What is Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)?
Eyelid surgery is a facial rejuvenation procedure that can brighten your whole face and restore a more youthful appearance. Although the procedure changes only the eyelids, the results can enhance your entire eye area and face.
You may be a good candidate for eyelid surgery if you are unhappy with one or more of the following eye characteristics:
- Sagging upper eyelid skin
- Sagging lower eyelids
- Drooping upper eyelids that impair your vision
- Bags beneath your eyes
- Fat deposits and puffiness of the eyelids
If your upper eyelid sagginess is impairing your vision, your health insurance may provide coverage for the procedure if it’s medically necessary to restore your vision. Our staff can discuss this with you in more detail when you come to our office for a consultation.
This procedure can be performed on either the upper or lower eyelids, or on both eyelids. You and Dr. Pakeman can discuss what you would like to change about the area surrounding your eyes, and then he will create a treatment plan designed to meet your expectations and desired results.
