Make Under-Eye Bags a Thing of the Past with Blepharoplasty
While under-eye bags are a normal, common occurrence due to age and genetics, they are among the most common issues people seek to treat or eliminate. If you’ve tried every cream, DIY hack, and beauty tool under the sun for your under-eye bags, blepharoplasty in Miami may be just the thing for you.
How Is Blepharoplasty An Under-Eye Bags Treatment?
The eyes are one of the first facial features that reveal our actual age. As we age, our eyelid skin will begin to lose its elasticity and could start to sag or droop. Excess fatty tissue may accumulate, forming “bags” beneath the eyes.
A band is present in the eyes that holds back fatty tissue. This band may begin to loosen with time, and the fat will slide forward, stretching out the skin. At the same time, the upper eyelid will impart hooding with the lower, showing bags and puffiness.
Therefore, blepharoplasty works as an under-eye bags treatment because it removes excess fat and skin while tightening the eye. As a result, you’ll have a more awake, youthful appearance. The procedure addresses the tired, older, and aged look in the eyes.
Blepharoplasty surgery in Miami starts with small incisions in the upper eyelid crease and right underneath the lower eyelid lashes. Once they heal, the scarring appears invisible. You’ll need to have stitches in for a couple of days, but the recovery process is very quick.
It’s not uncommon for a patient to undergo blepharoplasty on a Saturday and get the stitches out as early as Monday morning. You can certainly return to work and wear makeup to cover up anything you would like.
How to Treat Under-Eye Bags
However, older patients are not the only ones who opt for blepharoplasty. Genetics, diet, sleeping habits, and even underlying diseases can be causes for under-eye bags. Nevertheless, the age of many blepharoplasty patients is typically in the mid-to-late thirties. This is often when patients begin to see a notable change in the way their eyelids look.
Individuals in their late seventies and early eighties undergo eyelid surgery as well. Blepharoplasty surgery in Miami is an ideal treatment to help both men and women at any age look vibrant, youthful, and refreshed.
The Risks of Blepharoplasty
With every surgical procedure, there are risks and possible side effects. Whether you are treating a medical or cosmetic issue, blepharoplasty comes with its own set of risks. Talking about this with your surgeon is of the utmost importance. Possible risks of eyelid surgery include:
- Infection and bleeding
- Dry, irritated eyes
- Skin discoloration
- Difficulty closing your eyes or other eyelid problems
- Noticeable scarring
- Temporarily blurred vision or, rarely, loss of eyesight
- Injury to eye muscles
- The need for a follow-up surgery
- Risks associated with surgery in general, including reaction to anesthesia and blood clots
We also recommend talking to your primary doctor about how the risks of blepharoplasty apply to you. Your PCP likely knows you better than your plastic surgeon, so they can accurately weigh the benefits and risks to help you decide if this procedure is a good option.
