“Blepharoplasty is a relatively small surgical procedure that provides a profound impact on a patient’s image.”
– Dr. Pratt
Because aging weakens muscles around the eyes and fat accumulation can cause bagging and unnatural bulges, the results are that of a tired, undesirable look. To correct these problems, a blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can be performed by removing a narrow section of skin or small pockets of excess fat, leaving a nearly invisible external scar. The results are evident immediately, providing a rested and refreshed appearance. The upper eyelids will no longer droop, while the skin under the eyelids is smooth and firm.
The Blepharoplasty Procedure
Dr. Pratt begins the eyelid surgery by making an incision on the inner lid and carrying it to the outer edge of the eye. Because the incision is made in the natural line of your eye, scarring is almost nonexistent. At this point, Dr. Pratt removes any excess skin, fat or muscle to achieve optimum eyesight. If you desire, Dr. Pratt can also reshape your eyes while performing the blepharoplasty.
