Tired of waking up to baggy or weary-looking eyes? A blepharoplasty, or cosmetic eyelid surgery, could give your eyes the lift they need.
“Baggy skin that creates folds or disturbs the contour of the upper or lower eyelids – sometimes impairing vision – can be treated with this surgery, “ say Kim Maale, M.D., a board-certified ophthalmologist specializing in occuloplastics on the medical staff. “The surgery can improve vision while giving the eye area a rejuvenated appearance, making you look more rested and alert.”
Consult your physician and discuss any current medical conditions you have – such as glaucoma, dry eye, detached retina, high blood pressure or diabetes – to determine if you might be a candidate for this procedure.
