The skin around the eyes is one of the first areas of the face to show signs of aging. It’s not unusual to see hooded upper eyelids or saggy, puffy lower lids appearing when you are in your 30′s. Heredity plays a big part. Droopy, down-turned eyes, overhanging upper lids, puffy, baggy lower lids often run in families. Droopy upper eyelid skin can make you look older, tired and can sometimes even impair your vision. An eyelid lift or blepharoplasty can correct these issues and remove the puffiness and bags under the eyes that make you look older and more tired than you are. Blepharoplasty can deliver a refreshed appearance, with a younger, firmer eye area. The eyelid surgery can address:
- Drooping upper lids
- Unequal or different shaped upper lids
- Impaired vision from excess skin
- Puffy lower lids
In the initial consultation, Dr. Crabtree will use the time to get to know you, learn about your expectations and discuss a plan to achieve your goals. During your consultation Dr. Crabtree will assess which of the four eyelids (top and bottom for both eyes) require the procedure. Prior to surgery you will have a good understanding of the procedure, plan and recovery.
