Candidates for Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
At Millennium Medical, we make sure that each surgery is tailored to the patient and his or her needs. By making sure everyone who comes to our Chevy Chase, Maryland practice receives close attention, we are able to ensure the best possible results. This is actually something crucial to consider when it comes to cosmetic eyelid surgery, which is highly effective for anti-aging facial rejuvenation needs. We want to take this opportunity to look at who are the most ideal candidates for cosmetic eyelid surgery.
How Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery Works
Cosmetic eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids or the lower eyelids. The procedure is performed in order to reduce the drooping, sagging, or bagginess of the eyelids, allowing a patient to look years younger in the process.
General Candidates for Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
To qualify for cosmetic eyelid surgery, it's important that patients be in generally good health. They should not suffer from any sorts of medical conditions that would make surgery a risky endeavor or potentially hazardous.
It's also important that patients have realistic expectations about what cosmetic eyelid surgery can achieve and what the healing process is like. Having realistic expectations means a better healing experience overall and greater patient satisfaction.
Upper Eyelid Surgery for Anti-Aging Rejuvenation
One of the common reasons for undergoing cosmetic eyelid surgery is to reduce sagging and wrinkling of the upper eyelid. When the upper eyelid is wrinkly or droops, it can make a person look prematurely old, but removal of this excess skin can make you look much younger.
Upper Eyelid Surgery for Improving Vision
Related to the above, sometimes the drooping and sagging of the upper eyelid is so pronounced that the eyelid skin blocks out a portion of the vision. The best way to reduce this blockage in vision is performing a cosmetic eyelid surgery.
Upper Eyelid Surgery for Asian Patients
Many people of Asian descent do not have a fold in the upper eyelid. This can make the eyes appear smaller or narrow. A number of patients wish to undergo cosmetic eyelid surgery in order to create an upper eyelid fold, which can have a noticeable impact on their appearance even though the surgery itself is very subtle.
Lower Eyelid Surgery for Facial Rejuvenation
Puffiness or bagginess of the lower eyelids is a common problem that can cause people to look tired, older than they really are, or haggard. The sure way to reduce this puffiness and bagginess is to undergo a cosmetic eyelid surgery. Sometimes facial liposuction is carefully used to remove this puffiness and bagginess and enhance a patient's overall appearance.
Making the Right Choice for Your Needs
During your consultation at our practice, we will be sure to help you make the best possible decisions regarding your aesthetic goals and your current situation regarding your eyes. Sometimes patients who think eyelid surgery is right for them would actually benefit from other procedures that target different parts of the face around the eye area. This is why the consultation process is so important and why you should schedule a visit to our practice for more information.
