How Blepharoplasty Can Revitalize Your Look

Do you like what you see in the mirror? Our eyes say a lot about us. They can convey happiness, sadness, excitement or especially surprise. When your eyes say, “I’m tired,” (even when you’re not), or “I didn’t get enough sleep last night,” (even when you did), maybe it’s time to investigate blepharoplasty eyelid surgery.

Sagging droopy eyelids can happen to both men and women and you don’t necessarily need to be “old.” Puffy under eyes and cloaked lids make you look older than you are, less rested, and portray a less energetic person to the outside world.

If this is you, keep reading because you can do something about it.

Why Blepharoplasty?

As we age our eyelids stretch and our skin becomes more elastic. When this occurs the excess skin and fat in our lids can tend to make us look older. Blepharoplasty eyelid surgery is sometimes known as a brow lift. It can be performed on both the upper and lower lid.

Blepharoplasty eye surgery can correct:

  • Drooping eyelid skin
  • Puffiness and fat in the upper lids
  • “Bags” under the eyes
  • Drooping lower lids that eventually show the white part of the eye below the iris
  • Loose skin that creates folds in the upper lid
  • Excess skin and wrinkles in lower lids

Blepharoplasty Can Aid In Vision

Not only will blepharoplasty eyelid surgery make you appear more alert, refreshed and youthful, but it can also improve your vision. Many times excess skin in the upper lid will droop down over your peripheral vision or vision in general giving you that hooded look. When this occurs, it can make it hard to read, drive or perform certain activities.

A test will be taken to determine if this is the case. If your vision is being compromised, insurance may pay for all or part of your surgery. We can help you find out.

In addition financing is available.

Revitalize And Rejuvenate Your Look

Blepharoplasty eyelid surgery is becoming one of the most common cosmetic procedures. Thousands of patients are regaining a youthful vibrant appearance in a short 1.5 hour procedure.

Sometimes genetics can cause these symptoms to appear when you are only in your 30s or 40s. You don’t have to let your eyes say the wrong thing about you. Maybe you are searching for a new job and want to look your best as you attend interviews. Maybe you look in the mirror and you don’t recognize that person any more, or maybe you just want to look as young as you feel.

Whether you are considering blepharoplasty for cosmetic reasons or functional issues, contact the eye doctors at South Texas Eye Institute in San Antonio to discover what blepharoplasty surgery can do for you.
