Blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelift or eyelid surgery, is an ideal way to restore a youthful and alert appearance to your eyes. If bags under the eyes or puffy, tired looking eyelids are detracting from your appearance, you may be a great candidate for blepharoplasty. The best way to determine if this procedure is right for you is through a one-on-one consultation with Virginia blepharoplasty surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside.
Blepharoplasty candidates must be:
- Healthy and free of eye infections
- Prepared for a surgical procedure and recovery time
Reasons to consider blepharoplasty include:
- Bags or dark circles under the eyes
- Wrinkles or excess skin around the eyelids
- Droopy or sagging eyelids
Because many of these conditions are part of the aging process, some people benefit from a combination of blepharoplasty and other facial plastic surgery procedures. During your initial consultation, Dr. Gartside will listen to your concerns, assess your facial features, and make recommendations based on your specific needs.
