Do you want younger-looking, more attractive eyes? Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is done to remove the excess skin near the eye and decrease droopiness. Blepharoplasty is not meant to eliminate facial wrinkles or affect any other part of the face, although it will greatly enhance your overall appearance. The results last a very long time, although they are not permanent.
Most people refer to blepharoplasty as an eyelid lift or eye lift, and it is considered the third most widely performed cosmetic beauty procedures done today. The procedure may include lower and upper lids or both. The end goal is to make the eyes appear more rested and alert.
What is Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery?
Cosmetic blepharoplasty is a procedure that is not actually necessary from a medical viewpoint but performed for the sole purpose of improving appearance.
For many people, their upper and/or lower eyelids may start to droop or sag as they naturally age. Likewise, the eyebrows can also droop or sag as people age. Muscles weaken, the skin on the eyelids starts to stretch, and fat pockets are more noticeable as they continue to bulge outwards. The condition is also known to be hereditary, which means it runs in families. Cosmetically speaking, such disorders can detract from the general appeal and attractiveness of the eyes as well as the face, and, therefore, cause an older, tired appearance. Blepharoplasty at Las Vegas Laser and Lipo can fix these issues.
Benefits of Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty offers many beauty advantages with the added benefit of experiencing better vision. Even though the benefits of the surgery will be unique to each person, you can generally expect the following benefits from eyelid surgery:
- A rejuvenated and refreshed eye appearance
- More alert looking eyes overall
- Unobscured vision due to drooping eyelid skin
The eyes are the first aspect of your face that people see, and, therefore, contribute to the overall appearance of your face. If your eyelids are sagging and droopy, you will look much older than you are.
How Blepharoplasty Slows Down the Aging Process
Blepharoplasty helps slow down the aging process by improving the cosmetic appearance of the eyes and addressing the following:
- Bags or puffiness below or above the eyes
- Drooping upper eyelid skin
- Sagging eyelid skin that tends to obscure the contours of the eyelid
- Fine lines and excess skin of the lower eyelid
- Excess fatty deposits on the eyelid
- Eyelids that droop down into your vision field
Who is a Good Candidate for Blepharoplasty?
A good candidate for eyelid surgery includes individuals who have sagging or excess skin around their eyes, such as hooded eyelids. Also, it is best to be in overall good health, psychologically sound, do not smoke, and have realistic expectations concerning the outcome.
