Blepharoplasty (Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery) is the third most common Cosmetic Plastic Surgery. Only Breast Augmentation and Liposuction are performed more frequently.
Why is Blepharoplasty so Popular?
Blepharoplasty is popular with both men and women because not only does it reverse one of the most obvious signs of aging, it also makes us look more alert and interested. As we age, the eyelids tend to loosen and sag. Excess upper eyelid skin can block peripheral vision and cause a heavy sensation as it comes to rest on the eyelashes. Excess lower eyelid skin and fat can give lower eyelid bags, even festooning. This can shadow beneath the eyelids and compound any darkness already present due to pigmentation or vascular coloration. Both excess upper eyelid skin and lower eyelid bags make us look tired, even when we are well rested.
KRON4 Body Beautiful Television Presentation
Last month I had the opportunity to discuss how to improve the appearance and function of the eyelids on KRON4’s Body Beautiful. The show is broadcast live and gives San Francisco Bay Area viewers the opportunity to call in and ask questions. The (415) number used during the video was for the live show.
