When it comes to your face and first impressions, it’s all about your eyes. If you have excess, hanging skin covering the natural fold of the upper eyelids, or loose skin hanging down from the upper eyelids over the eyelashes, you should consider correcting these problems with eyelid surgery. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can be performed on either or both of your upper and lower eyelids. Your facial plastic surgeon can determine if you are a candidate based upon a preoperative evaluation. The evaluation includes factors such as your facial muscle structure, bone structure, and the symmetry of your eyebrows. Your surgeon will make recommendation as to how much skin, muscle, and/or fat should be removed.
Select a surgeon you can trust
It’s important to choose your surgeon based on his or her experience, education, and certification.
Members of the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery are experienced and qualified to perform this aesthetic procedure. After you have found the Charlotte’s most experienced facial plastic surgeon, you will need to make an office appointment to set up your consultation.
Your initial consultation appointment
During your preliminary consultation, you will have the chance to discuss your cosmetic goals. Your surgeon will explain what blepharoplasty can do for you, and evaluate you as a candidate. Once the surgeon understands your goals, he or she can more clearly suggest additional or related procedures. It is important to be completely honest during your consultation. This is the only way your surgeon can help you set realistic goals. Bring photos of yourself at an earlier age. This can serve as a point of reference for discussing your goals. Be fully prepared to answer these questions about your history with any noninvasive cosmetic procedures, the outcome you expect from the surgery, and your primary motivation in undergoing eyelid surgery. You will also need to tell the surgeon about previous surgeries, your past and present medical conditions, allergic reactions, and current medications.
