Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty) in Colorado Springs
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is the procedure used to restore the appearance associated with youthful, well-rested, vibrant eyes. It is ideal for patients who have excess skin and fat of the eyelids causing a tired, aged appearance. Upper and lower eyelid surgery involves removal of excess skin and fat to alleviate this tired look. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty removes the puffy, baggy appearance to the lower eyelids as well.
Occasionally, the excess overhanging skin of the upper eyelids can cause obstruction of vision. In some of these cases, the muscles in the upper eyelids need to be tightened to prevent the eyelids from interfering with vision. In patients of Asian origin, eyelid surgery can create an upper eyelid crease, if desired, and a more youthful appearance, while still maintaining Asian ethnicity.
