When you’re young, even a long, wild night doesn’t leave you looking tired. But a few years later, you can wake up well rested and still look exhausted. What gives?
In most cases, it’s your eyelids.
As you age, your eyelid shape can change due to age, sun damage, genetics and more. They can droop and become puffy and wrinkle. Usually, these changes are just cosmetic concerns, but in some cases, your eyelids can start to limit your field of vision. No matter the situation, blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is an excellent long-term solution.
About Eyelid Surgery
With blepharoplasty, excess eyelid skin and fat is removed, tightening the skin, reducing puffiness and opening up your field of vision. The result is a younger-looking appearance, giving off the effect of being well rested.
Eyelid surgery can be medical or cosmetic, depending on what motivates you to seek the procedure.
The best candidates for eyelid surgery are individuals in overall good health who want to make changes to their eye area either because of how it looks or how it is impacting their ability to see. There is no set line at which eyelid surgery is ideal. However, if you notice any of the following, it indicates you could experience big benefits from the procedure:
- Eyelids that feel heavy
- Headaches from using forehead muscles to hold the lids higher
- Reduced field of vision
- Puffiness on the upper or lower lids
- Lines and wrinkles
- Skin touching the lashes
- Droopiness at the corners of the eyes
