What is Blepharoplasty?
The eyes have been noted for their ability to reveal people’s thoughts and emotions. Unfortunately, under-eye circles, puffiness, and bags around the eyes can portray negative emotions, such as anger, sadness, exhaustion, or frustration, even when a person is feeling good. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can correct these problems.
At our Clinique Dallas office, our doctors can perform eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to help patients improve the appearance of the area surrounding the eyes. Through eyelid surgery, both the upper and lower lids can be tightened and smoothed. Whether combined with a facelift or performed on its own, eyelid surgery can help patients look more youthful and rested.
Although most patients who choose to undergo eyelid surgery do so to minimize the effects of aging, the procedure can be performed on younger patients as well. Individuals whose genetics have left them with excess skin or puffiness that makes them look fatigued might choose to have eyelid surgery performed while they are still in their 20s. It is also important to note that blepharoplasty is not only beneficial for cosmetic reasons; many people decide to undergo eyelid surgery to improve obstructed vision caused by drooping eyelids.
