Sick of staring at drooping eyelids every time you look in the bathroom mirror?
Whether you get your eight hours every night or you need coffee running through your veins, it’s no secret that drooping eyelids can make you look overly fatigued and older than your actual years. Plus, for some people, drooping eyelids can be so bad that they actually impede vision(!).
If you’re currently battling with drooping eyelids, help is on the way. Read on to learn more about the best procedure for drooping eyelids, including how to tell if you’d make a good candidate.
Blepharoplasty: The Best Procedure for Drooping Eyelids
Blepharoplasty – also known as an eyelid lift – is a surgical procedure designed to not only correct drooping eyelids, but also minimize signs of aging, like crow’s feet, undereye bags, and more. An eyelid lift can help erase years of aging around your eyes, bringing back the youthful and alert appearance that often disappears to drooping eyelids.
Blepharoplasty works to correct drooping eyelids by readjusting the muscles that create drooping skin. Small incisions are made along the eyelid, where your plastic surgeon can go in and reposition the muscles to promote a more youthful appearance. Skin usually self-corrects by following the muscles, but if the patient has poor skin laxity, your plastic surgeon may remove excess skin to help show off your newfound results.

Are You a Good Candidate for a Blepharoplasty?
You’re a good candidate for a blepharoplasty procedure if you have drooping eyelids, deep wrinkles and folds around the eyes, and undereye bags. While health insurance doesn’t normally cover the cost of blepharoplasty surgery, your policy may cover part or all of your costs if your vision is adversely affected by drooping eyelids.
It’s been 6 months since my eyelid surgery with Dr. Ahn and am very happy with the results. The results are much better than I expected. Dr. Ahn and Dr. Liu were fantastic throughout the entire process from surgery to follow-up and Faith was so helpful leading up to the surgery that I felt comfortable from the beginning. Highly recommend them.
