An eye lift, or blepharoplasty, can address a variety of issues, both practical and cosmetic. For certain patients, an eye lift may be performed in conjunction with another procedure, such as a forehead lift, to alleviate wrinkles or tighten the skin. Here are some general indicators that an eye lift may be a good option:
If you have unwanted, bothersome puffiness around the lower region of the eye, an eye lift may be a good choice.
If excess skin above the eye hinders your vision, you may be a good candidate for an eye lift.
Plastic surgery for the region around the eyes may be helpful for aging patients, who find the extra skin around the eyes to become increasingly bothersome with age.
It is advisable to consult with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, who can address your specific questions and help you make an informed choice.
