My eyes are constantly puffy and extremely swollen due to extreme allergies. I’d like to get a blepharoplasty procedure to trim away the extra skin from above and below my eyelids. I was curious to know whether this would help prevent my eyes from getting so swollen during an attack.
Many people feel that their eyes look the way they do because of allergies and certainly allergies can affect the way our eyes look, however usually there is an underlying anatomic contribution to eyelid appearance. Often a blepharoplasty can help the appearance of the eyes with allergies. Your allergies may still cause your eyes to wax and wain in how good they look, but the baseline look will be much better.
