Am I a candidate for Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) can rejuvenate your tired looking eyes. We offer our Atlanta area patients both lower and upper eyelid surgeries to reduce the appearance of baggy, puffy eyes and correct drooping eyelids.
Symptoms of Aging That Blepharoplasty Can Treat
Blepharoplasty may be an ideal procedure for you if you suffer with any of the following signs of aging:
- Excess skin that hangs from your upper eyelid
- Fat deposits in the lower eyelid that cause puffing or bags under your eyes
- Hollow areas under your eyes that contribute to dark-looking bags
The best way to determine your blepharoplasty candidacy is to consult one of our experienced Atlanta plastic surgeons. We can also recommend a combination of facial plastic surgery procedures to give your entire look a more youthful appearance. Call 770-425-0118 for our Marietta office or 678-494-2380 for our Woodstock location today.
Good General Health
In order to undergo blepharoplasty, you should be in good overall health. You should not be suffering from any major medical conditions, and you should not be a smoker or you should seriously consider giving up smoking. Smoking will slow your recovery and increase your chances for complications during and after surgery.
If you lead a generally healthy lifestyle, get regular exercise, and are close to your ideal weight, then you are likely a good candidate for blepharoplasty. When you meet with one of our plastic surgeons, you will need to discuss your medical history and any medications or supplements you are currently taking.
One of the keys to successful plastic surgery is having realistic expectations about the outcome of your procedure. During your plastic surgery consultation, we will help you define your expectations and understand exactly what blepharoplasty can do to rejuvenate your facial appearance. Blepharoplasty is not a cure-all for aging, but it can boost your self-confidence and allow your eyes to look as young as you feel.
