An Eyelid Surgery Expert in South Jersey

The eyes tend to be the first thing we notice when we look at someone’s face. Because of this, the appearance of the eyelids and eyebrows are a huge part of the overall facial aesthetic. Unfortunately, numerous people are unhappy with the way their eyelids and brows look, many of them suffering from issues like ptosis (droopy eyelids), bags under the eyes, and sagging eyebrows. If you’d like to improve the appearance of your brows or eyelids, a brow lift, blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery in South jersey may be the answer.

What Is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty in South Jersey is a cosmetic surgery to correct several aesthetic issues with the eyelids. Blepharoplasty is most commonly used to treat lower eyelid bagginess, lower eyelid droopiness, or upper eyelid hooding. Ptosis repair is a separate type of blepharoplasty meant for repairing droopy upper eyelids. In addition to its cosmetic purposes, eyelid surgery can often have a positive effect on the patient’s vision.

What Is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift in South Jersey is a cosmetic procedure to raise the eyebrows and rejuvenate the skin on the forehead and between the brows. The surgery can be used to correct sagging eyebrows or improve brow symmetry. A brow lift can also remove unsightly frown lines and forehead wrinkles, giving the face a more youthful appearance.

How Does the Procedure Work?

Eyelid surgery and brow lifts are quite a bit different in how they’re able to improve facial appearance.

  • Eyelid Surgery: Eyelid surgery typically involves removing excess skin or tissue from the upper or lower eyelids or, in the case of ptosis repair, tightening the levator muscles in the upper eyelids. The specifics of blepharoplasty depend on what issue is being addressed. For example, if you have bulging lower eyelids, the procedure will involve making small incisions beneath the eyes and carefully removing or repositioning the excess tissue.

  • Brow Lift: Like eyelid surgery, a brow lift can be performed in several different ways depending on what needs to be corrected. Typically, the procedure involves making one or more incisions above the eyebrows and carefully repositioning and/or removing skin and tissue. As a result, one or both of the brows can be raised, and the forehead skin can be smoothed significantly.

Benefits of Blepharoplasty, Eyelid Surgery & Brow Lifts

All of the following are common benefits of undergoing cosmetic surgery for your eyelids or brows:

  • More youthful facial appearance
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Improved vision
  • Repairing droopy eyelids
  • Reduced bags or dark circles under the eyes
  • Removing frown lines and forehead wrinkles
  • Removing wrinkles, creases, and folds of the eyelids
  • Repairing sagging or uneven eyebrows
