As the skin around your eyes loses its elasticity with age, it can cause a sagging or drooping appearance. This can make you look tired all the time, or it can cause you to appear older than you are. The good news is that loose skin and fat deposits around your eyes can be addressed with eyelid surgery. Blepharoplasty is a popular option to refresh your facial appearance to look more alert and youthful.

Blepharoplasty Explained

Blepharoplasty targets excess skin and tissue around the eyes, addressing concerns like droopy eyelids and under-eye bags. Beyond its cosmetic benefits, this procedure can also enhance peripheral vision for some patients. This surgical procedure focuses on either the upper or lower eyelids and is often combined to achieve optimal results.

How Blepharoplasty Helps You Look Younger

Getting eyelid surgery can rejuvenate your facial appearance in more ways than one. Consider:

  1. Blepharoplasty can recontour the upper eyelid. The loss or narrowing of the upper eyelid can give the appearance of a small, weak eye or simply of perpetual fatigue. Getting an upper blepharoplasty can provide a more youthful contour.
  2. Lower blepharoplasty can eliminate under-bag eyes. When you always have big, purple bags under your eyes, it can create the illusion that you are constantly exhausted or lack youthful vigor. Eyelid surgery can eliminate these bags altogether.
  3. Lower blepharoplasty can reduce superficial wrinkles. By tightening the skin beneath your eye, blepharoplasty can minimize the appearance of creases and superficial wrinkles, including crow’s feet. This can have a significant anti-aging effect.
  4. Upper blepharoplasty can minimize forehead wrinkles. Those with droopy eyelids may sometimes need to raise their eyebrows simply to see better. Over time, this can contribute to the formation of deep forehead lines. Blepharoplasty, especially performed on the upper eyelids, can help address this.

Achieve Lasting Rejuvenation Through Eyelid Surgery

Though the eyelids are a small part of the body, they can have an outsized effect on your overall appearance. Correcting issues with your eyelids can refresh your appearance in more ways than one, leading to a rejuvenated appearance that lasts a long time.
