The procedure to remove excess fat, skin and muscles from the upper and/or lower eyelids in order to rejuvenate them is called Blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty has helped many men and women of varying ages achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance. The Blepharoplasty procedure, also called an Eyelid Lift, can help to reduce and eliminate lines, creases, wrinkles, puffy bags and sagging skin around the eyes that can make you appear older and more run-down than you are or feel. The Blepharoplasty does not resolve crow’s feet wrinkles, dark under-eye circles or lift a sagging brow, so in some cases, with patients where these are also concerns, the Blepharoplasty procedure may be performed in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as a Brow Lift or Face Lift or Dermal Fillers. Take a look at our online before and after photo gallery to see actual patients who’ve undergone Blepharoplasty to see the kind of results possible. Keep in mind that each patient comes in with their own individual goals and concerns. No two results will be exactly alike, just as no two patients are exactly alike. If you are interested in learning more about how the Blepharoplasty procedure works, what the recovery is like, and to find out if you may be a good candidate for the procedure, contact our office to schedule your confidential consultation with Dr. Sundine today.
