Glendale facial plastic surgeon, Dr. A. John Vartanian, uses blepharoplasty, commonly known as eyelid rejuvenation or eyelid lift, to remove excess skin and fat around the upper and lower eyelids.
As people age, excess skin and lax muscles around the eyes are common. Dr. Vartanian says environmental and behavioral factors, such as excess sun exposure, genetic predisposition, smoking, and stress can also contribute to the appearance of under eye bags and heavy eyelids.
Advantages of blepharoplasty include refreshed appearance, reduced puffiness, firmer eye area and reduced sagging
Patients with fat deposits, under eye bags, sagging or puffy skin or obstructed vision due to excess skin, maybe a candidate for blepharoplasty.
