The delicate skin around the eyes is often one of the first places to show signs of aging. Blepharoplasty can give you brighter, younger-looking eyes. The common name for blepharoplasty is an eyelid lift, but this procedure can do much more than lifting loose skin. Its results can take ten or even twenty years away from the appearance of your eyes.
What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is an eyelid lift surgery that treats many common problems in the eye area. Dr. Lanfranchi can perform an upper blepharoplasty, lower blepharoplasty, or both. He considers upper blepharoplasty his favorite procedure because it gives such youthful-looking, rejuvenated results with minimal downtime.
Top 7 Reasons to Consider Blepharoplasty
If you have concerns with the appearance of your eye area, blepharoplasty may offer the best solution. Whatever your reasons for choosing blepharoplasty, your results will make you look well-rested, lively, and refreshed.
1. Hooded Eyes
Drooping upper eyelid skin can give the appearance of hooded eyes. This drooping skin can make putting on eye makeup almost impossible for women. The hooded appearance makes you look tired and shadowed.
2. Eyelid Wrinkles
As eyelid skin loses its elasticity, you may begin to see wrinkles form. Blepharoplasty will use an incision hidden in the eyelid crease to remove loose skin for a smoother, less wrinkled look.
3. Obstructed Vision
Sagging or drooping eyelid skin can become severe enough to start obstructing your peripheral vision. You may not even realize your vision has gradually become hindered until your sagging skin has been lifted.
4. Undereye Drooping
Drooping skin under the eyes can add years to your facial appearance. Blepharoplasty can lift and tighten the skin to give this undereye area a smoother, brighter, more youthful appearance. You will see improvements in dark shadows and undereye wrinkles.
5. Fatty Deposits
You can develop deposits of fat in your upper or lower eyelid area. This fat can cause undereye bags and bulges. Blepharoplasty can remove excess fat and restore the normal fat pads to their proper position.
6. Dark Circles
Lifting and tightening the eyelid skin can rejuvenate the eye area and reduce the appearance of shadows and dark circles. The removal and restoration of fat remove the bulges under the eyes that contribute to dark undereye circles.
7. Looking Tired
If you have heard enough times that you look tired, a blepharoplasty can make sure you have heard it for the last time. Blepharoplasty brightens, lifts, and smooths the eye area, eliminating wrinkles and shadows, so you look alert and awake.
Am I a Good Candidate for Blepharoplasty?
Any of the seven reasons above may make you a good candidate for blepharoplasty. Ideal candidates want to rejuvenate their eye area and have reasonable expectations for what the procedure can do for them.
Stellar Service from Start to Finish
Two months ago I had a lower lifestyle facial lift. I was apprehensive, but it was well worth the effort and expense. Dr. Lanfranchi and his entire staff were kind, caring and very professional, from the first meeting to the follow up appointments.
The procedure is done under a local, not general anesthetic, and it was easy. I healed quickly and am very satisfied with the results.
His fee was very reasonable. Any further facial work I want done, I will be sure to come back here.
