Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, has become quite the common request in our New Jersey office located near Manhattan. Men and women realize that they don’t have to look “tired” or “unfriendly” due to sagging, drooping eyelids, or puffiness or dark circles beneath the eyes, and we are more than happy to help them feel better about their appearance.
If you have been considering eyelid surgery as a part of your facial rejuvenation journey, you may have a lot of questions. These are best answered by an experienced plastic surgeon such as Dr. Richard D’Amico. Here, we will point out a few things that you want to know as you move forward to a younger-looking you.
Heavy, sagging eyelids may not come from age, but from your family.
Ah, we must thank our parents for the good and the bad, right? Sagging eyelid tissue may be one of those things on the not-so-great list. Usually, blepharoplasty is conducted on patients aged 40 and older who have noticed that age has led to undesirable changes. However, genetics may lead to this need in younger patients.
Non-surgical treatment may be recommended for your eyes.
It is common for people to assume that a cosmetic surgeon will always want to operate. This isn’t necessarily true. In some cases, injectable solutions such as BOTOX and/or dermal fillers may be ideal for temporary improvement. This is the big question for patients to answer when considering how they would like to approach the concerns they have about their eyes: is it important to obtain long-term improvement? If so, surgery is the best solution. But there’s more to that . . .
Eyelid surgery may need to be followed by non-surgical treatments.
Blepharoplasty can modify the fat, muscle, and skin to better support a youthful appearance. However, a bit of fine-tuning may also be desired after the effects of eyelid surgery have reached their peak. Injectables are also a fantastic way to manage the results of eyelid surgery for maximum longevity.
Eyelid surgery performed by an experienced cosmetic surgeon can achieve beautiful, natural-looking results that add new life to the face. Learn more about blepharoplasty when you call our Englewood, NJ office at 201-567-9595.
