An Eyelid Lift for Facial Rejuvenation

The following is general information on eyelid surgery / blepharoplasty.
It is not medical advice nor is it authored by a medical professional.

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is performed to correct drooping upper eyelids and puffy bags under the eyes.
The plastic surgeon achieves this by removing excess fat, skin, and muscle.
When successfully done, eyelid surgery can give a look of rejuvenation and alertness to a previously tired-looking face.

Sometimes upper eyelid surgery - blepharoplasty may be covered by health insurance if it is performed to correct vision problems or defects caused by the eyelids. Drooping eyelids which impair vision can be treated successfully with an eyelid lift. This type of plastic surgery may be covered by health insurance as it improves vision.

Many people have bags under their eyes. Blepharoplasty can improve this condition.

You may be a good candidate for blepharoplasty if you:
- do not smoke
- are in general good health
- have realistic expectations regarding the outcome of this cosmetic surgery
- have otherwise healthy eyes

As for all other surgery, you should go for a pre-surgical physical and evaluation. Be honest with your physician and tell him/her about any eye diseases you have / had or any other medical conditions of which you aer aware.

Like all surgery, eyelid surgery carries certain risks, and you should speak to a competent surgeon about whether you are a good candidate for blepharoplasty and other cosmetic/aesthetic or reconstructive plastic surgery procedures.

Most board certified plastic surgeons who perform cosmetic surgery are experienced in blepharoplasty.
