"My eyes make me look so tired." Eyelid blepharoplasty can fix that.
By Dr. Sutton Graham on November 13, 2009
Some times patients notice it themselves. Sometimes it's because someone asks, "Why do always look so tired? Are you getting enough sleep?"
People judge our emotions and health by how we look to them. Hanging, loose upper eyelid skin or lower eyelid bags cause others to assume we are not our best.
Eyelid tuck, eye lift, or its medical name "blepharoplasty" is the procedure that is done to correct those characteristics. Under light anesthesia, or occasionally local, extra skin is removed, fat pockets are smoothed, crinkly skin is tightened with laser, etc. These procedures may be done only to the upper or the lower lids, or both. They may be combined with other procedures a patient desires like browlift, facelift, necklift, lip enhancement, facial fat grafting, etc.
Our goal is to give you a natural improvement in your appearance. We avoid techniques that distort, pull tightly, or unfavorably alter the shape of your eye area. We want everyone to notice how great you look, not notice that you look odd or different.
