An eyelift can take away years of stress from your face. When you look at yourself in the mirror and/or in photos, do you sometimes feel your eyes make you appear exhausted, unrested, or even older than you actually are? As we age, the eyes are typically the first facial features to show symptoms of aging, and this usually manifests in the form of skin drooping and laxity, fat displacement and/or protrusion, and minor creases/lines in the upper eyelids. For many individuals, these issues are often accompanied by dark circles, puffy bags, and crepey skin in the lower eyelids.
From excitement to happiness and from exhaustion to anger, the eyes and forehead work together to express a wide range of emotions. Normally, these emotions can be controlled easily, displaying exactly how we truly feel. Over time, however, the natural process of aging and its impact on our appearance can cause many to look one way when they actually feel another way. For example, aging concerns such as under-eye bags, drooping eyelids, and a descending brow show a tired and/or angry appearance – even when an individual is perfectly happy and well-rested.
Luckily, there is a common procedure referred to as eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, which can be used to help rejuvenate the eyes for a refreshed look and revitalized aesthetic. Depending on each patient’s unique needs, eyelid surgery can be performed both on the upper lids (upper blepharoplasty), lower lids (lower blepharoplasty), or both eyelids in combination.
In this article, we have highlighted the key benefits of this treatment.
The upper blepharoplasty
Eyelift upper can:
- Diminish redundant skin that causes eyelid drooping
- Improve field of vision (for those whose upper lids are sagging low enough to impair a full range of vision)
- Remove excess fat and/or puffiness in the upper eyelids
The lower blepharoplasty
- Remove fat buildups and loose, excess skin in the lower lids
- Improve under-eye bags and circles
- Smooth out lower eyelid lines and wrinkles
