Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a highly rewarding procedure that gives the eyes, and sometimes the whole face, a younger, more alert appearance. Plastic surgeons in Lafayette, LA, where I practice (and throughout the country) perform eyelid surgery on a routine basis. If you think your face could use refreshing, consider these 3 benefits of eyelid surgery:
- A better view: Eyelid surgery is often not a merely cosmetic procedure; it can actually improve your ability to see. Loose skin above the eyes can cause “hooding” and potentially impair vision. Blepharoplasty corrects those issues.
- The whole package: Your surgeon can perform surgery on both the upper and lower eyelids simultaneously. Some patients have concerns about the skin either above or below their eyes, but many want to treat, for example, drooping eyelids and under-eye bags.
- Invisible incisions: Eyelid surgery incisions are hidden along the natural creases of your eyelids, so there are no visible scars after surgery — only firmer, smoother skin and a more alert, youthful appearance.
