Who is the ideal candidate for blepharoplasty?
Generally speaking, blepharoplasty can be an ideal option for women and men who:
- have droopy, saggy upper or lower eyelids or who have fatty deposits or “bags” in the lids due to issues like age-related changes, sun exposure, tobacco use or even genetics
- are in good general health
- are nonsmokers
- have healthy eyes
- have realistic expectations of what blepharoplasty can achieve
The most satisfied patients are those who understand how the procedure can help them address their specific concerns, so it’s very important to discuss your goals during your consultation appointment to help ensure you experience the best results and to determine if a different type of procedure might be better for your goals and expectations.
