Have you noticed that the skin around your eyes is starting to look wrinkled and droopy? Or have your droopy eyelids been getting in the way of your vision? Blepharoplasty may be right for you! Blepharoplasty is the surgical repair of the eyelid, and can be performed for cosmetic reasons, functional reasons, or both. At Takle Eye Group, our cosmetic surgeons are highly trained and very skilled in blepharoplasty, and our patients are loving the results.
As you age, your eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them begin to weaken. This results in excess fat gathering above and below your eyelids. This muscle weakness also causes sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids and bags under your eyes. This can cause you to appear tired and older, and in some cases, cause your vision to be blocked by sagging eyelids. Blepharoplasty can reduce or eliminate these issues, while allowing for a more youthful, alert appearance.
What to Expect
Blepharoplasty is performed in an outpatient setting. One of our skilled cosmetic surgeons at Takle Eye Group will inject numbing medication into your eyelids, in addition to administering intravenous medication to help you relax. This will make you groggy.
During the procedure, the surgeon will cut along the fold of the eyelid, remove some excess skin, muscle and fat, and close the cut. For the lower lid, the surgeon makes a cut just below the lashes in your eye’s natural crease or inside of the lower lid. The surgeon then removes or redistributes excess fat, muscle and sagging skin, and closes the cut.
After the procedure, you spend time in a recovery room, where you will be monitored for complications. You can leave later that day to recuperate at home.
Our patients at Takle Eye Group have seen amazing results with blepharoplasty, reporting a more rested and youthful appearance and more self-confidence. If you are looking for the best surgeon for your blepharoplasty, call Takle Eye Group for your consultation today!
