Why Blepharoplasty is the Treatment of Choice for Sagging Eyelids

DermSurgery Associates

Say goodbye to sagging eyelids with this highly effective treatment!

They say the eyes are the “windows to the soul.” Often as we age, those eyes don’t make for a very becoming portal into the nether regions of our “true selves.” If you want to brighten up and enliven those two windows on the front of your face, you should look into blepharoplasty, a treatment engineered to fix sagging eyelids and more.

It’s amazing how much our eyelids affect our appearance. Most of us occasionally have “tired eyes” from lack of sleep or spending long periods of time reading – especially at a computer. But part of the natural aging process for some people includes tired eyes that are with them all the time. At least until they learn about blepharoplasty.

Essentially blepharoplasty is an eyelid lift therapy that works to restore the original appearance of a person’s eyes by removing wrinkles, bulging fat and excess skin. The procedure is performed by a dermatologic surgeon and is safe and proven highly effective.

A wide variety of disfigurations, deformities and defects of the eyelids can be altered with this procedure, which is indicated in cases where one simply wants to improve the cosmetic attractiveness of the eyes and also in cases where there is malformation due to injury or genetics. The dermatologists at DermSurgery Associates of Houston are specifically trained to bring amazing restoration to sagging eyelids, regardless of why they’ve shown up.

Specifically, people choose to have an eyelid lift to treat:

  • loss or diminishing of peripheral vision due to the skin of the upper eyelid draping over the lashes
  • upper eyelids that have begun showing fine wrinkles and that contain excess skin
  • sagging eyelids that present with puffiness due to excess fatty deposits beneath the skin
  • a common problem often referred to as “bags under the eyes”
  • lower eyelids that sag to such an extent that the white area below the iris is exposed

When used to fix sagging eyelids, blepharoplasty is an outstanding solution. It is also used for other conditions related to the skin above and below the eyes. Regardless of why a person requests this treatment, the goal is always to restore the original and natural beauty of the eyes. We believe everybody has a right to look her best, and our entire team is committed to getting you to this outcome in ways that are safe, as non-invasive as possible and very effective.

The name “blepharoplasty” derives from the Greek “blepharon,” which means “eyelid,” and “plassein,” which means “to form.” It is a surgical procedure that typically takes about an hour and requires only a local anesthetic. Blepharoplasty is a specialty treatment at DermSurgery Associates of Houston, where we use state-of-the-art equipment and a proven process to create the exact look our patients want.

Are you ready to wake your eyes up?  Do you want to take years off your appearance? Is it time to give those “windows to your soul” a little sprucing up? You can solve the problem of sagging eyelids now, in time to unveil a new you in upcoming spring and summer.
