As we age, our eyelids stretch and the muscles around our eyes can get weaker. This causes extra skin and fat around your eyelids and can give result in sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids, and bags under your eyes. At times, vision can be affected, but many times these changes affect your self-esteem and how you feel about your appearance. Patients often say they feel like they “look tired” all the time.
The good news is blepharoplasty can correct these issues. Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that removes the extra skin around your eyes caused by aging. Some patients combine a brow lift with a blepharoplasty for a completely refreshed look.
Plastic surgeon Bridgett Moore, MD will discuss your concerns with you and explain the details of a blepharoplasty including down time and recovery. Surgery takes place in our onsite outpatient surgery center at Azalea Center in Valdosta, Georgia, but patients may also use our satellite office in Tifton for post-op visits. Our practice serves patients in Tifton, Valdosta, Douglas, Moultrie, Albany, Adel as well as across south Georgia and north Florida.
