People may appear angry, older, or sad because of old and tired looking eyes. However, you can treat these effects of aging around the eyes with blepharoplasty plastic surgery. Blepharoplasty can be performed on both upper and lower eyelids.
It can help improve the aesthetic and functional aspects of the eyes. Patients, at times, may require both types of surgery together. Eyelid surgery can be used for correcting partial vision obstruction as well. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides eyelid surgery to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding communities.
Benefits of Eyelid Surgery
These are a few benefits of the eyelid lift cosmetic surgery procedure:
- Eliminated puffiness in the upper eyelid by removing fat pockets around the eyes
- Removes folds, sagging skin, and lines from the lower eyelids
- Treat drooping upper lids that may cause vision obstruction
- Address bags under the eyes
- Treat visible white under the iris that may occur because of drooping lower lids
Upper Blepharoplasty Procedure
Aging along with other factors can result in the eyelid muscles becoming loose. It can cause the lid tissues to stretch and sag because of loss of elasticity. Upper eyelids may also appear droopy and wrinkles making you look older.
In such situations, the eyelid lift plastic surgery procedure can be helpful. It can address these concerns for restoring a rested and youthful looking eye appearance. Certain patients suffer from severely droopy upper eyelids called ptosis. This can also result in aging lines over the upper lids.
Your eyes may appear partially closed because of droopy upper eyelids even when you are awake. Ptosis can cause this distortion in eye appearance. Upper blepharoplasty has shown successful results in treating these conditions.
An incision will be made by your surgeon on the natural contours of the eyelid. This will be made in a discreet location. The incision will be used for eliminating loose upper eyelid skin. Subsequently, fine sutures will be used for sealing the incisions.
Lower Blepharoplasty Procedure
Your eyelids can appear tired and puffy because of weakened muscles and loose tissues. The lid skin may appear rough and wrinkled as well. This condition can be improved by lower eyelid surgery. Your surgeon will place a small incision within the lid or on the skin to remove surplus skin. This will also help in reducing the puffy under eye bags.
The incisions will be placed just underneath the lid margin for hiding any future scarring. Underlying weak muscles will be tightened using these incisions. Youthful looking eyes can be produced by removing and redistributing excess fatty pockets in the area.
Recovery Following Eyelid Surgery
You would be asked to use ice therapy following the procedure for the first 48 hours. This will help the inflammation subside and make you feel at ease. Most patients can successfully resume their routine after a week of recovery.
Make sure you protect your eyes from direct sun exposure for a few months. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon receives patients from Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and nearby areas for eyelid surgery.
