Eyelid Surgery in Santa Barbara: Cosmetic Surgery Highlight
Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) is Dr. Perkins‘ and Cosmetic Surgery Center’s surgical highlight for this month. The eyes are often referred to as the “window to our soul” and can give people an impression of who you are without a word being spoken. As we age, sagging skin or fat bulges can make a person appear unhappy or tired, which is not the first impression a person would want to convey.
Blepharoplasty (eyelid) surgery can correct sagging skin and fat bulges around the eyes. Removing the excess skin and fat gives a person a more rested, and pleasant, appearance. No need to worry about scars! Incisions are hidden in the natural curves of the eyes, under the eyelashes or even internally, in some instances.
Both men and women can benefit from eyelid surgery and the benefits are not just cosmetic. According to a report published in the December 2011 issue of Opthalmology, blepharoplasty “provides significant improvement in vision, peripheral vision, and quality of life activities”. Droopy eyelids can cause a “superior visual field loss of at least 12 degrees or 24%”.
Open up your eyes to the world, again, and let everyone see them sparkle through eyelid lift surgery!
