What is Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)?
- Posted on: May 31 2017
Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery or eyelid lift, is a surgical procedure performed by Dr. Roberto Garcia, founder of the Contoura Procedure and Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL to improve the appearance of the eyelids.
Eyelid Surgery or Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids. The procedure can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids, or both. If a patient is concerned with drooping or puffy eyelids, eyelid surgery might be the answer. Cosmetic surgery of the eyes can correct these changes and restore youthful, beautiful eyes.
As the face ages, the skin on the eyelids and the surrounding areas loses elasticity. In addition, the action of gravity pulls on the tissues as well. The effects include sagging skin and the formation of the puffy bags on the lower eyelids.
Dr. Roberto Garcia can help patients address these issues in a very effective and natural manner. If the upper eyelids are a concern, any excess skin or fatty tissue can be removed through a small incision that’s hidden within the natural fold of the eyelid. During lower eyelid surgery, excess skin, muscle and fat are removed to reveal an improved lower eyelid area. Many times, fatty tissue may need to be repositioned in that area to address any hollowing.
If you are concerned with some of these conditions or have questions about any of this information, you are encouraged to speak to Dr. Roberto Garcia personally. Please call (904) 686-8020 for your complimentary consultation.
