Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure for correcting sagging upper-eyelid skin, worn-out eyelid muscles, and puffy undereye bags. These are common aesthetic issues that naturally occur as a part of the aging process. However, younger individuals may also notice these issues developing early on in their lives, which can cause them to appear older than their actual age.
Dr. Demetri Arnaoutakis is a highly skilled facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and provides his patients in the areas of Beverly Hills and Tampa with beautiful and natural-looking results. Dr. Demetri combines his keen understanding of facial aesthetics with his technical prowess to give the eyes a more vibrant and youthful appearance.
There are varying degrees of eyelid sagging that a person can experience. In general, if you are unhappy with the way your eyelids alter your appearance, then you are a good candidate for eyelid surgery.
In severe cases, the degree of sagging in the upper eyelids may reach the point where it partially obscures the patient’s peripheral vision, which can diminish their quality of life. In these cases, eyelid surgery can improve both form and function.
If you have puffy bags under your eyes, you are also a good candidate for surgery. While there are treatments that claim to be effective at reducing puffiness, they often provide little to no results. The only way to properly address the issue is to have the excess fat underneath the eyelids either partially removed or repositioned.
Upper-eyelid surgery is performed by making small incisions across the upper eyelids. These incisions are made within the natural creases of the upper eyelids to help hide any post-surgical scars for a more natural appearance.
Dr. Demetri will tighten stretched eyelid muscles and remove loose skin from the area. He will then lift the upper-eyelid skin and suture the incisions closed. Once fully healed, the eyes will have a refreshed and radiant appearance.
Lower-eyelid surgery helps get rid of puffiness underneath the eyes. For the best possible.
