How Does Blepharoplasty Work?
Upper blepharoplasty uses an incision in the crease of the eyelid through which fatty tissues and excess skin are removed for patients who feel their eyes look tired or droopy even when they’re rested. Underlying tissues can shift downward with age, putting pressure on delicate skin and causing it to sag. In severe cases, excess skin can even impede vision. Blepharoplasty lifts and tightens tissues around the eye for a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
How Does a Brow Lift Work?
Gravity also impacts the forehead, causing eyelid puffiness, sagging brows, and wrinkles. A forehead lift aims at lifting and tightening tissues to raise the brows, thereby smoothing the skin around the eyes, reducing broody brows, and minimizing wrinkles. Your LPS surgeon repositions muscles and fatty tissue around the brow through incisions made in the hairline or over the eyebrow to lift the brow structure. Excess skin is removed, relieving weight bearing down on the eyes.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Candidates for both procedures are healthy men and women who are unhappy with the puffiness around their eyes, skin laxity, and wrinkles in the treatment area. While these procedures can improve the appearance, they will not change the shape of the eyes. Some patients who have thyroid hormone imbalances, Grave’s disease, circulation concerns, tear duct disorders, and cardiovascular issues may not be candidates for blepharoplasty. Please check with your primary doctor if you suffer from these.
