If you’re dissatisfied with the appearance of your eyes, or looking for a refreshed or more youthful overall look, eyelid surgery may be right for you. According to the staff at Pacifica Institute of Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery in Oxnard, surgery performed on both the upper and lower eyelids can make a dramatic difference in a clients appearance.
With upper eyelids, excess skin and fat can create a heavy looking or droopy eyelid, causing an aged appearance and even blocking vision in some cases. Upper eyelid surgery, called upper blepharoplasty, removes excess skin and fat and can improve vision.
Lower blepharoplasty removes excess skin from the lower eyelid and improves the shape of the lower eyelid by reducing wrinkles and removing skin and fat. Adding fat is done to improve a “hollow” appearance.
Although bruising and swelling is common the day after surgery, patients usually recover quickly from eyelid surgery. Good candidates for surgery include those in good health with realistic expectations.
