The Eyelid Tuck: Who Is A Good Candidate?
One of the most common age-related changes in our skin is the elasticity around the eyes. While we all develop some fine lines around our eyes as we age, for some, the skin around the eyes can start to sag more prominently. Sagging eyelid skin can disturb the natural contour of the upper eyelid, making one look more tired and older. In some cases, the sagging skin can actually impede eyesight. A simple surgical procedure called blepharoplasty can trim back the skin and give the patient a more youthful look, and in some cases, better vision. This procedure takes about 1 hour, and can be performed under local anesthetic. Speak to the physicians at Sanova Dermatology and find out if an eyelid tuck is right for you.
