Perhaps you’ve been told you look tired when you’re not. Or, you’re asked if you’re sick or have been crying. Perhaps you’re even having trouble seeing because of your drooping eyelids.
Puffy eyes, under-eye bags, wrinkles, and sagging skin around your eyes can make you look older than you are; and even interfere with vision. This is where an eyelid lift can be a boost to your appearance and to your quality of life.
An eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can remove excess skin around your eyes, tighten sagging skin, eliminate fatty deposits and dark circles under your eyes and correct drooping lower eyelids. In Fort Wayne, Indiana, many patients choose blepharoplasty for eye improvement. You can reduce fine wrinkles under the eyes and lift skin that folds above your eyes. You can look more awake, rested and healthy with an eyelid lift.
If you’re considering an eyelid lift, you’ll first meet with Dr. Lee. at Aspire’s Fort Wayne office. He will take the time to get to know you and talk about your goals for your eyelid lift.
Be prepared to share your medical history, including previous surgeries, medical conditions, drug allergies and current medications. Dr. Lee will conduct an exam to assess the elasticity of your skin, take measurements of your face and take photos for your records. You are sure to be in good hands; Dr. Lee has successfully prepared many patient’s for blepharoplasties in the Angola, Warsaw, and Huntington areas.
If your eyebrows are sagging as well, Dr. Lee may recommend a forehead lift in addition to your eyelid lift. Botox, injectable fillers or laser resurfacing may be necessary as well to achieve the look you’re after.
Tell Dr. Lee if you have any of the following conditions, which may affect your eyelid surgery:
