Given that the skin around your eyelids tends to be thinner and more delicate than the rest of the face, it’s quite common for the eyelids to begin drooping and sagging, often being one of the earliest signs of aging to present themselves. Sagging around the eyelids can be caused by anything from sun damage, smoking, obesity, or genetics, but the end result is often the same – drooping, bulging eyelids that cause an aged, fatigued appearance.
More About the Blepharoplasty Procedure
Your eyelid surgery procedure will be performed under local anesthesia with sedation, but if you find yourself to be especially anxious, general anesthesia is always an option, as well. The surgery can take anywhere from 45 minutes to two hours, depending on whether you’re treating your upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both.
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty involves an incision which is made along the natural crease of your eyelid, making it difficult to notice, once the healing process is complete. Once the incision is made, Anthony A. Admire will reposition fatty deposits, tighten muscles and tissue, or remove excess skin, to leave the eye looking more youthful and rejuvenated.
Lower eyelid surgery involves an incision just below the lash line, allowing for the removal of excess skin or fatty deposits. Once the procedure is complete, Anthony A. Admire will carefully close your incisions with sutures, before wrapping them in gauze, allowing the area to heal properly.
