Of lately we have had a series of younger patients coming into our San Diego office for consultation regarding an eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty. Many of them inquire whether or not they are seeking treatment too early given the fact they are in their early 30s-40s. The reality is there are many patients who have eyelid lift surgery at this age! You don’t have to wait until you are in your 50s-60s before considering a blepharoplasty procedure. There are a number of patients out there who congenitally have excess upper and lower eyelid skin that creates a prematurely aged or tired look. Their eyelid skin tends to be more crepe than the average person. Many female patients begin to notice difficulty applying make-up to the upper eyelid because there is so much skin redundancy. These type of unwanted changes can certainly be seen as early as 30-40 years of age. So don’t feel like you are alone out there when considering an upper eyelid lift at this age. The good news is that a blepharoplasty procedure can be one of the most satisfying procedures to have done with some of the biggest bang for your buck.
