Top 5 Benefits of Blepharoplasty

Your thin eyelid skin is often one of the first areas to show signs of aging. You may start to notice sagging, drooping, and undereye bags that make you look tired. Blepharoplasty corrects these problems and restores brighter, more youthful eyes. It continues to grow in popularity as people discover how much this procedure can rejuvenate the whole face. 

What is Blepharoplasty? 

Blepharoplasty, or an eyelid lift, is a surgical procedure that lifts and restores a more youthful shape to the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. Dr. Farole performs blepharoplasty to correct drooping, wrinkles, and puffiness. This procedure can even restore vision that has been blocked by sagging skin. Anyone bothered by signs of aging around the eyes may benefit from blepharoplasty to smooth and tighten the skin.

Top 5 Benefits of Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty ranks among the top five most popular procedures in cosmetic surgery. People choose an eyelid lift for a variety of reasons, including:

  1. Remove loose, wrinkled eyelid skin
  2. Smooth undereye puffiness
  3. Look more awake and alert
  4. Improved vision
  5. Look and feel younger

Upper Blepharoplasty vs. Lower Blepharoplasty

If drooping, wrinkled skin above your eyes makes you look older, you may benefit from an upper blepharoplasty. People with undereye bags and puffiness may need a lower blepharoplasty. Since many people have all of these problems, it’s common to have both simultaneously

Upper Blepharoplasty

An upper blepharoplasty removes loose skin from the upper eyelid. It uses a small incision hidden in an eyelid crease so it will become invisible when it heals. Dr. Farole performs upper eyelid lids under local anesthesia. Depending on the complexity, the surgery may take less than an hour. 

Lower Blepharoplasty

This procedure corrects undereye bags and puffiness by tightening loose skin and repositioning or removing fat to reduce the appearance of tired, drooping eyes. Lower blepharoplasty usually happens under general anesthesia. Lower eyelid surgery is more complex and may take somewhat longer.

What is Recovery Like After Blepharoplasty?

Most people have some bruising and swelling that lasts up to a week. Most people can return to work within the first week. You can resume most normal activities after two weeks. Dr. Farole will provide an aftercare plan to guide you through a smooth recovery. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Blepharoplasty?

If you have drooping, tired-looking eyes, you might be a good candidate for blepharoplasty. Dr. Farole will assess your skin and determine whether blepharoplasty is right for you. He may also recommend a brow lift or another procedure if he thinks this will make you even happier with your results. 

Dr. Anthony Farole is the best. I came in very scared and afraid. Dr. Farole and his wonderful staff were very patient with me and helped calm me down. They reassured me that i would be fine and took very good care of me. I felt no pain and the procedure went very smooth. Thank you so much for a job well done!
