Look Refreshed With Blepharoplasty

Eyes can reveal a lot about a person – from their mood to their age to how much they’ve slept.  In fact, it’s hard to look at yourself in the mirror without noticing your eyes first. Since eyes play such an important role in your overall aesthetic, CAPS is proud to offer a cosmetic procedure that reveals the true beauty of your eyes. 

What Is Blepharoplasty And What Does It Treat?

Eyelid surgery, also known as Blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that can improve the appearance of your upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, and can rejuvenate the appearance of the area around your eyes. Blepharoplasty can be tailored to your unique aesthetic goals. Other common issues that can be fixed with eyelid surgery include:

  • Loose or sagging skin that disrupts the natural contour of your eyes

  • Excess fat that gives a puffy appearance 

  • Bags under the eyes

  • Droopiness of the lower eyelids

  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles on the lower eyelid

Blepharoplasty offers many cosmetic benefits which is why the procedure is in such high demand. The best candidates for Blepharoplasty are individuals who are in good health and have sagging, puffy or drooping eyelids. Most Blepharoplasty patients are 40 years or older, but those who have naturally hooded eyelids or baggy skin running in the family, may choose to have the surgery earlier. Most patients choose to undergo the procedure for the following reasons

  • To look more youthful: As we age, our eyelid skin is typically the first place where we notice signs of aging. As elasticity and collagen is lost overtime, excess skin builds up and leaves us looking older than we feel. Eyelid surgery is a highly effective way to treat the problem and create a younger fresher look. 

  • Appear less tired: Heavy eyelids and excess skin can weigh down our eyes and give them a sleepy appearance. Under eye bags often leave our eyes with a run-down, exhausted look. Many patients gain a refreshed and brighter-eyed look after the surgery. 

  • Improve vision: Oftentimes, sagging skin on the upper eyelid can cause visual impairments as the skin obstructs the visual field. This can make it difficult to carry out normal day to day activities. While Blepharoplasty is primarily a cosmetic procedure, it does offer functional benefits and can help improve vision.

  • Smooth forehead: Those who deal with visual impairments from excess skin on the upper eyelid, may have to constantly raise their eyebrows in order to see better. As a result, the repeated lifting can cause deep lines and wrinkles to form. Once the excess skin is removed during the procedure, patients are able to reduce the lines and wrinkles that form. 

  • Improve confidence: Those who feel insecure or unhappy with their eye’s appearance may choose to undergo Blepharoplasty to improve their overall facial aesthetic. Patients typically feel overall happier and more confident once they see their results.
