What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess skin, fat, and sometimes muscle from the eyelids. It is commonly performed to address droopy or sagging eyelids, remove under-eye bags, and improve the overall appearance of the eyes. The procedure can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, depending on the patient’s specific concerns and desired outcomes.
What is the process?
The process involves administering anesthesia for patient comfort, creating incisions along the natural eyelid creases or lash line, and carefully removing excess skin, fat, and muscle. In some cases, the surgeon may reposition or redistribute fat to achieve a more youthful look. After making the necessary adjustments, the incisions are closed with sutures or surgical glue. During recovery, patients are advised to rest and avoid strenuous activities. Swelling and bruising around the eyes are common but typically subside within a few weeks. The results of blepharoplasty can be a refreshed and revitalized appearance. However, individuals considering this procedure should consult with Dr. Chahin to determine if they are suitable candidates and to understand the potential risks and benefits involved.
Benefits of Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as facial balancing, facelift or brow lift, to achieve a more comprehensive and harmonious outcome.
