When Should I Consider Blepharoplasty?

We all get bags under the eyes from time to time. Whether burning the midnight oil to meet an important deadline or staying up with a newborn, baggy eyes are universally recognized as signs of sleepless nights. But if your eyelids don’t spring back after a good night’s rest, it may be time to think about blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). Dr. Roberta Gartside is happy to answer any questions you have about eyelid surgery.

Eyelid surgery involves removing excess skin to eliminate that baggy, puffy look. It is highly effective for eyes that look tired, and blepharoplasty will deliver a smoother, more rested appearance.

Blepharoplasty is, however, not effective for crow’s feet, frown lines, or droopy eyebrows. If you suffer from one or more of these conditions, Dr. Gartside is pleased to offer other solutions that are likely to deliver the results you want.

Patients considering eyelid surgery should be in generally good health, not smoke, have no major medical eye conditions, and have realistic goals that can be met with blepharoplasty. Dr. Gartside will go over all of these points in your consultation and determine if eyelid surgery is right for you.
