effects of aging eyelids is with blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure which will reduce the bagginess from the lower eyelids as well as the excess skin from the upper eyelids. This is done by removing extra skin, muscle and fat from the eyelid area, which will minimize bags around the eyes. This will lead to a much younger appearance— typically, our patients look a decade younger after a blepharoplasty.
This surgery is done for both cosmetic and functional reasons, as not only does it result in a younger look, but it also is an effective way to improve the vision of older patients whose sagging eyelids may be blocking part of their line of sight.
