A blepharoplasty procedure in Sacramento can be a great way to decrease signs of aging in your face, open up your eyes and help your face appear more awake than it has in years. Blepharoplasty is the technical term for eyelid surgery, which can be performed on the upper and/or lower lids.
If you have noticed that your topical eye treatments are no longer providing the results that they once did, blepharoplasty may be the right option for you. Eyelid surgery can be a more permanent option that gives you decades of relief from excessive eyelid tissues. The best candidates are those who are generally healthy, who understand what eyelid surgery can treat, who are aware of what the recovery will be like and are prepared to follow the doctor’s orders and who do not have medical concerns with their eyes. Of course, a thorough consultation with our surgeon in Sacramento will help you know for sure whether a blepharoplasty procedure is right for you.
Blepharoplasty is primarily done to decrease sagging skin and puffy tissues around the eyes. Both the upper eyelids and lower eyelids can be treated. It can treat deep folds in the tissues surrounding the eyes that are due to excess skin. However, while you may notice a slight decrease in lines and wrinkles around the eyes, it is not performed to treat crow’s feet. It can also remove fatty deposits beneath the eyes that produce a puffy look or that show up as bags. Additionally, if your lower eyelids droop to the point that they show too much of the white of your eye, blepharoplasty can treat this as well.
While blepharoplasty can be used to improve peripheral vision by repairing drooping eyelids, it is most often used in Sacramento as a cosmetic procedure. Our practice provides the most cutting-edge techniques to let your face appear young yet natural.
