Many patients choose blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to address the signs of aging that appear near the eyes such as drooping eyelids, under-eye bags, and a hollowed, tired appearance. Since eyelid surgery restores a more youthful, refreshed look, many assume that this procedure is only requested by patients in their mid-40s to 60s. However, younger patients can choose blepharoplasty if they are concerned with early signs of aging or the appearance of their upper eyelids. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Hunter Moyer further explains the facial procedure and shares his safe, in-office technique.
Blepharoplasty can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelids, depending on the patient’s areas of concern. To rejuvenate the upper eyelids, Dr. Moyer removes excess skin and fat and tightens the lid to open the eyes. Lower eyelid surgery removes excess skin and fat deposits below the eyes that create under-eye bags. Dr. Moyer can also restore volume to the cheek area below the eyes for a more youthful result by repositioning fat and muscle. Incisions for eyelid surgery are hidden in natural creases or within the eyelid.
To save patients time and extra anesthesia and hospital costs, Dr. Moyer performs eyelid surgery in-office in about one hour. Patients can benefit with cosmetic improvements as well as an improved scope of vision. Downtime typically lasts one week, and results are permanent and long-lasting. With many years of experience, Dr. Moyer performs this procedure weekly.
After your surgical procedure, patients can maximize results with a chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing to further reduce scarring and improve skin tone.
