Our eyes play a large role in defining how we look. Some people feel that they can tell by looking in someone’s eyes if they are intelligent, if they are creative, if they are kind, or if they are sensitive. This is because the eyes express emotion.
In addition to expressing emotion, we use our eyes to see, explore and understand the world around us. Our eyelids are designed to protect our eyes from damage.
However, when a person’s eyelids become heavy and begin to sag, they can have a negative impact on a person’s appearance. They can make a person look sad, tired or angry, and can even make them look older.
Eyelid surgery, also known as a blepharoplasty, has been used for decades as a way of rejuvenating the area around the eyes. It can restore functionality to the eyes by removing obstacles caused by swollen, puffy eyelids.
It can also rejuvenate a person’s appearance, making them looking younger, happier and more vibrant. Eyelid surgery is designed to remove excessive fatty deposits that make a person’s eyes look puffy.
It is also designed to attack bags under the eyes, drooping eyelids and excessive skin and wrinkles on the lower eyelid.
Who is a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
Candidates for eyelid surgery must first enter the procedure with a realistic concept of what the surgery can do for them. Eyelid surgery will make a person look younger and more vibrant, but it will not make a person look like they did when they were a teenager.
Ideal candidates are non-smokers; they are healthy and they do not have any serious conditions that affect their eyes. Individuals who go into eyelid surgery with a clear goal in mind for the procedure are the ones who walk out with the best results.
It is good to remember that the eyelids are just one facet of the human face. Before having any procedure performed, it is important to consult with one of our expert cosmetic surgeons. They will evaluate your face and determine what procedures are right for you.
Over the course of the first few weeks after surgery, the swelling will subside. The results will be a better-defined eyelid and a face that looks rejuvenated and younger.
