Eyelid lift surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is an elective medical procedure designed to improve the appearance of your eyelids and the area around your eyes. An eyelid lift surgery can also be done if your eyelids are not functioning properly. Some of the most common problems fixed with an eyelid lift surgery are excess fat deposits around the eyes creating puffiness, bags under the eyes, drooping eyelids and wrinkles on the lower eyelid. We can also fix any sagging skin on the upper eyelid that is impairing your vision. While we all want to have great looking eyes, not everyone is a candidate to undergo eyelid lift surgery.
Your overall health is the prime factor in determining if you are a good candidate for an eyelid lift surgery. You will not be allowed to undergo an eyelid lift surgery if you are in poor health. If you are unhealthy, then you will have a hard time properly recovering following the eyelid lift. Fixing a cosmetic problem is not serious enough to put you at serious risk if you are not healthy enough to undergo surgery.
Smokers are also not allowed to undergo eyelid lift surgery. For the eyelid lift procedure to be performed as safe as possible, you will have to quit smoking several weeks before your surgery date. There are too many complications that can occur when a smoker gets this surgery, so we feel it is best to not perform it on smokers. If you are willing to quit smoking before your surgery, then you should have no problem getting your eyelid lift surgery.
The conditions of your eyes will also be factored in when determining if you are a good candidate for eyelid lift surgery. If you are suffering from any serious eye conditions, then you will not be allowed to get the surgery. Performing a cosmetic surgery on someone with serious eye problems will only cause more problems in the near future.
