Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is performed to remove excess skin and fat tissue for both functional and cosmetic reasons. As we age, the muscles around the eyes can weaken, causing fat deposits to shift and making your eyes appear small and tired. If you have puffiness under the eyes, sagging upper eyelids, or fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, this procedure may be able to take years off your appearance and give you a more alert, refreshed look. Eyelid surgery benefits can also include improved eyesight when excess skin is obstructing your vision. Dr. Madhukar G. Chhatre has an excellent track record in patient satisfaction and our Kansas City, MO-area practice offers flexible financing options, such as CareCredit®, to make treatment more affordable.
Aesthetic and Health Benefits
Eyelid surgery is a relatively simple procedure that can address cosmetic concerns, such as excess tissue and heavy bags under the eyes, which make you appear constantly tired and older than you actually are. In some cases, this procedure may be recommended to treat certain medical conditions, such as ptosis or swollen eyelids, which can cause eye infections and obstructed vision.
Refreshing your eyelids can improve your overall appearance, helping you look and feel younger and gain more self-confidence. The procedure can also improve some patients' vision.
Improved Confidence and More
During the procedure, Dr. Chhatre can perform eye surgery on your upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or a combination of both to fit your unique needs and accomplish your overall health goals. Patients who undergo this procedure are generally able to reduce puffy bags, dark circles, and fine lines by tightening skin and muscles around the eyes. Refreshing your eyelids can improve your overall appearance, helping you look and feel younger and gain more self-confidence.
By smoothing and removing drooping skin on the upper eyelids, patients can also correct vision obstruction, improving their health, mental well-being, and overall quality of life. Once you have fully recovered, Dr. Chhatre can enhance your results even more with BOTOX® Cosmetic or another similar treatment.
