When you think about eye care centers, you think about laser eye surgery, and cataract surgery, and many other vision correction and eye care treatments. But what you may not realize is that some eye care centers (such as our own) offer cosmetic eyelid surgery. The thing is, the surgery has benefits beyond mere aesthetics. The team at our Leesburg eye care center would like to take a little time to go over the basics about eyelid surgery and its benefits right now.
It may be a good idea to first cover the very basics of cosmetic eyelids surgery first. The surgery (also known as blepharoplasty) involves the removal of excess skin and tissue in the upper eyelid. Anesthesia will be given prior to surgery to make sure that the patient is free from undue discomfort. The incisions for the surgery will be hidden in the crease of the eyelid, meaning that the surgical scars will be barely visible. The results of Leesburg eyelid surgery, however, can be dramatic.
One of the major benefits of cosmetic eyelid surgery is that it helps you look much younger and more rejuvenated. That drooping or sagging skin of the upper eyelid can greatly detract from your features, so having it removed can work some wonders.
Another benefit to consider is that it can improve your vision. Say that your upper eyelid sags or droops so much that it blocks out part of your vision. Well, in top of the aesthetic benefits, cosmetic eyelid surgery can help you see much better than you did before surgery.
Right now you may be wondering if the surgery is the right solution for you. If you do have sagging or drooping eyelids, cosmetic eyelid surgery may be the best option. With that said, however, the only way to know for sure is to meet with us for a consultation. During this appointments, we can perform a full evaluation of your needs.
