Lid Lift

 

Author: John G. Yassin, M.D., See Clearly Vision

Many people begin to notice an increase in ‘extra’ skin in the upper and lower brow areas of the eye. This change will cause the appearance of droopy or puffy eyelids. It can be the result of aging or may be hereditary in its nature. Allergies and smoking can cause the additional skin to appear at a relatively young age. To some, this may simply be an issue of vanity and they would like the skin removed to look more youthful. For others, it becomes an issue of function; the droopy skin impedes vision and can make daily activities challenging.

Regardless of whether the skin is causing cosmetic or visual problems, there is a solution. Blepharoplasty, the medical term for a lid lift, is one of the most common surgical procedures done to correct “baggy eyelids”. The procedure is fast, done on an out-patient basis, and comes with manageable discomfort. A proper examination by your eye care professional can determine if surgical correction is appropriate and would be beneficial to you.
