Eyelid Surgery Can Rejuvenate Your Appearance and Minimize Signs of Aging

Featured Image

In what can seem like no time at all, many people begin to notice their eyelids looking heavy, wrinkled, and saggy. Not only that, but the delicate skin of the upper and lower eyelids often shows signs of aging earlier than expected — many of which advance more quickly than in other areas. If you feel that your heavy or wrinkled eyelids are making you look older than you'd like, cosmetic eyelid surgery can be an excellent solution for refreshing your appearance and virtually taking years off the clock. Here, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang of Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Atlanta, GA gives a closer look at the benefits of eyelid surgery for correcting signs of aging and answers popular questions about eyelid lift surgery.

Who needs blepharoplasty surgery?

As we age, the delicate skin around the eyes is prone to developing various aesthetic concerns that can significantly impact one's overall appearance and self-esteem. Eyelid surgery — formally known as a blepharoplasty — is a versatile procedure that can address myriad age-related issues, including:

  • Drooping or sagging eyelids
  • Puffy under-eye bags
  • Excess skin and wrinkles
  • Impaired vision due to heavy eyelids
  • Hollowing or sunken appearance
  • Uneven eyelid creases
  • Fine lines and Crow's feet
  • Tired or aged appearance

In addition to improving signs of aging around the eyes, blepharoplasty can also help to address naturally hooded eyes and other concerns that may not necessarily be related to aging.

How is eyelid lift surgery performed?

During eyelid surgery, Dr. Mang utilizes advanced surgical techniques to rejuvenate the eyes and restore a more youthful and refreshed appearance. The procedure typically involves the removal of excess skin, fat, and tissue from the upper and/or lower eyelids, followed by meticulous reshaping and tightening of the remaining structures. By addressing the underlying causes of aging around the eyes, eyelid surgery can produce long-lasting and natural-looking results, enhancing both aesthetic appeal and visual function. Because each patient's concerns, goals, facial anatomy, skin elasticity, and other characteristics are unique, Dr. Mang carefully customizes each procedure with these factors in mind. In some cases, patients may benefit from an upper or lower eyelid lift, while other patients may achieve the most complete and desirable transformation with a combination of upper and lower blepharoplasty.

Can eyelid surgery fix hooded eyes?

Hooded eyes, which are characterized by excess skin that hangs over the eyelid crease, can create a heavy or tired appearance and may even impair vision in severe cases. Fortunately, eyelid surgery offers an effective solution for correcting hooded eyes by removing excess, hanging eyelid skin, and repositioning the eyelid tissues to create a more defined and open-eyed look.

Which kind of eyelid surgery is suitable for Asian eyes?

For patients of Asian descent seeking to enhance the appearance of their eyes, double eyelid surgery, also known as Asian eyelid surgery, offers a specialized approach to creating a natural-looking eyelid crease. This procedure involves the creation of a second eyelid fold above the existing one, resulting in a more defined upper eyelid contour and a wider, brighter appearance. Dr. Mang's expertise in Asian facial procedures enables him to customize the surgical technique to complement the unique anatomical characteristics and cultural preferences of Asian patients. If you have specific questions about how Asian facial cosmetic surgery procedures — including Asian eyelid lift, Asian rhinoplasty, and others — may be beneficial for helping enhance your appearance without sacrificing your unique cultural identity, don't hesitate to discuss your concerns and goals with Dr. Mang.
