Feeling more confident with the help of your eye doctor in the Lake Forest area

Although much of our communication is verbally expressed, the eyes are also an integral part of interacting with others. When engaging in conversation, we also decipher messages by recognizing facial expressions, many of which are quite subtle. The appearance of our eyes is quite important to sending the right messages when we communicate. For many people, messages are skewed due to aesthetics, specifically, puffiness on the eyelids or under the eyes.

Excess skin or fatty deposits that collect on the upper or lower eyelids give a heavy look to the eyes, and can make a person look older than he or she is. Not only that, these conditions can even make one appear unfriendly or angry. Essentially, the person behind the eyes is misinterpreted by others, based solely on appearance. The issues that stem from this cosmetic condition often lead to poor self-esteem and impaired human interaction. Vision impairment is also a possibility, should excess skin droop to such an extent as to fold over the field of vision.

Bags on or under the eyes, called festoons, develop in older adults more frequently, although younger individuals can also experience excessive fat or skin around the eye. This may be due to allergies, sun exposure, weight, or lifestyle habits. People do not like to see bags under their eyes, often reaching for a cosmetic product to solve their dilemma. One may not think that his or her eye doctor in the Lake Forest area would have the ultimate solution for puffy, droopy eyes, but the Orange County Eye Institute does.

Our patients can allow their true personality to shine through their eyes by correcting bags with blepharoplasty. This surgical solution to the problem of festoon is quick and more effective than any topical remedy available. In fact, blepharoplasty is the third most commonly performed cosmetic surgery in the U.S. today.

Eyelid surgery is ideal for many people, tailored precisely to each patient's needs and overall facial contours. Blepharoplasty may address the lower lids, upper lids, or both, to reveal an appearance that is natural and beautiful.

In some cases, insurance coverage may be available for eyelid surgery. To discover how this personalized procedure can help you, contact the Orange County Eye Institute.
