As we get older we all start notice those common signs of aging in different places. For many people the delicate skin around the eyes is often the first area they see lines, creases, puffiness, drooping and bags. These common aesthetic eyelid complaints not only prematurely age us but can make us look more sad or tired than we feel or care to project. Through Blepharoplasty, Dr. Pearlman Hicks has helped many men and women achieve a rejuvenated eyelid appearance to make them look more well-rested, alert, and youthful. Blepharoplasty may be performed on the upper and/or lower eyelids. In some cases Blepharoplasty, also known as an Eyelid Lift, is performed in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as a brow lift, face lift, botox or dermal fillers for optimum results.
Ideal candidates for a Blepharoplasty procedure are in good health with realistic expectations for the procedure and it’s potential outcome. In most cases, patients are 35 years old or older, but some younger patients may have eyelid drooping or bags due to genetic predisposition.
