The Benefits of Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery

The areas surrounding the eyes are often the first to show noticeable signs of facial aging. Sometimes, no matter how hard we try to maintain good sleeping habits and healthy skin care regimens, we simply cannot prevent wrinkles, excess skin, or a “baggy” appearance from forming around the eyes. Fortunately, cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) can be a very effective way to address those concerns and give you a more youthful and refreshed look.

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery listed eyelid surgery as the third most commonly performed plastic surgery procedure in 2014. Dr. Jess Prischmann is extensively trained and experienced in both upper and lower eyelid surgery procedures and has seen firsthand the positive differences they can make for an individual’s entire facial appearance.

Benefits of cosmetic eyelid surgery may include:

Eyelid surgery can also be very beneficial for patients who experience obstructed vision because of loose skin hanging over the eyes. We’ll talk more about functional eyelid surgery in our next blog entry and explain the many advantages the procedure can bring to patients suffering from this common condition.
