Good Candidates for Eyelid Surgery

As you get older, your lower and upper eyelids begin to sag. Bags beneath the eyes start to show and upper lids droop. At The Plastic Surgery Group of Rochester, we want to help you look younger and fresher through blepharoplasty in Rochester. Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the eyelids for a more youthful appearance.

Who are good candidates for eyelid surgery?

The ideal candidate for blepharoplasty is someone who has realistic expectations. Although it can improve your overall look and self-confidence, the result may not match that of your ideal look or change the structure of the face. Also, eyelid surgery does not have an effect on the wrinkles on the face or the dark circles found below your eyes. Eyebrows that are sagging are also not affected by blepharoplasty.

Good candidates for surgery are people with good overall health and are unhappy with sagging upper eyelids and puffy lower lids. The procedure is appropriate for both men and women. Anyone can have blepharoplasty.

A lot of patients who undergo the surgery are more than 35 years old. However, if droopy lids run in the family, you may choose to have eyelid surgery at a younger age.

Before undergoing surgery, it is important that you know what your goals are. During your initial consultation, you can share your goals and expectations to one of our doctors. You have to be realistic and know how the recovery process goes. Ask whatever questions you have and learn about the potential complications of blepharoplasty before the procedure.

Do not hesitate to ask if you are a good candidate for blepharoplasty or not. Set up an appointment with The Plastic Surgery Group of Rochester today by calling 585-922-5840 and find out how you can look younger and fresher through eyelid surgery!
