Eyelid Rejuvenation Through Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty | Eric S. Schaffer, MD FACS | San Antonio , TXFacial rejuvenation is an important topic of discussion these days. It isn’t that demand has grown; men and women have always demonstrated the desire for extended youthfulness. What we believe is that there are advances in medicine in recent years and this encourages patients to talk about aesthetic improvements. Interestingly, the development of injectable anti-aging treatments like Botox and dermal fillers has paved the way for heightened interest in surgical techniques like eyelid rejuvenation, or blepharoplasty. Here, we want to discuss what this surgery can do.

Why Do People Seek Blepharoplasty?

There are several personal reasons that one may seek a blepharoplasty. Some people want to have skin on their upper eyelids tightened. Some want to eliminate the appearance of dark circles or bags under their eyes. Could such concerns be corrected with injectables? It’s possible, but results do not have longevity, which makes blepharoplasty a more cost-effective approach in the long run. Ultimately, the objective that patients want to reach through blepharoplasty is a younger, friendlier face.

Every blepharoplasty is unique because no two sets of eyes are the same. The technique follows a standard protocol of making an incision in the crease of the upper lid, or along the lash line. Lower blepharoplasty requires incisions hidden within the eyelid. This type of internal incision is not painful, and it completely hides minor surgical scars. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and may be combined with other procedures, such as a mid-face lift or a brow lift.

When is the Right Time for Blepharoplasty?

This may be the biggest question that people ask. The answer is simple. Get blepharoplasty when you want to gain long-term facial rejuvenation. You may obtain dermal fillers first, or Botox, to test out what your face would look like after surgical eyelid rejuvenation. Many people do this. On the other hand, you may also travel a straight road to cosmetic surgery, beginning with a comprehensive consultation in our San Antonio office.
