How Eyelid Surgery Can Improve Your Appearance

Eyes are the windows to the soul. How your eyes look can have a great impact on how others perceive you. As you age, you may notice sagging skin or excess fat on your upper and lower eyelids. In some cases, droopy eyelids can enter your field of vision and cause sight impairment. Cosmetic blepharoplasty, more commonly referred to as eyelid surgery, can tighten your eyelids and create a more youthful look and can help correct vision problems. Eyelid surgery can improve your appearance in a number of ways.

Eyelid Surgery to Enhance Your Facial Features

Your face is often your first impression on others. Blepharoplasty can make your entire face look more youthful and give you a visual rejuvenation and rested appearance. This type of cosmetic surgery can help you look younger and more alert by repairing and subtly correcting the delicate skin and muscles around the eye area.

Look More Alert and Youthful

Your eyes are the most expressive parts of your face, reflecting your mood and personality. When your eyes age, the rest of your face does as well. Blepharoplasty gives your eyes a more alert and youthful appearance by tightening and removing excess skin and fat from around the upper and lower eyelids. This corrects the drooping and puffiness that can make you look older.

More Pronounced Eyelid Crease

Another common reason for getting eyelid surgery is if you have a monolid. These are upper lids that do not show a visible crease. If you prefer to have a more pronounced crease for aesthetic reasons, your plastic surgeon can create one for you. Although it is not able to erase evidence of your racial or ethnic heritage, blepharoplasty can alter the overall shape and appearance of your eyelids.

Eyelid Surgery Can Remove Wrinkles

The main goal of eyelid surgery is not to remove wrinkles, but many patients do see a reduction in the number of lines on the sides of their eyes (crow’s feet). This is because as the surgeon tightens your eyelid’s skin, it also tightens the surrounding area of your face. The potential reduction of wrinkles is just another way that eyelid surgery helps you look younger.

Combine Eyelid Surgery With Other Procedures

Many people choose to combine plastic surgery procedures. This helps reduce the overall recovery time compared to getting different procedures at different times and can also help you achieve the look you desire more quickly and easily. You can combine eyelid surgery with a facelift, skin smoothing, wrinkle removal, brow lift, or any other surgical or non-surgical cosmetic procedures. Your plastic surgeon can help you determine how blepharoplasty and other plastic surgery procedures can help you achieve your goals for your appearance.
