Could Blepharoplasty Be All You Need to Feel Younger?
- Posted on: Aug 15 2020
Many people want to look more like their younger selves than the older, tired-looking version they see in the mirror. The face is typically the most worrisome area when it comes to the signs of aging. Not only is the skin on the face vulnerable to premature aging resultant from sun exposure, but the face cannot be disguised. The degradation of the delicate skin on the face, especially the eyelids, can significantly age the face and change one’s appearance. This is why blepharoplasty has become such a popular procedure.
Blepharoplasty is the eyelid surgery that is performed to combat sagging and bagging of the upper and lower eyelids. The procedure is not capable of eliminating all lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Patients may still have crow’s feet after their procedure. However, they no longer have to worry about looking sad, angry, or fatigued once the excess sagging skin has been tightened and trimmed.
If you’ve been hoping that the expensive creams and serums you’ve been using would make a significant difference in your appearance and haven’t seen the results you’d imagined, now is a great time to ask yourself if blepharoplasty may be right for you. Facial aging is, after all, a natural process that everyone goes through. That may be true, but it isn’t a process everyone wants to go through. Blepharoplasty is the solution.
Blepharoplasty may be right for you if you have bags under your eyes. This problem results from the breakdown of muscle and skin in the lower eyelid. Here, there are natural fat pads that are necessary to prevent a sunken appearance. However, if the tissue that holds fat pads in place weakens, persistent puffiness occurs.
Blepharoplasty may be right for you if you have heavy upper eyelids. Here, the laxity that occurs can cause the skin to fall down toward the eyelashes. The natural crease of the eye may slowly disappear. In severe cases, surgeons have to correct skin that has become so lax that it falls over the lash line and into the field of vision.
