One can’t stop age taking its toll on the face, in the form of wrinkles, sagging or loose skin, and bulges or bags below the eyes. Looking at the bright side however, cosmetic plastic surgery such as eyelid surgery can do much to cover up or even get rid of these problems. Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty can make the eyes look more alert, rested, and youthful; and the results last – for several years.
Two Kinds of Procedures
Eyelid surgery is of two kinds: upper eyelid surgery and lower eyelid surgery. While the former also known as “eyelift” lessens excess fat and skin present in the upper eyelids; the latter decreases excess puffiness and bulging of the lower eyelids. Whatever be the reason behind your opting for an eyelid surgery, it is essential that you select the right plastic surgeon to do it for you.
Effective Correction of Aesthetic Problems
Most of the patients who go in for eyelid surgery are in the 35 and 35+ age group. People in this age group are affected by several aesthetic problems because of the skin’s loss of elasticity and the constant gravitational pull. Several of these problems can impair vision.
Included among the eyelid related aesthetic problems that eyelid surgery can correct are • Under eye circles and bags • Hanging skin • Surplus fatty deposits • Excess skin which makes the upper eyelid’s natural folds less visible • Fine wrinkles on the lower eyelids • Redundant skin of the forehead and upper eyelid
A great advantage of the eyelid surgery procedure is that the incision lines are so designed that the scars would be well-hidden among the natural lines on the eyelid. So, if you want to reap the benefits of younger looking, refreshed eyes, eyelid surgery is a worthwhile option.
