The area around your eyes is one of the very first areas to show signs of aging. Sagging upper eyelids and under-eye bags that accompany aging can be fixed through blepharoplasty, known simply as cosmetic eyelid surgery. This fairly minor cosmetic procedure can revitalize the look of your face and leave you looking much, much younger. To know more about having a blepharoplasty procedure in Baton Rouge, schedule a consultation with us.
What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty, also called cosmetic eyelid surgery, noticeably improves the look of droopy, tired eyes. This is achieved by getting rid of excess skin and fat pockets from the lower and upper eyelids. Many patients combine this procedure with alternative procedures like brow lift to do away with drooping eyebrows, and a variety of aesthetic dermal fillers to resolve crow’s feet.
Who are Perfect Candidates for Blepharoplasty?
Perfect candidates for blepharoplasty include:
• Individuals with aging eyes
• Healthy with individuals without medical conditions that can deter healing
• Individuals with realistic goals and a positive outlook
Remember that eyelids are part of your face. A drooping upper eyelid may also occur when your eyebrow and forehead skin relax. Sometimes stretching out your upper eyelid muscle can lead to a drooping eyelid, which requires a different cosmetic surgery procedure. Our plastic surgeon in Baton Rouge will assess the anatomy of your face thoroughly and discuss what cosmetic treatments might best resolve your concerns.
Our plastic surgeon can customize your surgery to your own specific goals. However, personalized care begins with a conversation. Please make sure to talk to our plastic surgeon about your expectations so he understands what you want. This also helps our surgeon to steer you towards achieving realistic goals.
Before your consultation with us, prepare a list of questions to share with our surgeon. You also may want to write down your goals for blepharoplasty. Doing so will help you recall every question you have for the surgeon and to communicate well with the surgeon.
Our surgeon will examine your face and eyes, take measurements and pictures and suggest a treatment plan. Ask our doctor why blepharoplasty in Baton Rouge may be the right option for you.
