The blepharoplasty procedure can help patients turn back the clock, leaving them looking younger and more refreshed. This surgery is best for those who have tired, puffy eyes or sagging skin above the eyes.
Who Is a Good Candidate For Eyelid Surgery?
Good candidates for eyelid surgery include:
- Healthy individuals with no medical conditions that can impair healing
- Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic goals
- Individuals without serious eye conditions
The appearance of a drooping upper lid may also be due to relaxation of the forehead skin and eyebrows. Sometimes stretching out of the upper eyelid muscle may cause a drooping eyelid. This is called eyelid ptosis and requires a different surgical treatment. Your plastic surgeon will evaluate your facial anatomy thoroughly and discuss what procedures might best remedy your concerns.
