Blepharoplasty in Sacramento
What Is Blepharoplasty?
As we age, our eyelids and the skin around them start to stretch, and the muscles in the face begin to weaken. As this happens, excess skin and fat can start to build up above, below and around your eyelids, leading them to look saggy, droopy and tired. In some cases, this sagging skin can also impact your eyesight, particularly your peripheral vision. Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure used to remove this excess skin and restore a youthful, healthy appearance.
How Does Blepharoplasty Work?
During blepharoplasty, your surgeon will make incisions along the fold of your eyelid to remove any excess skin, fat or muscle that needs taken out. This is an outpatient procedure, and we’ll use a numbing agent for your eyelids, so you won’t feel any pain during the surgery.
Look and Feel Younger Again!
In addition to potentially improving your vision, blepharoplasty can help enhance your natural beauty. Not only will you look younger and more alert, but you’ll also feel more refreshed thanks to the rejuvenating enhancement it can bring to your appearance.
Blepharoplasty for Dry Eye Treatment
In some cases, we’re able to alleviate dry eye symptoms through blepharoplasty. This procedure helps tighten the skin and smooth the structure of the eyelid, which can improve healthy tear production and reduce dry eye. Our team will discuss if blepharoplasty is right for your specific situation during a consultation.
