There is no doubt about the fact that having droopy eyelids makes you look older. When you have extra skin on your upper eyelids and on your lower eyelids, you look older than you are, you look tired, and you look like you are worn out. While we may not want to face the facts, it is true that people are going to make judgments about you based on your appearance. If you look like you are tired, you may be passed over for career opportunities. If you look worn out and you look older than you really are, you may miss out on some romantic relationship opportunities. If this sounds like your case, blepharoplasty could be perfect for you.
It is interesting how looking older also makes you feel older. Have you ever had one of those days when you get up, have lots of energy, and want to take on the world and then you look in the mirror? You see a person who looks old and tired. Now, instead of feeling full of energy and ready to take on anything, you don’t even feel like going out. You start doubting yourself. Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that is designed to improve the way your eyelids look. It can make you look younger and full of life.
This treatment is designed to do a variety of things. First, it can get rid of sagging skin that has changed the natural contour of your upper eyelids. This extra skin has now created folds that not only have changed your appearance, but may also impair your vision. In addition to helping you improve your appearance, your eyesight may also be improved because you will no longer have that extra skin hanging in the way. You may also notice that you have fewer headaches and a lot less tension in your forehead because you are no longer using those muscles to keep that extra skin lifted.
Blepharoplasty is also used to get rid of bags under the eyes. It can help individuals who have droopy lower eyelids that have now caused the white that is right below the iris to be revealed. This is not a natural look. When the excess skin is removed from the lower eyelid, you are no longer going to have those fine lines and wrinkles. Your appearance is going to look refreshed and youthful.
In addition to removing excess skin on the lower and upper eyelids, this eyelid lift is also designed to remove fatty deposits that cause your eyelids to look puffy. Fat can be removed and tissue can be repositioned in order to give your eyelids a smooth appearance. Muscles can also be tightened.
