If your eyes are the window into your soul, then your eyelids are the curtains. Your eyelids dramatically impact your appearance and overall youthfulness, perhaps more than you even realize. If you are frustrated by the excess skin and fat on your upper eyelid and wish it could be removed, then all you need is an eyelid surgery. Also known as an eyelid lift or blepharoplasty, cosmetic eyelid surgery is a minor procedure that can have a positive impact on the appearance of your face.
The growing absence of collagen and elastin in the skin as you age causes skin all around your body to stretch and loosen. The eyelids even stretch as the muscles supporting them become weaker with time. This forces pockets of fat to create saggy, droopy upper lids and bags under the eyes. An eyelid lift removes that excess skin to reveal the natural fold of your upper eyelid, reduce bags under the eyes, and help you look much younger.
Droopy eyelids aren’t only a cosmetic issue. It’s very possible that your heavy upper eyelids are interfering with your vision as well. During blepharoplasty surgery, your surgeon will cut along the fold of the upper eyelid to remove excess skin, muscle, and fat. Doing so will alleviate vision obstructions and help you see much better than before. You may not even realize just how much your vision has been limited until eyelid surgery opens your eyes… literally!
More than anything else, an eyelid lift will give your eyes a rested and more youthful appearance by removing excess skin and bags under the eyes. Many patients capitalize on the eyelid lift by having it performed in conjunction with other procedures like a face lift or brow lift. Since incisions are hidden and the recovery process is relatively short and simple, you can enjoy all the benefits of an eyelid lift without dramatically interrupting your daily routine!
