Am I a Good Candidate for Blepharoplasty?

Eyelid surgery Heavy eyes, sagging skin around the eyes, and dark circles under your eyes are all signs of loose skin around your eyelids. This is common as you age but can be caused by excessive sun damage and other causes. Sagging skin around your eyelids can be emotionally distressing and can even obstruct your vision in some extreme cases. Thankfully, blepharoplasty can remove loose skin and provide a more youthful appearance around the eyes, but how do you know if it’s right for you? Let’s take a closer look at if you’re a good candidate for eyelid surgery.

Excess Skin on the Upper Eyelids

Having excess skin on the upper eyelid is one of the most common reasons people decide to have eyelid surgery. Excess skin on the upper eyelid can make you look tired, sad, and aged. As mentioned before, more extreme cases of loose skin on the eyelid can even droop and impede your vision. Some patients opt just to have upper eyelid surgery instead of both if they’re experiencing excess upper eyelid skin.

Heavy Eye Bags

Everyone has probably experienced a sleepless night and woken up with heavy eye bags or dark circles. As you age, your skin will lose its elasticity and start to “sink” into the face. This is what causes a sunken eye bag. The skin under your eyes will become depressed into the face and will catch shadows. This causes a tired, aged, and sad appearance. Thankfully, lower eyelid surgery can be used to correct this. Excess skin is removed, and underlying structures are tightened for a youthful appearance.

Crepey Skin

Crepey skin is common to develop as a result of aging. Different things like sun damage, muscle loss, or large weight loss can increase the severity of crepey skin, but everyone is likely to experience it at some point. Crepey skin under the eyes can be especially frustrating. Thankfully, eyelid surgery is designed to not just remove loose skin but tighten the skin. This will stretch and tighten the crepey skin and reduce its appearance.
