The eyes may be the windows to the soul, but the effects of aging can often obscure the view. Loose skin and excess fat can cause your eyelids to droop or become puffy, making you look tired or older than you really are.
With eyelid surgery—also known as blepharoplasty—board-certified South Carolina plastic surgeon Dr. Ted Vaughn can remove unnecessary fat and skin from your upper and/or lower eyelids, resulting in a smoother, rested, more youthful appearance. Eyelid surgery is often performed in conjunction with a brow lift, a complementary procedure that targets sagging skin of the forehead area above the eyebrows.
Your individual goals and needs will determine the specifics of your eyelid surgery, and Dr. Vaughn will discuss your options with you during your personal blepharoplasty consultation. Eyelid surgery can be an effective treatment for both male and female patients who are in good general physical health.
