Blepharoplasty: A Cure For Tired Eyes

Fullness of the eyelids is one of the first signs of aging, and many people often complain of looking “tired” even when they feel energetic on the inside. Though this condition is most common in patients who are in their 50s or 60s, it can be seen in patients as young as their late 30s and early 40s. Changes to the eyelids typically include extra skin in the upper lid and bulging of fat in the lower lid.

How can these changes affect one’s appearance? Women will often notice that after putting on their eye shadow, their upper eyelid skin will fold over and cover the makeup that they just applied. Both men and women may also notice that the upper eyelid skin will actually touch the eyelid lashes and create a tired look. In the lower lids, fat can accumulate and create dark shadows, also giving the illusion of being tired. These types of eyelid manifestations are classic findings in patients who may be good candidates for upper and/or lower eyelid surgery.

Blepharoplasty (also called eyelid surgery) can directly address these signs of aging by removing excess skin and fat while revitalizing the area around the eyes. The procedure can be customized to address the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both, depending on the individual needs of the patient. In addition, our patients often report a boost in self-confidence from their rejuvenated appearance.
