The Different Types of Blepharoplasty Explained

Better known as eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty will aesthetically enhance your eyes by addressing sagging eyelid skin and under eye puffiness. This facial plastic surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in Atlanta and beyond.

A successful outcome hinges on the surgeon you choose. Dr. C. Carson Huynh is a dual-certified plastic surgeon in maxillofacial and facial plastic surgery. He leads a dedicated team of medical professionals who provide a safe and stress-free environment at our state-of-the-art surgery center in the heart of Atlanta.

Eyelid surgery can provide cosmetic and functional benefits. 

Cosmetic Blepharoplasty

Excess tissue and fat around your upper or lower eyelids may cause an aged or worn-out appearance. Blepharoplasty surgery removes excess fat and skin around the eyes to restore your youthful vibrancy. Dr. Huynh carefully makes incisions within existing creases to ensure they heal virtually invisibly. Non-surgical fillers can provide temporary improvements without anesthesia, sutures, or downtime. 

For many of our Atlanta blepharoplasty patients, eyelid surgery has proven to be an optimal facial enhancement by taking years off their appearance.

Functional Blepharoplasty

Sometimes, your upper eyelid skin can sag enough to limit your peripheral vision and line of sight. In this case, eyelid surgery might be medically necessary and covered by your insurance company. You should schedule an appointment with an optometrist if you have excess skin that inhibits your vision. They will perform a visual field test and check for conditions like dry eye, which could alter your surgical plan or be a concern post-surgery.

Non-Surgical Eyelid Lift

For a non-surgical approach, Dr. Huynh can employ dermal filler injections combined with a chemical peel to enhance facial beauty. For example, if you have sagging upper lids or droopy, puffy under eye circles, a non-surgical eyelid lift can rejuvenate your appearance.

Minimally invasive techniques can make you look younger by replacing lost facial volume in areas where you have hollows or voids. Non-invasive cosmetic treatments like dermal fillers and PDO threads can effectively improve eyelid contours. Though the outcomes are not permanent, results are immediate, and there’s minimal discomfort involved.
