Do You Need a Blepharoplasty?

Do You Need a Blepharoplasty?

Many times as we age, we experience a tired look in our eyes — even when we are not tired! Some folks even notice that in photos, their eyes appear to be small and squinty, not wide-eyed and refreshed-looking as they used to be.

Droopy eyelids are a concern to the thousands of men and women across the country who undergo blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), also known as an eye lift or eyelid lift. Dr. Andrew Lofman specializes in eye lifts in metro Detroit.

Read on to learn more about this safe and increasingly common procedure.

Telltale signs

Droopy upper eyelids happen as a result of excess sagging skin on the eyelid. This can age you, as well as make you look puffy, tired or even sad or worn. By your late thirties and early forties, the eyelid tissues start to lose elasticity, even when the rest of your face still appears youthful.

Here are some signs that you may be a candidate for an eye lift:

-You look tired even though you are well-rested
-Your eyelid has a bulge or bag to it
-Your eyes appear to sag
-Your eyes look squinty even when you’re opening them wide
-Your eyelids have wrinkles

If you can relate to any of the above, fortunately, there is a solution.

The procedure

Dr. Andrew Lofman is an expert in performing eye lifts in Michigan. His skilled techniques and finesse have garnered him a large client base who come to him from across the state and beyond to undergo eye lifts.

Many surgeons today perform eye lifts in a “cookie cutter” approach. However, Dr. Andrew’s philosophy is much different. Each procedure performed is unique to the patient’s individual need and may include the removal of excess skin on the upper eyelid, removal of excess eyelid fat and even the removal of excess lower eyelid skin, or a combination of all three.

Further, he can even rejuvenate your eyelids by restoring volume to the tear trough and softening the lid-cheek area with facial fillers. Laser resurfacing can also be used to improve the color and texture of the eyelids.

Dr. Andrew takes care in listening to his patients’ concerns before recommending solutions that would be best for them.
