Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, reduces the appearance of bags or circles beneath the eyes. Individuals whose eyes appear tired or droopy often discover that blepharoplasty improves not just their eyes, but their entire appearance.

The eyelids are among the first parts of the face to visibly age. When patients come to us for facial plastic surgery, we often recommend blepharoplasty as part of the solution because of the dramatic benefits it confers for what is otherwise a relatively minor cosmetic procedure.

This procedure is an extremely effective facial rejuvenation option that will help you reverse the signs of aging. However, not everyone is a candidate. The best way to learn if blepharoplasty is right for you is to speak with Dr. Roberta Gartside in person. Please call 703-742-8004 today to schedule a consultation. Our offices conveniently serve the Washington DC area.

What Can Eyelid Surgery Correct?

Eyelid surgery can correct several conditions that cause you to look older than you feel:

  • Sagging skin that impairs vision
  • Puffiness in the eyelids
  • Bags and circles beneath the eyes
  • Fine wrinkles on the lower eyelid
  • Droopy eyes

Candidacy Criteria for Eyelid Surgery

Most individuals who would like blepharoplasty and are physically healthy may do so. A good candidate for eyelid surgery is:

  • In generally good health
  • Aware of what eyelid surgery can and cannot address
  • Generally positive and has realistic expectations and aesthetic goals
  • A non-smoker, or is willing to quit
  • Free of serious health conditions that affect the eye
  • Prepared to follow the doctor’s postoperative recovery instructions

Tired, droopy eyes don’t have to get you down. With today’s cutting edge eyelid procedures, you can enjoy a brighter, more youthful appearance with minimal downtime.
