Am I a good candidate for eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)?
Any one, or combination, of the following conditions may indicate that you are a good candidate for eyelid surgery:
- Excess skin obscuring the natural fold of the upper eyelids
- Loose skin hanging over the edge of the upper eyelids, perhaps impairing vision
- A puffy appearance of the upper eyelids, making the eyes look tired
- Excess skin and fine, “crepe paper type” wrinkles of the upper or lower eyelids
- Bags and dark circles under the eyes
- Creases or folds in the lower eyelids
Aesthetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) can usually correct these problems. This simple surgery can tighten the skin, smooth the wrinkles and recreate a youthful, rested, healthy appearance.
Other treatment may also need to be considered. If the upper eyelid condition is accompanied by sagging of the eyebrows, then a forehead lift may be recommended. Smoothing of the crow’s feet may be accomplished with Botox® or Xeomin, or laser resurfacing procedures. Dr. McBride & Dr. Sanovich can provide further information if you have an interest in any of these additional procedures.
