Eyelid surgery, otherwise known as blepharoplasty, is designed to enhance the appearance of the eyes. This procedure effectively erases stubborn signs of aging such as puffiness around the eyes and lax skin, leaving behind a natural-looking, youthful, smooth appearance. In short, yes, eyelid surgery can indeed make your eyes appear younger. Below, respected cosmetic surgeon Dr. Roham discusses the anti-aging benefits of eyelid surgery.
Who Should Have Eyelid Surgery?
With time, the eyelids stretch and sag, and the underlying supportive muscles become weak. The goal of eyelid surgery is to improve the appearance of the skin around the eyelids by eliminating excess skin, fat, and tissue in this area, resulting in a fresh-faced appearance. This procedure can be performed on either the upper or lower eyelid, or both, to produce a dramatic difference.
Eyelid surgery is an ideal solution for individuals who have started showing signs of aging near the eyes. Additionally, this procedure can be a great option for those who are not ready to undergo a facelift but still want to significantly improve their appearance. If you have started noticing any of the following signs of aging when you look in the mirror, it may be time for an eyelid surgery consultation with Dr. Roham:
- Drooping or loose skin in the upper eyelids
- Folds near the eyes that disrupt the natural contour
- An impairment in vision due to sagging upper eyelid skin
- Wrinkles on the eyelids
- Puffy bags under the eyes that contribute to a tired or older appearance
- Lax skin on the lower eyelids, revealing the whites of the eyes under the iris
Eliminate Saggy Skin
Sagging skin on the upper and lower eyelids can make you appear older than you are. These factors can even contribute to an angry or tired appearance, even when you feel perfectly fine. Eyelid surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat, effectively resolving these issues.
Address Stubborn Lines and Wrinkles
Fine wrinkles are often the first sign of aging to pop up in the delicate eye area; for many patients, it is also the most difficult to get rid of or improve. With eyelid surgery, fine wrinkles are targeted and treated, allowing you to experience smooth contours on the upper and lower lids and enjoy natural-looking results.
