Your eyes are one of the first things people notice about you. In fact, it’s often said that the eyes are the “windows to the soul.” Because the eyes are such a captivating feature of Corpus Christi residents’ faces, it can be especially frustrating if you have droopy upper eyelids, sagging lower eyelids or dark under eye circles that make you look older than you really are. Luckily for Corpus Christi residents suffering from these conditions, Dr. Rose of Rose Cosmetic Surgery Center performs blepharoplasty – and upper and lower eyelid surgery that can help restore your youthful appearance.
What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is one big word for a surgical procedure that can make your eyes look younger and more alert. Performed on either your upper or lower eyelids – or both – blepharoplasty can be used to treat a number of cosmetic eye conditions including:
- Deep lines or wrinkles caused by sun exposure or aging;
- Puffy or heavy eyelids;
- Excessive skin or Hooding of the eyes;
- Dark circles underneath the eyes; and
- Drooping lower eyelids that show the white of the eyes.
Choosing Blepharoplasty to Reduce Under-Eye Bags
As Corpus Christi residents age, their upper and lower eyelids begin to droop. Genetics, as well as age, can cause a person to have droopy, baggy eyes making them appear much older than they actually are. This affects one’s self-esteem as well as their “business” appearance where they appear tired and uninterested during meetings or conversations.
Blepharoplasty, when performed on your lower eyelids, can be used to reduce under-eye bags and dark circles under your eyes. To do so, Dr. Rose makes an incision inside the lower eyelids or underneath your eyelash lines. He then removes extra skin and fatty tissue that has accumulated below your eyes. If your under eyes are also loose, he may tighten up your skin to remove that sagging look.
Getting a Blepharoplasty to Fix Drooping Upper Eyelids
Sometimes, eyelids can droop so much that they make you look “sleepy” or tired. This condition can make you look older than you are. By conducting a blepharoplasty, though, Dr. Rose can remove the excess skin from your upper eyelids with a small strip of muscle. This “opens” the eye and gives it a more youthful appearance. The results are immediate. This is a very popular procedure for women and businessmen who are looking for every advantage in a competitive marketplace.
Having Blepharoplasty to Fix Sagging or Puffy Lower Eyelids
Blepharoplasty isn’t just for your Upper eyelids. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty can help remove the tired look often associated with puffy or sagging lower eyelids. This is done by removing the excess fat in the lower eyelid fat pads and tightening the lower eyelid skin. The results are a more refreshed, more rejuvenated version of yourself. And the best part is – you won’t look like you’ve had work done. Instead, you’ll look more energized and rested, and look like the best possible version of yourself.
Am I A Good Candidate for Blepharoplasty?
Even though Blepharoplasty is a great cosmetic surgery procedure for helping you appear your actual age, it is not right for everybody. For Dr. Rose to perform blepharoplasty on you, you must:
- Be in general good health, and have no medical conditions that would impair healing;
- Be a non-smoker, or promise to quit smoking for 4 weeks before to 4 weeks after your procedure, as smoking can interfere with the surgery and recovery process;
- Not have any serious eye conditions;
- Have realistic expectations for your procedure;
