For men and women in Maryland, eyelid surgery (called a blepharoplasty) offers relief from a tired, haggard appearance. Loose, sagging skin, excessive fatty deposits and puffiness in your upper eyelids, or excess skin, wrinkles, and bags in your lower lids can not only make you look older, but impair your vision as well.
For healthy men and women, eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper eyelid, the lower eyelid, or both to offer a more youthful and alert appearance. The best candidates for Maryland eyelid surgery are generally healthy, non-smokers with specific, realistic expectations. For cosmetic surgery patients in the area, eyelid surgery is best for those 35 years of age or older, though younger patients sometimes also seek it and benefit from the results. Eyelid surgery should not be performed on those with serious eye conditions. Your ophthalmologist and Dr. Garazo can help you determine if blepharoplasty is a safe, effective option for you.
Though eyelid surgery can address many aesthetic facial issues, offering positive results for many, it cannot correct crow’s feet, lift sagging eyebrows, or improve dark circles beneath the eyes. For a more complete rejuvenation, blepharoplasty can be combined with other facial procedures such as a facelift, brow lift, or Botox® Cosmetic treatments. Maryland cosmetic surgeon Dr. Henry Garazo will carefully explore your aesthetic options with you to help you achieve the rejuvenated look you seek safely and effectively.
