How Does Eyelid Surgery (Cosmetic Blepharoplasty) Help Droopy Eyelids?
Upper eyelid surgery, sometimes referred to as an “eyelid lift” or “upper eye lift surgery,” rejuvenates the upper eyelid area, makes the eyes more alert, and takes weight off the eyelids. There are many aspects of cosmetic eyelid surgery to discuss with Dr. Chandler surgeon. It is important to realize that any actual “droopy” or closing eyelid would require repair of a muscle weakness, known as Ptosis, and standard eyelid aging. In cases where ptosis is present, a specialized ptosis repair might be needed.
Often, Dr. Chandler combines both blepharoplasty and ptosis surgery (repair) to achieve optimal upper eyelid surgery results. Many patients express a sensation of relief post-surgery, describing it as if “a weight was lifted off their eyelids,” leading to more open and vibrant eyes. For a detailed understanding and consultation, consider reaching out to Dr. Chandler.”
