Age doesn’t just cause wrinkles on your skin and aches in your joints; it can also cause your eyelids to droop and sag. Without youthful and healthy eyelids, your face looks much older and fatigued than you probably feel. Cosmetic eyelid surgery, also known as an eyelid lift or blepharoplasty, is a minor procedure that can have a major positive impact on the appearance of your face. It could be time for you to undergo a blepharoplasty if you are experiencing the following problems.
All skin loses its firmness as you age. By the time you turn 30 and continue into your 40s, your body produces less and less collagen and elastin each year. This might cause your eyelids to stretch and the muscles supporting them to become weaker with time. Are you noticing bags or loose skin around your eyes? This might impact the upper lids and create bags under the eyes. If so, an eyelid lift can remove that excess skin to help you look much younger.
Baggy and droopy upper eyelids aren’t just unattractive; they can interfere with your vision as well. During blepharoplasty surgery, your plastic surgeon will cut along the fold of the upper eyelid to remove excess skin, muscle, and fat. Doing so often in conjunction with brow elevation, will alleviate vision obstructions and help you see much better than before.
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 of the benefits of an eyelid lift without dramatically interrupting your daily routine!
