Excess skin, aging, and drooping are all common factors that influence how your eyelids appear.
Each is completely normal, but if you want a refresher, then you may want to consider blepharoplasty for your lower or upper eyelids.
Dr. William C. Cohen, D.O., uses this safe procedure to refine patients' eyelids. Learn why Orange, CA, visits his plastic surgery practice.
What Is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is an effective plastic surgery used to refine a patient's eyelids. It can cover your upper eyelids, your lower eyelids, or both, depending on your cosmetic goals.
What Qualities Can Blepharoplasty Refine?
Do you have puffy under-eyelids? They look like bags underneath your eyes, and they may become more noticeable over time, especially as you age. They're different from hollows, which can be enhanced using certain fillers. Puffy under-eyelids, on the other hand, can be refined through blepharoplasty.
Over time, the muscles in our eyelids may weaken, causing them to droop. This can lead to additional skin or fat covering your eyes. It may also potentially obstruct your peripheral vision, making it harder for you to see clearly. Dr. Cohen routinely handles cases like these — and he's here to help.
Effects of Aging
With each year, we find new wisdom and make new memories. We wear the effects of those smiles and laughter on our face. While some people love to see their experience shine, others may want a refresh. Eyelid surgery corrects sagging upper eyelids and the bags that form just below the eyes for a more natural and youthful appearance.
Excess upper lid skin can creates a hooded effect on your eyes. Many people are perfectly happy with their natural eyelids. However, if you have wanted to make your eyes appear wider or more open, you may be a good candidate for blepharoplasty. It can also be paired with a brow lift for a more substantial effect.
