Bellevue, WA patients who visit with the team of The Stern Center for Aesthetic Surgery already know that our doctor, Dr. Fredric Stern, provides a wide selection of cosmetic procedure that are both surgical and non-surgical. When patients struggle with sagging eyelids, bags under the eyes, or other changes to the eyes and eyelids, they are encouraged by our team to consider eyelid surgery to resolve these issues and improve their youthful appearance.
Why might a patient consider eyelid surgery?
Eyelid surgery, which is medically known as blepharoplasty, is a procedure that can achieve many goals, including:
- Reducing the appearance of bags underneath the lower eyelids
- Remove excess skin from the upper eyelids
- Tighten the eyelid area and reduce sagging that may impede one’s vision
- Reduce the appearance of crow’s feet (lines around the outer edge of the eyes)
The aging process of the eyelids cause the skin to lose its natural elasticity with time. This, in addition to gravity, results in the appearance of excess skin that collects on the upper and lower eyelids. The process also contributes to the appearance of wrinkles and bulges, extra folds of skin, and an impact to one’s vision.
What is done during eyelid surgery?
The procedure varies from patient to patient based on their needs. Some patients have just the upper or lower eyelids addressed, while others may have both lids treated at the same appointment. The procedure is done with incisions made in the folds of the eyelids to reduce the appearance of scarring, and our team works hard to ensure patients are following post-operative instructions to eliminate the risk of infection following treatment.
