Have you ever heard the term blepharoplasty used by Denver women and men? You may or may not be familiar with what this term means, and what the procedure can do to improve your overall appearance. Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure frequently performed in our office. This procedure is designed to enhance and rejuvenate the eye area by removing excess skin and fat, as well as tightening the underlying muscles.
When performing blepharoplasty, your surgeon will either address your upper eyelid area, lower eyelid area, or, in some cases, both regions. Having excess fat and skin in the upper eyelid area can contribute to a tired or even angry appearance. In addition, some patients say that excess “hooding” of the eye area causes their vision to become obstructed. Once these concerns are corrected, many patients appear more youthful and vibrant, while those who experience “hooding” may have improved vision.
If you have bags underneath the eyes that lead to a tired appearance, lower blepharoplasty may help. Your surgeon will create an incision and remove any excess skin and fat. Then, the underlying muscles are tightened, resulting in an alert and refreshed eye appearance.
In general, blepharoplasty is a satisfying procedure because recovery is normally very smooth and scarring is concealed within the lash line.
