Blepharoplasty Kalamazoo

Are your eyes looking puffy and tired? If so, you can rejuvenate your appearance with eyelid surgery, which can ensure you look alert and younger. 

As we get older, the skin around our eyes can start to stretch and turn saggy, which can cause that dreaded droopy appearance. This can be virtually impossible to reverse naturally, yet there is another solution, and this is to have blepharoplasty, which is eyelid surgery.

What is a Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is eyelid lift surgery, which is a type of procedure that will correct any signs of aging around your eyes. This treatment can involve surgery on either the lower or the upper eyelids. In some cases, it can involve both. Excess fat and skin around this area are removed to ensure your appearance looks fresh and alert, rather than being tired.

Types of Blepharoplasty

There are two main types of blepharoplasty, which are as follows:

Upper Eyelid Lift

Firstly, we have upper eyelid lift surgery, which is beneficial for those who have puffiness, excess fat, or sagging skin on the upper lids. 

Lower Eyelid Lift

If you have “bags” under your eyes or excess skin under your eyes, a lower eyelid lift will be suitable. 

It is worth pointing out that you can have both types of eyelid lift surgery carried out, which is known as double eyelid surgery. A lot of people opt for this type of surgery so that they can look younger and experience the best possible results.

  • Improvement in lower eyelid hollowing
  • Removal of dark circles underneath the eyes
  • Lower skin irritation that is caused by the excess folds of skin rubbing together 
  • Enhance your eye shape for a refreshed appearance
  • Knock years off your appearance by reducing aging skin around the eyes
  • Expand your line of sight, enabling you to enjoy improved vision
  • Reduce bags underneath your eyes

As you can see, there are a number of different benefits that are associated with blepharoplasty. All of these advantages come together to increase confidence within the patient. A lot of our patients have a new lease of life after having this treatment, making low self-esteem a thing of the past.

Am I a Candidate for a Blepharoplasty?

One thing you will want to know is whether or not you are a good candidate for blepharoplasty. A good candidate for this treatment is someone who has droopy eyelids that are either impacting their field of vision or lowering their self-confidence, or both. It is important that you are in good general health and that you have realistic expectations. Of course, this is something that Dr. Holley will discuss with you during your consultation.
