Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, and Dr. Brown perform blepharoplasty for patients in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Annapolis and the surrounding areas of Maryland.
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is the most common facial plastic surgery procedure performed in America. The eyes are one of the most powerful facial features as they portray your emotions without using words. However, with aging, sun exposure or genetics, the sensitive skin around your eyes may begin to droop and wrinkle. This can age your face significantly and may cause your confidence to fade. Many patients in the Baltimore area are turning to Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, and Dr. Brown to boost their appearance and bring the vibrancy back to their eyes with eyelid surgery.
What Is Blepharoplasty?
Droopy eyelids can make you look much older than you really are, not to mention that they can also impair your vision. Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure, also known as eyelid surgery, that is designed to improve the appearance of your eyelids. Eyelid surgery can be performed on your upper, lower or even both eyelids. Lower blepharoplasty is performed to correct puffiness and bags under your eyes that can make you look worn out. It is done by reducing excess skin, reducing wrinkles and improving the shape of your lower eyelid by carefully cutting out obtrusive skin and fat. Sometimes tightening the eyelid may be recommended as well to help correct droopiness or sagging skin. This procedure can also improve your vision while giving your eyes a more alert and youthful appearance.
Benefits Of Blepharoplasty
The main benefits of eyelid surgery with Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, and Dr. Brown is a tremendous reduction in bagginess from your lower eyelids and potentially the extraction of excess skin from your upper eyelids. The brightness of your eyes is hidden in the shadows of puffy eyelids, which is why you can take years off your appearance with eyelid surgery at the Facial Plastic Surgicenter. Baggy or droopy eyelids can be addressed by reducing excess skin on the upper or lower eyelids. A more refreshed look is often the result when eye bags are improved with a blepharoplasty, as they can tend to make you look tired and worn. When a lack of elasticity plus the constant pull from gravity has caused excessive skin to collect on the upper and lower eyelids, then you may be a good candidate for eyelid surgery.
Who is a Good Candidate for Blepharoplasty
As you age, your eyelids stretch and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess fat may gather above and below your eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids and bags under your eyes. Your eyes are the windows to the soul, but if they are shaded by puffy eyelids you can tend to look older and more tired than you really are. When you’re tired of looking exhausted because of puffy eyelids, then you may be a good candidate for eyelid surgery. Blepharoplasty can make your eyes appear younger and more alert so you have clear, youthful-looking eyes that sparkle. Schedule your consultation now with Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, or Dr. Brown to find out if eyelid surgery is right for you.
How Is Blepharoplasty Performed?
At the office of Dr. Papel Dr. Kontisn and Dr. Brown, patients can have eyelid surgery on the upper or lower eyelids. Upper eyelid surgery is performed by making an incision in the natural lines and creases that occur on your lids to minimize scarring. The lower eyelid is often approached from the inside, known as a transconjunctival approach. In this way, the fat bags can be contoured without making a skin incision. This reduces scarring, as well as any downward pull on the eyelid.
Blepharoplasty procedures generally take between one to two hours. The procedure causes little discomfort and requires minimal recovery time. Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, and Dr. Brown are experienced with giving patients youthful results from eyelid surgery.
