Did you know that blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift, is one of the most common surgeries performed at Abilene Plastic Surgery and Medspa? If you’re considering an eyelid lift, here are a few basics to know before scheduling your consultation with our medical director, board-certified plastic surgeon and blepharoplasty expert, Dr. Kevin Bridge.
Blepharoplasty can help rejuvenate:
•Area surrounding your eyes
•Loose or sagging skin on the upper eyelids
•Puffy eyelids (fatty deposits)
•Under eye bags
•Drooping lower eyelids
•Excess skin and wrinkles of lower lid
Blepharoplasty cannot help:
•Drooping upper lid caused by ptosis, a stretching out of the upper eyelid muscle
•Drooping lids caused by lax forehead or eyebrow skin
Some patients may need a combination of surgeries or a different surgery, such as a brow lift, to achieve their desired goal. Dr. Bridge has years of experience performing these surgeries and will be able to help you determine if an eyelid surgery suits your needs during your personal consultation.
Your blepharoplasty surgeon should be:
•Board certified in plastic surgery
•Experienced at performing blepharoplasty. (Please ask to see our Before & After photos.)
•Conveniently located to you. Recovery from your eyelid surgery should be a relatively smooth and uneventful process, but it does involve follow-up visits with our attentive medical staff. Undergoing surgery locally will ease your recovery process by cutting travel time, lowering stress, and providing invaluable peace of mind.
