Your eyes play a central role in how you are perceived by others. Unfortunately the effects of aging and other factors like sun damage can adversely affect the expression of your eyes, making you look tired, angry or sad. This can give off the wrong impression and lead to false assumptions that you are unapproachable.
But plastic surgery has the incredible ability to turn back the hands of time and help your appearance match how you feel on the inside. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is one of the most popular ways to rejuvenate aging, tired-looking eyes. Thanks to eyelid surgery with Dr. Rudy Coscia, you can recapture the rested, youthful appearance you once enjoyed. Read on to learn more.
What Eyelid Surgery Can Achieve
By removing excess eyelid skin, firming loose skin and stretched-out muscles and removing excess fatty tissue from the upper and lower eyelids, Dr. Coscia can give your eyes a refreshed, youthful expression.
Furthermore, the procedure can combat other telltale signs of aging, such as puffy lower lids, under-eye bags or dark circles and fine lines around the outer corners of the lids.
Eyelid surgery has functional benefits, too. If excess, heavy upper eyelid skin spills over your lashline and obscures your line of sight, eyelid surgery can help. Removing the excess skin along the upper eyelids clears the obstruction for a clearer visual field.
Eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure performed with anesthesia. Surgery can treat the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both at the same time.
The incisions for upper eyelid surgery are made within the natural folds and creases of the upper lids; the incisions for lower eyelid surgery are made below the lower lashline or on the inside of the lids. This ensures that resulting scarring is hardly visible.
The procedure steps vary based on your unique eyelid anatomy and your treatment goals. Normally excess skin and fat are removed and loose or stretched-out muscles are tightened.
Expect to take one to two weeks off from work to recover from surgery. You can enjoy your refreshed appearance and improved confidence for years to come.
