Can Blepharoplasty Get Rid of Dark CirclesDark circles underneath your eyes can signal to others that you have allergies, or aren’t getting enough sleep. But some residents don’t have allergies, are sleeping just fine and still have these dark circles. Unfortunately, these residents have one of a number of congenital conditions that naturally causes the tired, sick look of dark circles underneath the eyes, no matter how healthy the person actually feels. If you’re embarrassed by dark circles underneath your eyes that you can’t disguise with makeup, you may be looking for a surgical solution to your condition. Read on as Dr. Sikorski or Natural Image OC explains how lower eyelid blepharoplasty – or a lower eyelid eyelift, as it is sometimes called – can reduce this tired, sick-looking appearance for good for certain residents.

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure that improves the appearance of the eyelids, thus making your eyes look brighter and more alert. Blepharoplasty can be performed on the lower eyelid, the upper eyelid or both. Many patients turn to cosmetic surgeons like Dr. Sikorski for blepharoplasty to:

Eliminate dark circles underneath the eyes;

Tighten up loose and drooping upper eyelids that cause a person to look older than they are or interfere with their eyesight;

Remove extra fatty deposits that create puffiness in the eyelids;

Fix drooping lower eyelids that reveal the white below the iris; and

Get rid of extra skin and fine wrinkles in the lower eyelids.

How Does Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty Get Rid of Dark Circles Underneath My Eyes?

Dr. Sikorski takes all angles of your face into consideration when performing Blepharoplasty on our patients. She focuses on how all different types of light will hit your face and the different ways it will bring out your best features in a natural manner – this is why Dr. Sikorski creates results that increase our patients’ confidence and how they can once again see their own natural beauty.

Some patients lack fatty deposits underneath their eyelids, which causes depression resulting in dark circles. For these patients, Dr. Sikorski again places a composite fat graft to fill in the sunken area beneath the lower eyelids and erase the appearance of dark shadows.

How Can I Schedule My Blepharoplasty Surgery?

Only a skilled cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Sikorski of Natural Image OC can tell you if blepharoplasty should be performed to correct your case of dark circles underneath the eyes. In some patients, fillers might be called for.

To find out if blepharoplasty is indicated in your case of dark circles, the best thing you can do is schedule a consultation with Dr. Sikorski at her office. During this meeting, Dr. Sikorski will perform a full evaluation of your eyelids to determine the cause of your problem and if blepharoplasty or fillers can help you.
