Upper blepharoplasty eyelid lift
Are you considering upper blepharoplasty eyelid lift in Charlotte? Droopy or sagging eyelids are a major reason why many people consider eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, to remove and tighten excess eyelid skin. The goal is to achieve a more alert and youthful appearance. Blepharoplasty can usually elevate an upper eyelid margin slightly, to correct the heaviness of the excessive skin that is “weighing down” the upper eyelid, causing it to droop.
What Is Cosmetic Blepharoplasty?
Sometimes blepharoplasty is performed to improve vision or to aid people who wear glasses or contacts. Cosmetic blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that is not medically necessary, and is performed solely to improve your appearance. Typically, our upper, and sometimes lower eyelids, may become droopy or baggy as part of the aging process. Our eyebrows also may sag or droop as a part of the aging process.
Cause of droopy eyelids
In some individuals, the eyelid skin stretches, muscles weaken, and fat pockets become more prominent. This is sometimes a hereditary condition that runs in a family. Cosmetically, these conditions can detract from our overall appearance of our eyes and face, causing us to look tired or older. A number of different types of surgeons can perform cosmetic blepharoplasty, but facial plastic surgeons, and ear, nose and throat surgeons typically perform cosmetic eyelid surgery.
Are you a good candidate for eyelid surgery?
The following are some very good reasons why you may want to consider eyelid surgery:
1. Excessive skin obscures the natural fold of the upper eyelids
2. Loose upper eyelid skin that impairs your vision
3. A puffy appearance to the upper eyelids that makes your eyes look tired and sad
4. ‘Crepe paper’ type skin that causes lower eyelid wrinkles
5. You have bags and dark circles under the eyes
6. The upper eye surface is too small or not smooth enough to apply makeup
If you are in good overall health, and you have a positive attitude, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.
