Am I Ready For Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)?

Am I ready for Eyelid SurgeryIf you’re considering upper or lower eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) the best first step is to come into the office for a consultation. There I will evaluate your eyelids, the health of your eyes, the position of your eyebrows, and your eyelids skin. All these structures are linked and contribute to decision making in eyelid surgery.

Also you need to understand and be prepared for what is involved with the surgery and recovery. It is important to make sure you have adequate time to rest and heal from the surgery.

As with any plastic surgery, the results will be best if you are in good general health and a non-smoker. Also, a positive attitude and realistic expectations help to make you a good candidate for this procedure.

Does Age Matter?

Ultimately age is not a deciding factor in eyelid surgery. I see some patients with lower eyelid bags that they developed in their 20’s and I see other patients in their late 70’s that are considering eyelid surgery for the first time. Timing for surgery depends on your genetic makeup, lifestyle, and how your eyelids have aged over the years.
