Though many people speak about the sexiness of heavily lidded “bedroom eyes”, there is a big difference between those naturally sultry eyes and eyes that are a bit saggy due to aging. This is why anyone who is struggling with sagging, upper eyelid skin may want to consider an eyelid lift. Also known as a blepharoplasty, it is a common type of plastic surgery done at the Center for Cosmetic Eyelid & Laser Surgery in Sacramento, CA. Of course, not everyone is an ideal candidate for blepharoplasty, so we are going to take a few moments now to help you decide if it is for you.
As your preferred plastic surgeon in Sacramento, we will have to conduct an initial consultation with you to determine if this sort of facial plastic surgery is appropriate for your needs. A candidate for blepharoplasty is not just someone with overhanging or saggy upper eyelid skin. They must also be someone with overall good health and enough of an issue to warrant the treatment.
As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, and a bit of sagging in the brow area can put even further pressure on skin of the upper eyelid. That skin may also be losing its elasticity, and the downward forces can cause the eye to appear droopy. It can also cause issues with vision, and this is something a plastic surgeon can alleviate. Of course, a candidate for blepharoplasty may not be dealing strictly with upper eyelid issues alone. The skin beneath the eye is noted for losing elasticity, and bags beneath the eyes can be addressed by this treatment, too.
The first step to resolving issues with droopy or baggy eyelids is to book a consultation where our doctors can help you determine if you are a strong candidate for blepharoplasty. If it is determined that a different treatment can help with this issue, we are happy to create a customized treatment plan. However, most patients with noticeable skin on the upper eyelids are also a good match to the effectiveness of the blepharoplasty.
