There are certain plastic surgeries which everyone in the general public seems to know about, like face lifts, liposuction, and breast augmentation. But interestingly, despite the fact that it has long been one of the most popular procedures in the country, eyelid surgery (also called blepharoplasty) is talked about very little. As a double board-certified plastic surgeon who is dedicated to educating patients about their plastic surgery options, I have compiled the facts below as a crash course on cosmetic eyelid surgery.
Everyone experiences aging in their own way, but “bags under the eyes” and hooded eyelids are common issues that arise due to a combination of genetics, lifestyle factors, and of course the aging of the skin and other tissue. While full prevention is not within our control, eyelid surgery fortunately offers a way to revitalize your appearance with long-lasting results. To discuss whether eyelid surgery may be right for you, schedule a consultation at my offices in Alpharetta or Atlanta. Or, follow me, Dr. Franklyn Elliott on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ for more plastic surgery tips and helpful cosmetic surgery information.
