Eyelid Surgery in Pennsylvania

Your eyes are one of the most prominent features on your face. If you have beautiful eyes, people may gaze into them for a long time, captivated by their spark. Unfortunately, your eyes are also one of the first features on your face to show signs of aging.  Environmental factors, heredity, lifestyle choices, and excessive sun exposure can cause the skin around your upper and lower eyelids to develop wrinkles and become baggy. This may cause you to look chronically fatigued and older than you actually are.

Eyelid surgery, called blepharoplasty, can be performed to reverse the signs of aging in your eyes, helping you look as young as you feel. At Eye Care Specialists, we have have helped many people in the Northeast Pennsylvania area turn back the clock with blepharoplasty. To learn more about how you can benefit from this cosmetic procedure, please call 1-877-783-4477 today to schedule your initial consultation.

Am I a Candidate for Blepharoplasty Eyelid Surgery?

Ideal blepharoplasty candidates have:

  • Excess upper eyelid skin that interferes with vision

  • Puffy pouches of fat in the upper or lower eyelids that create a worn, tired, or aged appearance

  • Sagging or wrinkled skin in the upper or lower eyelids

  • Lost or hidden natural upper eyelid crease

While there is no minimum age for eyelid surgery, most patients who opt for the procedure are over the age of 40 and would like to restore a more youthful appearance to their eyes. In addition, you should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of your procedure.

Your Blepharoplasty Procedure

Blepharoplasty is generally performed on an outpatient basis. During your procedure, excess fat and skin in the upper and lower eyelids are removed to correct drooping and eliminate the appearance of puffy bags beneath your eyes.

While it generally takes 2-4 weeks to heal after your procedure, you should be able to resume normal activities within a few days. Blepharoplasty can be performed as a stand-alone procedure or in conjunction with a brow lift for enhanced results.
