Blepharoplasty: Benefits and Options
Posted on April 1, 2020 by Dr. Carlos Chacon - Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty, or eye lift, is an effective way to reduce bagginess from lower eyelids, while removing drooping skin from upper eyelids. It tightens the skin surrounding the eyes and eliminates excess fat, changing a once-tired expression into a supple, youthful look.
Experienced San Diego-area plastic surgeon Dr. Carlos Chacon of Divino Plastic Surgery often recommends that patients consider blepharoplasty, as well as other proven options that can reverse or reduce the signs of aging near the eyes.
Restoring the Sparkle
A key benefit of blepharoplasty is that it is a long-lasting solution for weary eyes and worn-out expressions. Once fat is removed during blepharoplasty, it will never come back. The procedure does not freeze time, however; you will experience a normal loosening of skin over the next 10 or 20 years. Eye lift resets the clock, so your natural aging process begins again with much younger-looking skin.
Because blepharoplasty is meant to last years, it is important that a surgeon refrain from removing too much skin. Dr. Chacon favors a conservative approach, removing an amount that is sufficient to give you a relaxed, optimistic look. When too much skin is removed, the resulting side effects may include dry eyes and difficulty completely closing the eyelids.
