Do you have puffy, sagging or wrinkled eyelids? Wondering if eyelid surgery (otherwise known as blepharoplasty) is worth going through with the procedure and expense? At Pacifico Plastic Surgery, we’re here to answer all of your questions about eyelid surgery and help you make the best decision for your goals and lifestyle.
Led by Dr. Biagio Pacifico, a Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, we offer eyelid surgery for people in Brooklyn and Staten Island, NY, as well as the rest of New York and New Jersey, who feel that they can benefit from the procedure. Here are some of the primary reasons why people choose to go through with eyelid surgery:
- They have sagging or loose skin that creates folds or disturbs the contour of the eyelid, which can sometimes impair their vision.
- They regularly have bags under their eyes.
- They have fatty deposits that may appear as puffiness in their eyelids.
- They have drooping lower eyelids that often reveal white below the iris.
- They have excess skin or fine wrinkles on their lower or upper eyelids.
These eyelid issues can not only be unsightly for people, but they also can cause functional problems and make it more difficult for them to see.
What is eyelid surgery?
It’s understandable to want to know what eyelid surgery is and what the surgery entails before you decide to go through with the treatment. Eyelid surgery improves the appearance of a person’s eyelids, and can be performed on the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids or both, depending on what you need. If you’d like to improve your appearance, or if you’re experiencing any functional problems with your eyelids, blepharoplasty can help rejuvenate the area around your eyes.
What makes someone a good candidate for this procedure?
At Pacifico Plastic Surgery, we believe the best candidates for blepharoplasty are patients who are in good health and have realistic expectations. The surgery can enhance your appearance and also help boost your confidence. Before you have the surgery, we’ll provide you with a consultation so that you can discuss your goals with us, so we can help you have the best outcome.
Is this type of surgery permanent?
While lower eyelid surgery rarely needs to be repeated, the results of upper eyelid surgery usually last ten to twenty years.
What are the benefits of this procedure?
If you’re experiencing any of the issues we mentioned above, then you may be able to benefit from eyelid surgery. The potential benefits include fewer bags or a reduced appearance of bags, fewer fine lines, improved vision and a refreshed appearance. In fact, this procedure is one of the best ways to give not only your eyes, but also your entire face, a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
