Say Goodbye to Your Droopy Eyelids Once and for All With a Blepharoplasty

It’s said that the eyes are a window to the soul. If that window is blocked, however, it can be hard to reveal your true self and look as fresh and youthful as you feel. You may appear unusually tired, angry, or aged. Sagging lids can also impair your vision, so you don’t see as clearly as you should.

Rejuvenate your look and improve your vision with eyelid surgery, or a blepharoplasty, offered by expert cosmetic surgeon Yaqub Baraki, MD of Lansdowne Aesthetic Surgery. This simple, outpatient surgical procedure gives you a refreshed, more open look by repairing droopy eyelids and removing excess skin, fat, or muscle, contributing to puffiness, bags, and hooding.

Take a minute to learn how blepharoplasty can help you look more youthful and bright.

Blepharoplasty restores your look

Aging often starts to show up early around your eyes because the skin there is thin and delicate. Excessive skin drooping and sagging that can be part of aging disturb your eyes’ natural contours and can interfere with expression. You may look sad, angry, and tired, even if you feel just fine.

A blepharoplasty lifts up heavy lids and removes extra fat creating bags and hoods. The surgery revises your look and your eyes’ function. Dr. Baraki can perform blepharoplasty on your upper or lower lids.

You may be a candidate

If you have baggy or droopy eyelids, a blepharoplasty may be for you. Other reasons you may consider the surgery include:

Dr. Baraki evaluates your eyes and the rest of your face to ensure that eyelid surgery is the best way for you to say goodbye to drooping lids. The procedure may give you the most comprehensive and optimal results when combined with a brow lift or face-lift. A brow lift is done to reduce the amount of lax skin and deep furrows above your eyes, and a face-lift helps with wrinkling and sagging skin on the cheeks and neck.

The doctor also looks at your health history to make sure you’re in good enough condition to withstand surgery and heal properly.

Blepharoplasty may encompass several procedures

You may benefit from blepharoplasty for just the upper, just the lower, or both eyelids. For the upper lids, the surgery involves removing excess skin and restoring your eyelids’ naturally youthful shape, so you look more open and refreshed. Dr. Baraki typically makes an incision in the natural crease just above the eye. Through this incision, he removes excess skin and fat and adjusts any surrounding muscles, as needed.

Surgery for the lower lids can resolve puffy, sagging bags caused by herniated fat in the undereye area. To correct bags, Dr. Baraki makes an incision on the outer edge of the lower eyelid or inside the eyelid and adjusts the fat in the area to create a smoother undereye area. Excess fat and skin may be removed and the lower eyelid muscle tightened to provide the most natural-looking results.

At Lansdowne Aesthetic Center, men and women in Leesburg and Ashton, Virginia can get the procedures they need done to look their best. If you’re interested in eyelid surgery, other facial procedures, or body improvements, call today, or book a consultation online.
