The appearance of your eyelids can have a profound impact on your entire face. The elasticity and contour of your eyelids can affect whether you look youthful or older, approachable or grumpy, alert or tired. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can be used to remove saggy skin and fatty deposits in the upper and lower brows and refresh your appearance.
If you live in Central Vancouver Island and would like to learn more about how we can help restore your youthful appearance, please call our office in Nanaimo at 250-591-1566 to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Philip Barnsley.
What Is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is a facial surgery procedure designed to improve the appearance of the eyelids and in turn, provide the entire face a more youthful look. During the procedure, the upper eyelids typically require the removal of skin. Lower eyelids can be more complex, and often need a combination of techniques to improve their appearance.
With eyelid surgery, Dr. Barnsley can address the following issues:
- Bags and puffiness beneath your lower eyelids
- Excess hanging upper eyelid skin
- Puffy, budging eyelid skin
- Obstructed vision caused by bulging or sagging upper eyelids
- Aged, tired appearance caused by the condition of your eyelids
Combing Your Cosmetic Eye Surgery with Other Procedures
Eyelift surgery is tailored to the unique needs of each individual. Your procedure may involve removing fat, removing skin, tightening deep tissue layers or a combination of these techniques. Achieving comprehensively youthful appearance may require addressing other areas of aging on the face and neck.
Depending on your specific needs and goals, Dr. Barnsley may recommend performing your eye lift surgery in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures or treatments, such as:
