Should I Have My Eyes Done?

Breast augmentation and liposuction are the stars of the plastic surgery industry. However, another cosmetic procedure is making its way to the top in popularity — eyelid surgery, medically known as blepharoplasty. At Cool Springs Plastic Surgery, an increasing number of patients are inquiring about having their eyes done to improve their overall look.

Eyelid enhancement surgery at our practice can either be done on the upper or lower eyelids individually, or both simultaneously. Generally, a tiny incision is made just above the natural crease of the upper eyelids to remove excess fat and skin in upper eyelid surgery. Lower eyelid surgery involves an incision made on the lower lash line to remove excess skin. Overall, blepharoplasty is not just about removing or repositioning fat and removing excess folds of skin, it is about restoring the eyelids’ youthful contours. Our Cool Springs Plastic Surgery team seeks to produce the most natural-looking results.

You should have your eyes done if you have the following specific concerns:

  • Under eye puffiness
  • Hooding of the upper lids
  • Eyelid drooping or sagging

You should also be in good physical health without any existing medical conditions that could negatively affect surgical outcomes. Individuals with thyroid issues are advised to have the condition placed under control via medications before surgery. This has to do with how thyroid problems exacerbate swelling during recovery. And, finally, you need to have realistic expectations of the procedure.
