Are you unhappy with the shape of your eyes as you grow older? If you live in or around Philadelphia and want to revitalize the skin around your eyes, blepharoplasty might be right for you.

Blepharoplasty is a facial plastic surgery procedure that restores your eyelids and removes bags, wrinkles and other imperfections. Philadelphia facial cosmetic surgeon Dr. John Lee can provide an upper eyelid procedure and/or a lower eyelid procedure, depending on what changes you’d like to make to your face.

However, it’s important to be in good health before and after your blepharoplasty procedure in order to attain the best results and make a quick recovery. Illnesses that could cause issues with blepharoplasty surgery include:

  • Conditions affecting the eye and/or vision, such as persistently dry eyes or glaucoma
  • An imbalance in the thyroid, which can affect metabolism and eye health
  • Heart conditions and circulatory issues, including high blood pressure
  • Diabetes

It’s important to tell Dr. Lee your full medical history, as well as what you hope to achieve with blepharoplasty. Through a consultation with you, he can develop a procedure that’s right for your face and your overall health.
