Eyes Don’t Lie: Learn About the Benefits of Blepharoplasty

Improving the appearance of the eyelids can have a powerful anti-aging effect for the entire face . Even though many people know smoothing wrinkles or tightening loose skin will help them appear younger, it’s worth noting that eyelid surgery can also play a crucial role in restoring youth to the face. I perform blepharoplasty at my Pasadena practice to help men and women appear more energized, refreshed, and rejuvenated by lifting and smoothing tissues around the eyes.

In this blog post, I’ll explain why addressing the eyes is an essential aspect of appearing more youthful. I’ll also discuss how a surgical approach goes above and beyond what nonsurgical treatments alone can achieve.

Eyelid Surgery Variations

I perform eyelid surgery on both the upper and lower eyelids to address unique signs of aging in each area.

Ideal Candidates

The ideal blepharoplasty candidate is in good physical health, has realistic expectations for the surgery, and does not have any eye conditions that may impair proper healing. Many eyelid surgery patients may be fairly young, especially those concerned about the appearance of their lower eyelids.

I occasionally recommend combining lower eyelid surgery with a facelift procedure to help blend the lower lids with the triangulated cheek pads below. In younger patients, I can achieve this with an endoscopic facelift that doesn’t require any skin removal. More mature patients, however, are often better served by a full SMAS facelift that addresses deeper tissues.

Benefits of Blepharoplasty

Eyelid surgery can help the right candidates by providing a number of both cosmetic and functional benefits.

Surgery vs. Nonsurgical Treatments

With so many nonsurgical options available, why is eyelid surgery worth the recovery time? While BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers can be helpful in reducing lines and wrinkles around the eyes, they can’t effectively lift drooping eyelids or remove fat bulges from below the eyes. Fillers can replenish lost volume in hollows under the eyes, but the results are temporary and typically last less than a year. Eyelid surgery, on the other hand, provides a long-lasting improvement that most patients say is well worth the minimal downtime.
