Who is suitable for Eyelid Surgery?
Generally speaking, anyone who has signs of ageing in the eyelid area, as a result of excess skin or droopy eyelids are a good candidate for upper blepharoplasty surgery. The skin of the eyelids can become loose, saggy and hang over the eye obstructing vision. In upper eyes it is a hooded appearance and in the lower eyes it presents as bags and dark circles under the eyes.
Can Blepharoplasty remove wrinkles and dark circles around the eyes?
Eyelid surgery only addresses excess skin and fat around the eyes. However, since the skin does tighten, some fine lines may be reduced but not all. If your dark circles were being caused by large undereye bags, there might be a slight improvement.
Do I need Upper Eyelid Surgery or a Brow Lift?
This will depend on whether the primary concern is excess skin on the upper eyelids or if the brow’s position has lowered over time. If excess eyelid skin is the problem, eyelid surgery is the solution. If the brow needs to be lifted, a browlift (surgical or through injectables) is the solution.
Are Blepharoplasty Results Permanent?
It is uncommon for a patient to require a second eyelid lift but it is possible. However, since the ageing process will continue, eyelid skin will slowly start to sag again over time.
