Eyelid Surgery

Correct an abnormality or give yourself a refreshing lift with eyelid surgery at the Juventus clinic. The eyes and eyelids are one of the first facial areas to exhibit aging. Bags under your eyes and sagging eyelids can cause negative self esteem, but the good news is that these problems can be repaired.

Eyelid surgery also known as blepharoplasty or cosmetic eyelid surgery is minimally invasive. This procedure significantly improves he look of droopy or tired eye. Surgeons remove both pockets of fat and excess skin from upper and lower eyelids. During eyelid surgery, skin and fat is carefully trimmed away. Incision lines are made in the creases of the eye so all scars are hidden.

Eyelid Surgery Benefits

There are a lot of benefits that can come along with eyelid surgery. First of all, eyelid surgery can help you see better if your current vision is obstructed. This minimally invasive surgery can also improve the overall appearance of the eyes. It can correct lines, wrinkles, excess skin and bags underneath the eyes.

Results

A correctly done eyelid surgery can make your eyes look much younger and much less sleepy. It can improve self-esteem and confidence in clients for years. The general results of an eyelid surgery can last for years, while some results are permanent providing a lifetime of great-looking eyes and eyelids.

Is Eyelid Surgery Right for You?

While eyelid surgery has many benefits and is low risk, it still may not be right for everyone. For example, the right candidate for surgery should understand that it is done only to remove bags under the eyes and reduce puffy upper eyelids. In addition, eyelid surgery could restore vision if you are experiencing obscured vision due to excess skin or fat. Ideal surgery candidates are those that:

  • Have puffy upper eyelids.
  • Consistently tired looking eyes.
  • Excess upper eyelid skin.
  • Are at least 18 years of age.
  • In good physical and mental health.
  • Take the risks of surgery into consideration before commitment.
  • Have realistic expectations of procedure results.

It is also important to note that some medical conditions or certain ophthalmic problems could exclude a potential candidate. For example, dry eyes or glaucoma can be enhanced due to eyelid surgery. Additional medical condition that may exclude you from surgery include:

  • Graves’ disease.
  • Cardiovascular disease.
  • Diabetes.
  • High blood pressure.
  • Lack of proper orbital anatomy.
