As the saying goes, the eyes are the windows to the soul. Since eyes play a vital role in a person’s facial expression, you’d want to look honest, sincere, and attentive, especially when interacting with others. If your eyes make you appear angry, sad, or more tired than you actually are, you might want to look into having an eyelid surgery.
Eyelid surgery, also called eye lift or blepharoplasty, is a permanent solution to wrinkles, drooping brows, bulging fat, excess skin, and loss of bone volume in the eye area. The main culprits can be aging or genetics, and certain conditions may already be far too advanced for filler injections like Botox to address. Unlike Botox, which only last for a few months, blepharoplasty can last for years.
Not yet sold on the idea of an eyelid surgery? Here are ways this procedure can help you regain a youthful look and improve your vision as well.
Lift Droopy Eyelids
Loose, stretched out, and wrinkled skin in the upper lids can make the eyelids feel heavy. Droopy lids also tire your forehead whenever you lift your eyebrows. An eyelid surgery can remove the “heaviness” by trimming off excess skin and tightening the remaining skin.
Improve Peripheral Vision
As people age, the muscles that support the upper eyelid weaken and the area loses elasticity. The eyelid can no longer lift the excess skin and fat as well as the droopy brow. There are times when loose skin in the upper eyelids hangs down the lash line and block the vision. If you have to turn your head in order to see clearly, this is the time to get a blepharoplasty to open up your eyes and make your vision better.
Restore Eyelid Crease
Excess skin in the upper eyelid can hide the crease that you might want to highlight with makeup. Applying mascara or eyeliner is a struggle and you’ll have to lift your eyelids with your fingers. By means of an eye lift, extra skin will be surgically removed and the crease of your eyelid will be restored and redefined.
Eliminate Bulging Fat
As restraining ligaments weaken and the skin becomes paper-thin with age, the fat in the eyelid also bulges. Eyelid surgery can trim off excess surplus skin, rearrange the fat, sculpt the eye area, and tighten up those weak ligaments.
Remove Puffiness and Eye Bags
Puffy eyes and dark circles can make you look sad and tired all the time. A blepharoplasty can permanently fix these issues and smooth out creases to give you a brighter, youthful appearance.
Vanish Grooves and Tear Troughs
Aging can make the tough ligaments between the skin and the bone more visible. As a result, grooves become more pronounced, highlighting the appearance of the surrounding bulges. An eye lift can precisely release the ligaments, redistribute the fat, and bring back volume to the eye and mid-cheek.
Eradicate Wrinkles For Good
Botox can temporarily address wrinkles but not all of them. After a few months you will need a touch up to flatten out lines and wrinkles around your eyes. With eyelid surgery, wrinkles are permanently removed and the result is immediately visible and long-lasting.
An eyelid surgery can improve the appearance your eyes and your vision if performed by a surgeon who has the skills and experience to carry out the procedure. As with any other surgery, entrusting yourself to a board-certified doctor ensures your safety and the success of your eyelid surgery.
