Reasons to Choose Blepharoplasty with Dr. Angelchik
Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery or eyelid lift, is a popular facial procedure that Dr. Angelchik offers. This procedure is commonly performed for a wide range of patients. Blepharoplasty results in subtle changes to the face which create a rejuvenated, fresh, and younger appearance. Here are the three main reasons why Dr. Angelchik’s patients choose blepharoplasty.
Typically due to aging, the upper and lower eyelids may start to droop or sag with excess or loose skin. This can make you look tired and older than your years. In addition to cosmetic effects, drooping and sagging upper eyelids can even cause vision problems in more extreme cases. Some patients experience lost or impeded vision by excess skin around the eyes which may fold over their field of vision. A blepharoplasty can give you a younger appearance and restore your field of vision.
It’s not uncommon to have the appearance of puffy eyes due to fat pads around the eye area. The eyeballs are surrounded by a cone of fat. This fat acts as a shock absorber for the eyes. The fat is held in place by connective tissue sheets. As we age, these sheets may start to stretch and loosen. This results in the fat pads pushing forward and appearing as bags or bumps, particularly in the lower eyelid. They are also present in the upper eyelid as well. Blepharoplasty can relieve this by removing or repositioning excess fat around the eyelids. Bulging fat pads can give the appearance that you are tired or upset. Blepharoplasty can help make you look more like the way you actually feel by removing this puffiness.
Rather than reversing signs of aging, some patients choose to have a blepharoplasty to change the shape of the eyelids that they were born with. A blepharoplasty can be chosen to create a fold in the upper eyelid, which can make the eyes look larger or more open. This is typically done for Asian patients. Blepharoplasty can be performed to create a more noticeable crease in the eyelid regardless of whether you have no existing fold (also known as “single” or “mono lids”) or you wish to enhance the shape of your eyelid fold.
If you’re interested in Blepharoplasty for yourself, you can review before-and-after pictures of Dr. Angelchik’s previous patients and schedule a consultation to see if the procedure is right for you.
