Your eyes have the fantastic ability to convey your inner spirit. Unfortunately, as the skin on the eyelids is among the thinnest on the body, the eyelids are often the first to show signs of aging. When this occurs, your youthful vitality is replaced with a tired or even haggard appearance. However, this worn-out appearance can be combated by blepharoplasty, which addresses excess skin, fatty tissues, and muscles from the eyelids that contribute to sagging, drooping, or puffiness.

Frequently Asked Questions
Ideal candidates for blepharoplasty suffer from excess tissue on the upper and lower eyelids that obscures their vision. Candidates should be in good general health and have realistic expectations of their results. Patients who suffer from glaucoma, dry eyes, and hyperthyroidism may not be good candidates; however, Dr. Wilson will better be able to determine options for these individuals during the consultation.
Blepharoplasty results are long lasting, if not permanent. However, no surgery can stop the progression and effects of aging. The skin and tissue that is removed during the procedure, though, is gone for good, and any future aging will be less noticeable than if the surgery was not performed.
Blepharoplasty is performed under general anesthesia to ensure patient comfort.
Blepharoplasty can be combined with a facelift or neck lift to complete your facial rejuvenation. Most commonly, though, blepharoplasty is combined with a brow lift, as these two procedures often go hand in hand. Treating the eyelids without addressing a lax brow or forehead can hinder the results given by blepharoplasty.
It is sometimes difficult to know if your aging eyes are the result of aging eyelids or an aging brow, as they can often create similar symptoms. During your consultation, Dr. Wilson will examine the root of your concerns and advise you on which procedure will best meet your needs.
