Eyelid Surgery: Because You Want to Look as Young as You Feel

Our eyes reveal so much about ourselves that they are known as "windows to the soul." However, as we age, the skin on the upper eyelids stretches, muscles weaken, and fat pockets become more visible. As a result, droopy eyelids and bulging bags make us look tired and older. Droopy eyelids can block a portion of your field of vision.

Fortunately, there are excellent treatment options to help you look and feel younger. At Brooks Plastic Surgery in Hollywood, Florida, Christopher Brooks, MD, and the team, offer eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty -- an in-demand procedure for combating the signs of aging. With eyelid surgery, Dr. Brooks can rejuvenate aged skin around the eyes to give you a more youthful facial appearance. Here's what you should know about eyelid surgery.

Eye-catching benefits

We utilize various approaches to help you achieve your cosmetic goals with eyelid surgery. Each of the procedures produces excellent results and can often be combined. 

Upper eyelid surgery

Also known as an eye lift, this procedure involves removing excess skin, muscle, and fat from the upper eyelids. Doctors recommend an eye lift for those who want to look younger and more refreshed, as well as improve their field of vision.

Lower eyelid surgery

With lower eyelid surgery, we create a lower eyelid that is smooth, wrinkle-free, and free of bags, essentially turning back the hands of time to leave you with a brighter, more youthful-looking appearance around the eyes.

Brow lift

We use a brow lift to raise sagging eyebrows to give you a more youthful, alert appearance. With incisions in the hairline, brow, or forehead, a brow lift can be cosmetic or functional. Brow lifts can also help with wrinkles on the forehead.

Droopy upper eyelid repair

An upper eyelid that hangs abnormally low can cause you to appear exhausted and worn out, but it can also impair your vision. To address this, we tighten the levator muscle, which is responsible for raising the eyelid. As a result, the eyelid opens wider, and you have a more youthful appearance.

Who benefits from eyelid surgery?

You can benefit from eyelid surgery at all stages of eyelid aging. Some patients decide to have blepharoplasty at the very first signs of eyelid aging. These patients are typically in their 40s and want to delay the onset of visible aging. 

Skin laxity on the upper and lower eyelids is common in patients with moderate signs of eyelid aging. Patients with laxity frequently appear tired, stressed, or angry. Using blepharoplasty at this stage can effectively reduce puffy bags and drooping skin.

Eyelid surgery is also beneficial for patients with advanced signs of eyelid aging. Dr. Brooks provides customized eyelid surgery to address your specific aging eyelid issues. If you have advanced signs of eyelid aging, Dr. Brooks will remove a precise amount from the upper eyelids and lift eyelid fat so that your eyes appear wider, brighter, and more youthful.

With eyelid surgery, you gain cosmetic and functional improvements with natural-looking results. As one of the first areas to show telltale signs of aging, improving the appearance of your eyes can shave years off your face and restore a more youthful facial appearance.
