Sagging, drooping eyelids can make you appear tired and sleepless and obstruct your vision. Along with wrinkles and fine lines, these signs of aging also make you appear older. Baggy eyelids are due to excess fat and skin around the eyes. A loss of elasticity in the skin in that area contributes to tired-looking eyes and vision obstruction. Because there is no such thing as ‘eye exercise’ to tighten the skin or burn fat from around the eyes, blepharoplasty in Baton Rouge may be necessary to correct these problems.
What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure that removes fat and/or skin from around the eyelids. The procedure can be done on the upper or lower eyelids or both, depending on the situation. Dr. J. Anthony Stephens and his team at his office in Baton Rouge will first examine you to determine whether you are a good candidate for a blepharoplasty in Baton Rouge. This surgery is safe and has long-lasting benefits.
Bagginess below the eyelids will disappear with a lower eyelid lift, which removes excess tissue and skin from beneath the eyes. With the bags gone, you will no longer have that fatigued, sleepless appearance.
Folds caused by loose, sagging skin above the eyelids not only interfere with the natural contour of the upper eyelids; they also impair your vision. When blepharoplasty in Baton Rouge is done on the upper eyelids, the excess tissue and skin deposited over the eyes are removed, allowing you to see clearly.
Fewer Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes are tell-tale signs of aging. When the surgery is done on the lower eyelids, it effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, including those pesky lines at the corners of the eyes.
Providing a Fresh, New Look
Achieving naturally younger-looking eyes is an aesthetic benefit of this surgery. The shape of your aging eyes will be enhanced, giving them a fresh, rejuvenated look. A younger, fresher appearance makes you feel even more beautiful and just might boost your self-confidence, too!
