Eyelid rejuvenation with blepharoplasty

As we age, our skin loses elasticity, leading to wrinkles and saggy eyelid folds. Eyelid surgery in San Jose, also called blepharoplasty, when performed with precision, can restore a far more youthful look to your upper face and eyes. This procedure involves making small incisions in the natural eyelid creases to remove excess skin and fatty tissue.

How does blepharoplasty work?

By removing excess skin and fat, as well as tightening muscles and tendons, eyelid rejuvenation creates a more youthful appearance. In addition, eyelid rejuvenation can also help to improve eyesight by removing tissue that blocks the field of vision. 

Who is a good candidate for eyelid rejuvenation?

If you are unhappy with sagging eyelids, it may be a good time to consider eyelid rejuvenation surgery. The surgery can provide many benefits, including a more youthful appearance and improved vision. However, not everyone is a good candidate. 

The best way to find out if you are a good candidate is to consult with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons who will thoroughly evaluate your unique condition. During your consultation, our surgeon will assess your individual needs and speak with you about your goals to help you plan a natural-looking rejuvenation.

What to expect during your eyelid rejuvenation consultation?

Some of the issues our surgeon will take into consideration include the amount of excess skin on your lids, the severity of the sagging, and your overall health. If you are a good candidate for this surgery, our surgeon will develop a customized treatment plan to help you achieve the most natural-looking outcome.

Upper eyelid rejuvenation treatment options

Upper eyelid blepharoplasty in San Jose is a surgical procedure that is performed to improve the appearance of the upper eyelids. The surgery involves removing excess skin and fat from the upper lids, which may be causing a droopy, tired look. In some cases, the muscles that support the eyelids may also be tightened. Upper eyelid blepharoplasty can be performed for cosmetic reasons or to improve vision by increasing the amount of light that enters the eye.

Ptosis and upper eyelid surgery

In general, ptosis correction is only needed for upper eyelid rejuvenation when the drooping is severe enough to interfere with vision. Sometimes, a brow lift may be advised to achieve a more significant level of upper face rejuvenation. Drooping skin may impact one or both eyes and occurs in people of all ages, although most commonly in older adults. 

Several factors can cause ptosis, including:

•    Muscle weakness
•    Injury
•    Nerve damage
•    Certain medical conditions

    In some cases, ptosis may be hereditary. The treatment for ptosis requires identifying the underlying causes, which may include redundant skin folds, lax muscles, or excess fat. In many cases, surgery may be required to correct the problem. Regardless of the cause, ptosis affects peripheral vision, restricting the ability to drive.

    Is lower eyelid rejuvenation possible without surgery?

    If you're concerned about loose or saggy skin around your eyes, there are many non-surgical options that can help, including:

    • Microneedling or collagen induction therapy can stimulate the production of new collagen, resulting in firmer skin.
    • Chemical peels can also improve the appearance of the skin by removing dead skin cells and stimulating cell turnover.
    • Laser treatments use heat to stimulate the contraction of existing collagen fibers, resulting in smoother skin.
    • Radiofrequency and ultrasound treatments can also be used to produce temporary skin contraction and a more youthful appearance.
    • Injectable fillers are another option for eyelid rejuvenation. These fillers can add volume to the area under the eyes and help to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. 

    During your consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons, you will together determine which treatment is right for you or if surgery is your best solution.
