Do you ever feel like your eyelids make you look fatigued or upset? Perhaps you’ve noticed the sagging of your eyelids is impairing your vision. Eyelid surgery can be one of the most transformative facial plastic surgery procedures Dr. Waleed Ezzat performs. It’s a popular option for both men and women looking to enhance their appearance, particularly those who struggle with droopy eyelids and under-eye puffiness.
What Is Eyelid Surgery?
Also known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery is a surgical procedure that removes loose, sagging skin on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. During the procedure, Dr. Ezzat can also remove fat pads and other tissue that is contributing to an aged appearance.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
Generally, ideal candidates for eyelid surgery include those who suffer from droopy lower eyelids, those who have sagging upper lids caused by a buildup of fatty tissue beneath the skin, and people who are experiencing vision impairment due to sagging upper lids. Puffiness and bags under the eyes can also be corrected with eyelid surgery.
What Is Surgery and Recovery Like?
Most of the blepharoplasties Dr. Ezzat performs are completed in 60 to 90 minutes. He can pair this procedure with other facial surgeries, including a brow lift or facelift, and nonsurgical skin rejuvenation options like Morpheus8 radiofrequency remodeling.
