Blepharoplasty, Charlotte, NC

When it comes to plastic surgery, big transformations can sometimes be achieved with small changes. One of the best examples of this is blepharoplasty. Eyelid surgery is typically subtle in nature yet provides the face with a new glow that your friends are sure to notice. Dr. Garrett Harper and Dr. Robert Graper discuss why their blepharoplasty patients love the reactions they receive.

The Physical Changes from Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty rejuvenates the face by adjusting the eyelids. With age, excess fat and skin accumulates just above the eye. That added weight diminishes the arc of the eyebrows and causes the upper eyelid to droop. Upper eyelid surgery removes this excess fat and skin to restore a more youthful appearance.

Lower eyelid surgery focuses on the bags that form beneath the eyes. The procedure repositions or removes the skin and fat to get a smoother, unwrinkled skin tone. Evening out the hollows minimizes the circles associated with tiredness.

What Other People See

Your eyes are a vital part of non-verbal communication. Whether or not you like it — and whether it is true — the eyes can indicate to other people that you are older and tired.   

Because the amount of removed and repositioned skin and fat is minimal, it is likely that your friends and colleagues will perceive that something is different in your demeanor rather than your physical self. (This is especially true if they have not seen you while you are recovering in the first week or two following your surgery.) No longer seeing the eye bags and drooping eyelids, they may first assume that you are better rested or healthier. You look more vibrant and ready for socializing and work activities.

Even if you do not intend to conceal the fact that you have had plastic surgery, it is reassuring to know that eyelid surgery can have its intended results: rejuvenating the face and better reflecting the vibrancy you feel on the inside.
