Upper Blepharoplasty With Local Anesthesia

Blepharoplasty, or eye lift, is an effective way to reduce bagginess from lower eyelids, while removing drooping skin from upper eyelids. It tightens the skin surrounding the eyes and eliminates excess fat, changing a once-tired expression into a supple, youthful look.

Trusted Virginia Beach plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Bounds is skilled in performing blepharoplasty with local anesthesia, a convenient in-office procedure that can reverse or reduce the signs of aging near the eyes.

Permanent Lift

Blepharoplasty is a permanent solution for weary eyes and worn-out expressions. Once fat is removed during blepharoplasty, it will never come back. The procedure does not freeze time, however; you will experience a normal loosening of skin over the next 10 or 20 years. Eye lift resets the clock, so your natural aging process begins again with much younger-looking skin.

Because blepharoplasty is meant to last years, it is important that a surgeon refrain from removing too much skin. Dr. Bounds favors a conservative approach, removing an amount that is sufficient to give you a relaxed, optimistic look.

Myriad Options

Although the results of blepharoplasty can be remarkable, patients often choose other effective options. Among them is brow lift. When your primary concern is loose skin and an accumulation of fat in the upper and lower eyelids, blepharoplasty is often the best choice. If you are satisfied with the shape and placement of your eyebrow, blepharoplasty may be all you need. Brow lift may be a better choice when your brow is within the eye socket, has lost its natural shape, or you have a pocket of fat or loose skin that involves more than just the eyelid.

Blood vessels and pigment can be directly targeted with laser treatment, as well. Laser is also very effective in treating so-called “crepey” skin under the eyes. In some cases, Botox or Dysport can be a preferred way to relax muscles that are causing wrinkles and volume displacement near the eyes.
