Hooded Eyes Are Not Just A Cosmetic Issue

Hooded Eyes Are Not Just A Cosmetic Issue

What you should know about an advanced bladeless technique.

Some people are genetically predisposed to a “hooded” appearance to their upper eyelids, which typically gets worse with age, while others may develop fat-pads later in life due to aging. Bagging or droopy eyelids can occur on the lower eye area as well. In some cases, it’s not just an aesthetic concern, but rather a visual dis­turbance, as it can interfere with one’s peripheral vision.

Droopy eyelids can impair your vision and can also make you look older, tired, and less alert. Bladeless eyelid surgery can correct these problems and help you look more youthful. Traditional blepharoplasty requires cutting the eyelid skin and tissue with a scalpel and closing the skin with sutures. I perform blepharoplasties with an advanced bladeless technique, which reduces downtime, discomfort and healing significantly for my patients.

Blepharoplasty is one of the most common proce­dures done, with more than 200,000 cases per­formed nationwide every year. While in many patients it is medically necessary, as their periph­eral vision is compromised by the excess skin, others may pursue eyelid surgery for cosmetic reasons to refreshen their look.
