What Can Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoploasty) Do for Me?

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can correct a wide range of cosmetic concerns that contribute to a tired or older appearance. The upper blepharoplasty procedure is best known for lifting and tightening sagging upper eyelid skin. The lower blepharoplasty addresses loose skin and removes puffy bags located beneath the eyes. An eyelid lift can even be used to treat crepey skin texture and fine lines in the treatment area.

Most patients who are interested in this surgery want to look younger and more refreshed. In addition, it can simplify makeup application and correct obscured vision, and offer other amazing benefits.

How Do I Decide Whether I Need an Upper Eyelid Lift or a Brow Lift?

Both of these procedures are capable of creating a more youthful and vibrant appearance. The right option for you depends on your goals. An upper eyelid lift is ideal for treating sagging eyelid skin. Meanwhile, a brow lift will correct sagging or asymmetrical eyebrows. It can also smooth lines and wrinkles on your forehead, as well as improve drooping eyelids worsened by sagging brow.

Keep in mind that many people choose to pair these surgeries. The combination of an upper eyelid lift and a brow lift can correct signs of aging to rejuvenate the entire upper face. 

Is It Ok To Have Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery After PRK or LASIK?

You can still have cosmetic eyelid surgery after undergoing a laser vision correction procedure. Patients who have had PRK or LASIK in the past are often good candidates for an eyelid lift.

The only catch is that you can’t schedule the surgeries too close together. It is important to give your eyes enough time to heal. Our surgeon will provide more details during your consultation.

Can Eyelid Surgery Be Medically Necessary?

A blepharoplasty is not only for cosmetic purposes. There are times when eyelid surgery is medically necessary. For example, when the upper eyelids sag enough to obscure a person’s vision. This excess skin can lead to a decreased visual field as well as issues like headaches.

Eyelid surgery performed for medical reasons can have functional benefits. It can improve vision-related quality of life. Dr. Stern can assist in determining if your needs are for medical or cosmetic purposes.
