More and more people are seeking out cosmetic surgery to correct minor (or major) flaws they find with their bodies. In the past, it seems as though cosmetic surgery was reserved for the rich and famous, but in recent years, people have realized that some cosmetic surgeries (often referred to as plastic surgeries) are quite affordable, and the results make the costs involved well worth it. Not only does cosmetic surgery change the way people look, it often changes the way people feel about themselves. Self-esteem and self-image feelings often skyrocket after cosmetic surgery simply because women and men feel more attractive, look younger and are generally happier with what they see when they look in a mirror.

Dr. Robert G. Fante at the Fante Eye & Face Centre, serving Denver and surrounding areas of Colorado, has been performing cosmetic surgery on people for many years now and is highly respected in the medical community for his skill and artistry in the extremely specialized field of cosmetic surgery. One of the most popular procedures that Dr. Fante performs is eyelid surgery, medically known as “blepharoplasty.” Eyelid surgery can be performed on the lower eyelids, the upper eyelids, or on both the upper and lower eyelids.

Some people elect to have lower eyelid surgery for aesthetic reasons only, while others may need other types of surgery to help with medical problems. Whether you’re choosing to have lower eyelid surgery performed for looks or for medical reasons, Dr. Robert Fante is the surgeon to do it. However, in order to have lower eyelid surgery performed, you must be a good candidate for the procedure. What makes a person a good candidate for eyelid surgery? Let’s take at some factors that will affect whether or not you will be considered for lower eyelid surgery at the Fante Eye & Face Centre.

 

Who Makes a Good Candidate for Lower Eyelid Surgery?

Men and women with droopy eyelids, bags under the eyes and excessive skin or wrinkles around the eyes are typically good candidates for eyelid surgery. If you have loose skin or a puffy appearance on the lower lids, you may be a good candidate for blepharoplasty. If you have creases or folds in the lower eyelids, this surgery may be a great solution for that problem; however, lower eyelid surgery alone will only partially correct dark circles under your eyes, fine lines around your eyes or crow’s feet.

 

Lower Eyelid Surgery Candidacy

After an initial consultation, a complete medical history and thorough physical exam by Dr. Fante, lower eyelid surgery and non-surgical options will be discussed. Dr. Fante will let you know if blepharoplasty is right for you; if so, the surgery will be explained, information will be provided to you and possible dates for the surgery and recovery time will be discussed.

If you have realistic expectations of the surgery, are willing and able to follow post-operative directions and have the time needed to recover fully from the surgery, you may be a great candidate for lower eyelid surgery.
