What is an eyelid lift and who is a candidate?

Do you find that you look tired and aged when you look in the mirror? Are you unhappy with how puffy your eyes are, even though you haven’t been crying and have been getting plenty of sleep? Do you feel as though your eyes make you look aged more than you really are? These are common complaints from patients who visit the Center for Classic Beauty and speak to Dr. Anna Petropoulos. There are many changes that can happen to the face that can impact one’s overall appearance, and sagging, drooping, or fatty deposits around the eyes can be improved with the use of a procedure known as blepharoplasty.

What is blepharoplasty?

Dr. Anna Petropoulos describes blepharoplasty as a plastic surgery that is performed on the eyes. Patients who have bags under the eyes, puffy eyelids, or even excess skin will find that this procedure can open up the eyes and turn back time! The blepharoplasty procedure can remove heaviness from the upper eyelid or bags underneath, depending on the needs of the patient. During an initial evaluation, our team of professionals will assess the patient’s needs and provide recommendations regarding the best way to proceed for new and current patients of the practice.

What can be done with the eyelids during this procedure?

Patients who are appropriate candidates for this procedure are healthy adult men and women interested in addressing imperfections of the eyelids and surrounding areas. Below are common reasons why a patient may consider this treatment:

  • Drooping lower eyelids that may show white below the eye’s iris
  • Excess skin that has developed on the upper or lower eyelids with age
  • Sagging skin of the upper eyelid that may impair vision and reduce peripheral vision
  • Excess fatty deposits of the upper or lower eyelids
