Looking tired can have a negative effect on the way that you feel about yourself and on the way that other people treat you. When you look tired, people think that you don’t have energy, that you’re constantly worn out, and that the life responsibilities you have are just too much for you. If you are tired of constantly looking exhausted regardless of the amount of sleep that you get, it may be time to consider eyelid surgery in San Jose.

What is eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a procedure to help the appearance of drooping or sagging eyelids. Aging can have an effect on the appearance of the eyelids as the muscles controlling your them begin to weaken. This can result in extra skin or fat, which can make eyelids droop or look swollen. Eyelid surgery can refresh your appearance, making you look more energetic or younger.

Eyelid surgery can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelids via a variety of techniques and procedures. Your surgeon will determine what treatment option is right for you with your goals in mind.

How will I know if this procedure is right for me?

A consultation with our team can help determine if you could benefit from eyelid surgery. Somethings to consider are:

  • Are your eyelids droopy or hooded?
  • Do your lower eyelids sag?
  • Do you have constant eye puffiness?

This procedure is common for both women. Our team is led by Dr. Chase Lay, MD, a double board-certified and skilled plastic surgeon who specializes in facial and eyelid reconstruction. Lay has performed thousands of procedures, including both traditional and Asian eyelid surgery.

The procedure time for eyelid surgery varies, but it can be performed alongside some other procedures and treatments. For example, for a more thorough facial rejuvenation, Dr. Lay often combines this surgery with treatments like facelifts or brow lifts. During your consultation at our San Jose office, our team will review your options for achieving your aesthetic goals to help you achieve the look you desire.
