Blepharoplasty / Eyelid Surgery in Vancouver
As we age, our skin becomes less elastic and loosens, which can cause folds and bagginess in the skin around the upper and lower eyelids. In addition, these baggy areas can appear swollen and puffy leaving individuals looking tired or prematurely aged. Some people find that the folds and bagginess hang over their eyelashes and can impair their vision.
Genetics do play a role in this too, and some individuals notice a change in the appearance of their eyelids during early adulthood, and often one or both of their parents experienced something similar. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) can be performed to correct this problem at any age.
Blepharoplasty procedure can be performed just to the upper, or lower or both eyelids, depending on your individual needs and preferences. Dr. Tregaskiss can help you make this decision with the knowledge from his clinical experience.
The procedure involves removing excess skin, removing or tightening some of the surrounding muscle, and either removing or repositioning some of the fat in the area to create a beautifully lifted and youthful eyelid that will make you appear refreshed and bright-eyed.
Dr. Tregaskiss will spend time with you to help understand your goals, answer all your questions and make recommendations.
