Often referred to as “The Window to the Soul”, your eyes are often the first feature that people notice about your face. As we age, the skin of both the upper and lower eyelids starts to sag and many people develop lower eyelid bags. The puffiness under the eyes combined with droopiness of the upper eyelids can make your once alert and beautiful eyes appear tired and aged. Most people find that eyelid surgery can make a profound difference in the way they look and feel about themselves, providing a distinct boost in self-confidence. Why would YOU consider having eyelid surgery? Let’s look at some of the benefits of this procedure.
Eyes Appear Youthful and Well-Rested
The goal of blepharoplasty is simple – refresh the appearance of the eyes by removing excess skin and fat from the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both. The result is a more youthful and less-tired appearing version of yourself. People who have undergone the procedure often report a boost in their self-confidence as they both look and feel younger.
Potentially Improves Vision
Removing excess sagging skin from the eyelids can literally take weight off of your eyes, making them lighter and potentially improving your field of view. Following blepharoplasty, many patients report that their eyelids feel significantly lighter and that their vision is no longer obstructed by hanging skin.
Removes Bags From Lower Eyelids
Significant contributors to an aged appearance are large puffy bags and dark shadows beneath our eyes. Over time, our lower eyelids can develop large bags that create dark shadows and result in a constant look of exhaustion.
If the puffy bags under your eyes have started to give you a tired appearance, cosmetic eyelid surgery may be just the thing for you. Removing the bags can improve and sometimes eliminate the dark shadows that they create, providing you with a refreshed and well-rested appearance.
Scars Are Minimal and Well Hidden
Scars can always be a concerning part of any surgery and the last thing any patient wants is to have visible scars. Fortunately, the scars from a blepharoplasty are hidden in the naturally occurring folds around your eyes, blending in seamlessly. As the scars mature, they eventually become fine lines that are hidden and virtually undetectable.
