Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a procedure designed to correct problems around the eyes due to aging or injury. Excess skin that forms bags around the eyes can be removed under anesthesia, eliminating baggind and drooping. If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your eyelids or they are causing functional issues, you may be a good candidate for this procedure. Eyelid surgery can dramatically improve the appearance of skin around the eyes, leading to a healthier, more youthful appearance.
Due to the nature of this procedure, results will take some time to become apparent as you recover. Blepharoplasty surgery addresses bulging fat pads and excess skin but does not change the condition of the skin which remains. Other procedures or treatments to improve collagen formation in the skin may be recommended to obtain an optimal outcome for the appearance of “crepey skin”.
