How can an eyelid surgery change your appearance?

Are you currently unhappy with the appearance of your face? Facial plastic surgery such as a facelift, brow lift or cheek enhancement can alter the way you look in a natural, controlled manner.

An eyelid surgery, known as a blepharoplasty can also dramatically change your face. It can be performed on the lower and upper eyelid. The procedure can treat a range of facial changes caused by aging. These aging effects include:

  • Bags underneath the eyes
  • Drooping lower lids
  • Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness
  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles of lower lid
  • Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs natural contour.

An upper eyelid surgery is usually done to correct droopiness that can cover the eye. Incisions are made within the eye crease and natural contours to minimize visible scarring. As the excess skin and fat are removed, the skin will be tightened and a new shape will be made.

A lower eyelid surgery is done to eliminate puffiness and reduce dark under-eye circles. Incisions can often be made inside the lower eyelid, hiding any scarring or lines from the view of others.

Eyelid surgery can take anywhere between one and three hours depending on the patient, other surgeries performed simultaneously and what the surgery’s main goals are.

Eyelid surgeries are often combined with other facial or medi spa procedures such as a face lift or cheek enhancement.

I went to multiple Plastic Surgeons wanting lower eyelid surgery to get rid of intense under eye wrinkles when I smiled. They all said that I didn’t have enough skin for lower eyelid surgery, and they refused to do it on the grounds they all felt it would permanently pull my lower lid down and not help the wrinkles anyway. And that I had to “live with it.” Prior laser treatments did not diminish the wrinkles either, so I was out of options until I found Dr. Adam Summers. He disagreed with the other Plastic Surgeons, and guaranteed it would not permanently pull my lower lid down. He did the upper lids, lower lids, and an upper cheek lift for a great price and I am thrilled with the results. My eyelid is not pulled down and the wrinkles are gone! Just as importantly, the reason I would also recommend Dr. Summers as unlike Plastic Surgeons I’ve had surgery with in the past, he cared just as much for me and my endless questions or concerns postop as he did before I paid him. He even told me preop that if any wrinkles remained he would stand by his work and get rid of them for free. That is the mark of a truly great Plastic Surgeon. I’d also like to acknowledge Melinda, office manager, the nurses and all the staff for going over and above with great customer service. I’m a fan for life!
