Is Eyelid Surgery Only for Old People?

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that improves the appearance of the eyelids. It involves removing excess skin, fat and muscle from the upper and/or lower eyelids to create a more youthful and refreshed look. Many people believe that eyelid surgery is only for older individuals, but this is not necessarily true. Dr. Benjamin C. Stong and his team at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, clear up this popular misconception.

Who Is a Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

The aging process affects everyone differently. Some individuals may experience sagging or drooping eyelids in their 20s or 30s, while others may not notice any changes until their 50s or 60s. Therefore, eyelid surgery is not just for old people – it is suitable for anyone who is unhappy with the appearance of their eyelids, regardless of their age.

Certain factors make someone a better candidate for eyelid surgery at a younger age. For example, individuals with a family history of sagging or drooping eyelids may notice these changes earlier in life and may benefit from eyelid surgery at a younger age. Additionally, some medical conditions, such as thyroid eye disease or facial palsy, can cause eyelid drooping and may require surgical intervention at a younger age.

Conversely, older individuals may be more likely to experience significant sagging or drooping of the eyelids due to the natural aging process. In these cases, eyelid surgery can be a highly effective way to restore a more youthful and refreshed appearance. However, it is important to note that older individuals may also have other factors to consider, such as general health and the risk of complications associated with surgery.

What Can I Expect from Eyelid Surgery?

Double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Benjamin Stong can often perform blepharoplasty in the office under local anesthesia for quick recovery times. He employs the latest techniques to remove loose skin that sags around the eyes and excess fat that causes a puffy appearance. These advanced techniques minimize visible scarring while making profound improvements to your appearance and even your vision.

Dr. Stong will evaluate your general health and eyelid condition in a confidential consultation at his Atlanta office to determine if you are a suitable candidate for blepharoplasty surgery. He may also recommend a non-surgical eye lift, mini blepharoplasty or other suitable procedure.
