When you think of plastic surgery in San Antonio, you probably don’t think of the eyelids, however, the eyes are an important feature that can go through unwanted changes with age. A blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can rejuvenate your eyes, and have a huge effect on the overall appearance of your face! Keep reading to find out if you could benefit from blepharoplasty.
Are people always telling you that you look tired? Or do you see an older version of yourself than you’d like when you look in the mirror? The problem could be excess tissue causing drooping eyelids. Like the rest of your body, your eyelids can begin to show the effects of aging and start to sag. When this occurs around the eyes, it can be very noticeable! With a blepharoplasty procedure, a small amount of skin and tissue is removed from the upper and/or lower eyelids. The incision is then closed, tightening its appearance and leaving you looking more awake and rejuvenated. The procedure can also improve undereye puffiness that might be making you look tired or worn out.
For some individuals, hanging eyelid tissue can even obstruct their vision! Can you see better when gently lifting your upper eyelids? If so, you could benefit from a blepharoplasty procedure to remove skin and tissue that is significantly drooping. Because the procedure is improving your vision and not just for cosmetic purposes, your treatment might be covered by insurance.
A blepharoplasty can put the finishing touches on your full-facial rejuvenation. If you’re already opting for a facelift to tighten the midface, or a brow lift, you might choose to have a blepharoplasty procedure at the same time. You can save time and money by choosing to have the procedures together.
