There are plenty of options available to people who would like to reduce any signs of aging and look younger and more vibrant. A facelift, for example, can reduce the sagging, drooping, and wrinkling of the middle portion of the face quite effectively. The brow lift can make the furrows on the forehead disappear. For the jowls, there is a lower facelift that will make that sagging a thing of the past, and for the neckline, a necklift will remove that excess skin that can form over time.
Eyes on the Eyes
In addition to all of these, there is also surgery that addressed the eye area. Eyelids that are saggy or wrinkled can affect your appearance as well as your vision. And since the eyes communicate so much about who we are and our intentions, it’s no wonder that this surgery is so popular. It’s referred to by different names which you may have already heard of: blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery, eyelift, etc. Whatever you wish to call it, this cosmetic eyelid surgery can be of great benefit to you.
When you come to the Bay Area and Sacramento area plastic surgery practice of Dr. Kimberly Henry, she will use her skills and knowledge as a surgeon to determine the best possible treatment plan that will meet your needs. In some cases, this may mean a facial plastic surgery procedure or combination of procedures to achieve these aesthetic goals. Dr. Henry will also recommend non-surgical treatments that you may wish to consider as alternatives to surgery if you wish.
About Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
We’d like to take a brief moment right now to go over the basics of Sacramento eyelid surgery and to let you know who the best candidates for surgery are. Now, we cannot go into full detail here or answer all of your questions, but this should give you a general idea of what the surgery entails and how it can be effective for you.
The cosmetic eyelid surgery procedure will vary depending on the issue that needs to be addressed. For sagging upper eyelids, the surgery will involve the removal of tissue and the use of incisions hidden in the natural fold of the upper eyelid. Lower eyelid surgery involving bags under the eyes or a drooping lower eyelid will also involve hidden incisions; for the bags under the eyes, safely performed facial liposuction may be used.
Good Canddiates for Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
The best candidate for cosmetic eyelid surgery are people who are in generally good health and have a positive attitude about surgery and what it can realistically accomplish. Patients should not have any eye infections, vision conditions, or general health problems that would prevent them from undergoing surgery. Many patients who have drooping eyelids would be best served by this surgery. This is especially true in cases of severe drooping in which the upper eyelid obscures part of a patient’s vision. Cosmetic eyelid surgery is also a good option for people who have very narrow eyes. The creation of a fold in the upper eyelid can address this matter simply and discreetly.
