How Do I Know If I Need Eyelid Surgery?

Featured Image

Do you have drooping eyelids or under-eye bags? Are you starting to look tired even after a good night's sleep? You may be an ideal candidate for eyelid surgery. Blepharoplasty can help you appear more rested and refreshed, and it may even improve your vision.

There are several signs that you could benefit from an eyelid lift at VIP Cosmetic Surgery. If you have any of the following concerns, call now to discuss your options with board-certified ophthalmologist and oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Kenneth D. Farr. Our Hilton Head and Okatie, SC team understands the delicate nature of this procedure and can ensure optimal results.

Your vision is obstructed

As we age, the skin around the upper eyelids becomes loose and hangs down. Unfortunately, this excess tissue can obstruct our vision. Drooping eyelids are especially problematic when performing essential functions like driving or reading. Candidates for upper eyelid surgery tend to raise their eyebrows or tilt their heads back to see clearly. Dr. Farr can remove the extra tissue to widen your field of vision.

You appear tired or angry

People may comment that you seem tired or angry when you’re not, and this can be frustrating. Puffiness and dark circles under the eyes (known as "bags") can give off the appearance of fatigue. If you have bags, they may be caused by excess fatty deposits or loose skin. During lower eyelid surgery, Dr. Farr removes or redistributes this tissue to create an alert and refreshed look.

You want long-lasting results

Over-the-counter creams and cosmetics may "hide" the appearance of bags or fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. However, they only provide temporary outcomes. These products do nothing to control skin elasticity or drooping features that make you feel self-conscious.

Surgery is often necessary when drugstore treatments fail to work. Blepharoplasty addresses the root of the problem instead of covering it up. Results from upper and lower eyelid surgery could last for years, especially if you take good care of your skin and protect yourself from the sun.

You are in good health

It’s important to be in good physical and mental health before undergoing any cosmetic surgery. During a consultation, Dr. Farr will evaluate your medical background to ensure your candidacy for eyelid surgery in Hilton Head or Okatie, SC. We may ask about any conditions or medications that could affect your outcomes. The goal is to provide patients with the safest and most effective care possible.

You want dramatic results

An eyelid lift creates wonderful results countless people love. If you want more dramatic and comprehensive outcomes, VIP Cosmetic Surgery can recommend combining blepharoplasty with other nonsurgical treatments. Our custom-tailored approach has helped many people achieve their desired look. Ask Dr. Farr about dermal fillers, laser treatments, and chemical peels during an assessment.
