You may have noticed that the aging process brings with it more than wisdom. All areas of your body begin to change and this includes your eyelids. Ptosis (drooping eyelids) is especially common as men and women get older. You're also more likely to develop under eye bags, which make you appear tired and older than you actually are. Essentially, your eyes say a lot about your age. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can help reverse signs of aging and could even improve your vision.
Eyelid surgery can correct several issues with your upper and lower eyelids and can do even more when combined with a brow lift. These problems include:
- Under eye bags
- Bulging eyelashes
- Puffy eyelid skin
- Deep furrows
- Drooping upper and lower eyelids
- Skin that hangs over your eyelids and interferes with vision
Are Your Eyelids Affecting Your Vision?
Do you find it increasingly hard to read? Does lifting the skin on your upper eyelid help? If so, you could be a good candidate for a blepharoplasty. The best part is that your health insurance may even cover the cost of your procedure. This cosmetic surgery is considered medically necessary when drooping eyelids actively impede on your eyesight. You may need to undergo a vision test to satisfy your insurance, but our cosmetic surgeon and ophthalmologist—Dr. Pakeman—can give you back your vision and some of your youth.
