Am I a candidate for Blepharoplasty?
Have you noticed that your eyes look tired all the time, even when you get a good night’s sleep and feel well-rested? The problem isn’t the amount of sleep you’re getting. The main cause of the issue is sagging upper eyelids and puffy undereye bags.
These two issues are quite common and many people encounter them as they get older. However, just hearing this isn’t enough to make a person feel okay about looking worn-out all the time. If you are looking for a way to restore the vibrant and youthful appearance of your eyes, we can provide you with the surgical care you need.
Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, can rejuvenate your tired-looking eyes and restore their vibrant appearance. We offer our Atlanta area patients both lower and upper eyelid surgeries to reduce the appearance of baggy, puffy eyes and correct drooping eyelids. The procedure is safe and effective, and it provides results that are natural-looking and long-lasting.
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
In more severe cases, the upper-eyelid skin may begin to sag to the point where it obscures a portion of the person’s vision, which can be very difficult to deal with. In these instances, upper-eyelid surgery can be performed to restore the person’s normal field of vision.
If there are aesthetic issues with both the upper and lower eyelids, blepharoplasty can be performed on both areas during the same procedure. It may also be recommended that you wait until you have recovered from one procedure before undergoing the other.
Our plastic surgeons will discuss both options with you to help determine which option is best for you. Our goal is to provide you with natural-looking results while simultaneously ensuring that you are safe and healthy.
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.

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.
Blepharoplasty cannot stop the aging process, but it will help you age more gracefully. Your results will change as you age, but your eyelids and eyes will still look younger than they would if you did not have surgery.
