Eyelid Surgery Isn’t as Scary as it Sounds

Thanks to procedures like LASIK eye surgery, injectables like Juvéderm, and applications like Latisse, this area of the face is becoming more acceptable as a treatment site.

Still, we agree that blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, doesn’t sound pleasant. Well, by that train of thought, no procedure that involves the word “surgery” is really thought of as pleasant, but we’d like you to hear us out on this wonderful, reversing-the-clock procedure.

Blepharoplasty simply involves a qualified plastic surgeon like Dr. Tenley Lawton removing excess fat, skin, or muscle from the eye region. These items can cause eyelids to look droopy, creating a tired appearance even if we feel refreshed. Eyelid surgery can take these extra substances away, creating a polished, bright-eyed, and awake look that can instantly wipe years off your appearance.

Eyelid surgery can be performed alone, or in conjunction with a brow, forehead or facelift. Some women also opt for a Botox touch-up at this time. A blepharoplasty procedure typically takes about an hour to perform in an outpatient setting. The risk of scars is also minimal, as any incision lines are generally covered by the natural eyelid creases.

See? That wasn’t as scary as it sounds, right? Call our office today to find out even more about this revolutionary procedure!
