As you age, the muscles that support your eyelids weaken, causing droopy lids, sagging brows and bags under your eyes. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, helps many of our and Fort Collins patients correct these unwanted effects of gravity and time.
By removing excess tissue from your upper, lower or both eyelids, blepharoplasty can help you look years younger, and even improve your vision.
Eyelid surgery may be right for you if you experience:
- Bags under your eyes
- Droopy lower eyelids
- Excess skin on the upper eyelids
- Impaired peripheral vision due to sagging eyelids
- Droopy or baggy upper eyelids
Blepharoplasty has a high patient-satisfaction rating and is an incredibly effective way to help you look younger, more alert and less angry. Eyelid surgery is often combined with other facial surgical procedures, such as a brow lift or face lift.
If you would like to learn more about blepharoplasty, and whether you are a good candidate for the procedure, your step is to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Dennis Gonyon. During your initial visit, Dr. Gonyon will listen closely to your aesthetic goals, answer your questions and offer specific recommendations.
