Can Blepharoplasty Get Rid of Tired-Looking Eyes?
Anyone can be affected by tired-looking eyes, even well-rested and energized individuals. The natural aging process can often cause the eyelids to stretch and the muscles supporting them to weaken. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can be a highly effective procedure that helps correct a variety of cosmetic concerns related to the appearance of the eyes.
Common signs of aging in the upper eyelids include puffiness and eyelid hooding. With upper blepharoplasty, our highly-skilled and board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven Yarinsky, can remove excess skin or fat around the upper eyelids while tightening the remaining skin. Patients often enjoy how their eyes look more open and rejuvenated after an upper eyelid procedure. In the lower eyelids, common signs of aging include dark circles and under-eye bags. Lower blepharoplasty can be performed to address any protruding fat present under the eyes, and tighten and smooth loose skin. The goal for both upper and lower eyelid surgeries is to sculpt and recontour the eye area to revitalize your appearance. During your consultation with Dr. Yarinsky, he will discuss with you your needs and aesthetic desires to determine if treatment is indicated to enhance your upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both.
Blepharoplasty can also be performed for non-cosmetic reasons. Eyelid ptosis occurs when the muscles responsible for supporting and lifting the upper eyelids are loose or weakened. Oftentimes, this can impair an individual’s vision and make it difficult for them to fully open their eyes. For medical concerns like ptosis, eyelid surgery can be a great treatment option to rejuvenate the eye area and restore vision.
