Blepharoplasty is a great option for getting rid of droopy eyelids to improve your range of eyesight and make you look younger.
It’s a relatively simple plastic surgery procedure that tightens the skin around the eyelids and the area around the eyes. This procedure has medical and aesthetic benefits so there are a variety of reasons people have it done.
Excessive skin or skin that has lost its elasticity can often make you look tired even when you aren’t and make your eyelids feel heavy. It can also impact your eyesight because it may be difficult to fully open your eyes or the skin can hang over your eyelashes into your view.
Tightening the skin can improve your appearance and your vision. Whatever your goal is, be sure to discuss it with the doctor performing the procedure. You want to make sure that it will achieve your goal and that you have realistic expectations.
During the procedure, your surgeon will carefully remove excess skin and fat in the area, as well as restructure the muscles if necessary to make the results look as natural as possible. You’ll receive medication to numb the eyes and relax the body during the procedure, making it more comfortable.
Why do people get blepharoplasty?
There are a few different reasons why people get blepharoplasty. The first is to make their eyes look brighter and more youthful. As we age, the skin around our eyes can start to droop, making us look more tired. This procedure will correct it, making your face look more youthful, while still maintaining a natural look.
Another reason why people get blepharoplasty is to correct issues with the eyelids. Drooping eyelids can negatively affect your vision, so many people get surgery to correct this problem and see better. Vision issues can also happen when the skin around the upper eye starts to sag, blocking peripheral vision.
Is it right for me?
If you are concerned about sagging eyelids or drooping skin around the eyes, consider talking to a cosmetic surgeon about blepharoplasty. Your doctor will examine your eye area and test your vision to determine if you are a good candidate for the surgery. From there, they will talk to you more in-depth about what the surgery will entail and what to expect.
