Questions About Blepharoplasty

Serving Greenwood, Greenville, Columbia, South Carolina & nearby Augusta, Georgia

What issues can eyelid surgery address?

Blepharoplasty can be used to effectively treat:

  • Sagging eyelids
  • Loose skin that hangs from or around the eyelids
  • Eyelids that appear puffy from excess fat
  • Dark hollows under the eyes

Am I a candidate for eyelid surgery?

Adult women and men who are in good overall health and present one or more of the above symptoms are often good candidates for blepharoplasty. Your personal consultation with board-certified South Carolina plastic surgeon Dr. Ted Vaughn will determine if eyelid surgery is right for you.

Can eyelid surgery eliminate droopy eyebrows?

Although blepharoplasty can rejuvenate puffy, droopy eyelids, it does not address eyebrows that hang low due to sagging skin of the forehead area. Because many patients experience both droopy eyelids and eyebrows, a brow lift is often performed in conjunction with eyelid surgery.

How long do the results of blepharoplasty last?

The results of eyelid surgery are often permanent, although the aging process affects each individual differently.

Will eyelid surgery leave visible scars?

Incisions for eyelid surgery are concealed in the natural creases or your eyelids, which makes them almost invisible.
