Your eyes are some of the most expressive facial characteristics that you have; for those who have sagging, baggy eyelids, their personality might be completely overshadowed by constantly tired looking eyes. A blepharoplasty, however, is the perfect solution for rejuvenating and renewing your eyes; but it also has a host of different benefits, ranging from the cosmetic to the medical.
The Science of the Eyelid Lift
The eyelid has a layer of skin covering connective tissue, and muscle, with a section of fat beneath everything. As we get older, our skin, the connective tissue and the muscle starts to sag, which then shifts the fat in a way that makes the eyelid droop considerably. Aging and genetics can also lead to larger deposits of fat in the eyelid, leading to puffiness under the eyes. An upper or lower blepharoplasty can remove excess skin, muscle, and fat that contributes to droopy eyelids. You can have either an upper or lower eyelid lift or both. With a blepharoplasty, the incisions will be hidden in the natural creases of the eye or in the lash line.
The Top 4 Benefits of Blepharoplasty
- No More Droopy Old Eyes
With an eye lift, you can reduce the droopy, sagging eyelids that made you look older for a more refreshed, more youthful look.
- Get Rid of Those Puffy Lids
Nothing makes you look as tired and older as puffy lower lids. Thankfully, a lower blepharoplasty can remove the extra fat in the lower lids that lead to puffy lower eyelids. You’ll look less tired and bloated, and more awake and youthful.
- Better Vision
For an unlucky few, drooping eyelids can actually droop so far that it can obscure your field of vision. An upper blepharoplasty can actually remove excess skin, muscle, and fat, tightening the eyelid and allowing for clearer vision. With no more droopy eyelids obscuring your vision, your eyebrows and forehead can move a lot easier without all the extra weight.
- Finish Those Fine Lines
The eyelid lift tightens the eyelid, which can actually help reduce the fine lines that appears on the outer corners of the eyes. Often called crow’s feet or expression lines, these are some of the most common and prominent signs of aging, but now it can be reduced by the blepharoplasty.
