Three Reasons to Consider an Eyelid Lift

Age doesn’t just cause wrinkles on your skin and aches in your joints; it can also cause your eyelids to droop and sag. Without youthful and healthy eyelids, your face looks much older and fatigued than you probably feel. Cosmetic eyelid surgery, also known as an eyelid lift or blepharoplasty, is a minor procedure that can have a major positive impact on the appearance of your face. Why not make it your 2018 New Year’s resolution to use an eyelid lift to look like it’s 2008 again?

Combat Unwanted Signs of Aging

All skin loses its firmness as you age. By the time you turn 30 and continue into your 40s, your body produces less and less collagen and elastin each year. Since collagen and elastin are the two most important components of healthy skin, their growing absence leaves the skin with no choice but to become stretched and weak. The eyelids stretch and the muscles supporting them become weaker with time, forcing stores of fat to create a saggy, droopy appearance. This can impact the upper lids and create bags under the eyes. Fortunately, an eyelid lift removes that excess skin to help you look much younger.

Alleviate Vision Problems

It’s very possible that your baggy and droopy upper eyelids are interfering with your vision as well. During blepharoplasty surgery, your ophthalmologist will cut along the fold of the upper eyelid to remove excess skin, muscle, and fat. Doing so will alleviate vision obstructions and help you see much better than before.

Improve Cosmetic Problems

More than anything else, an eyelid lift will give your eyes a rested and more youthful appearance by removing excess skin and bags under the eyes. Many patients capitalize on the eyelid lift by having it performed in conjunction with other procedures like a face lift or brow lift. Since incisions are hidden and the recovery process is relatively short and simple, you can enjoy all of the benefits of an eyelid lift without dramatically interrupting your daily routine!
