Can Eyelid Surgery Treat My Symptoms of Aging?
Aging in the eye area is very complex and often requires a combination of procedures to treat successfully. The most common symptoms of aging in the eye area that eyelid surgery is used to treat are:
Excess, hanging skin in the upper or lower eyelid
Puffy fat deposits in the lower eyelid
Droopy upper eyelids
Hollow areas under the eyes that give the appearance of dark “bags”
The Ideal Candidate for Eyelid Surgery
The ideal eyelid surgery candidate has all of the following characteristics:
Aging in the eye area that can be treated with eyelid surgery
Good general health
Realistic expectations for the procedure
What Does Good General Health Mean?
Being in good general health means that you lead a generally healthy lifestyle, exercise, and are near your ideal weight. Smoking can adversely affect your recovery and results. To be a candidate for eyelid surgery, you will have to quit smoking for the procedure. The longer you can quit, the better results you’ll have. During your consultation, your provider will discuss your medical history, and it is important to share all relevant information, including all medications and natural supplements you are taking.
