Your eyes are one of your most prominent facial features; they express your emotions and are the first area to show damage when your youthful appearance begins to deteriorate. Age, sun damage, hereditary factors, and physical stresses all contribute to wrinkles, sagging skin, and bags beneath the eyes. Since the skin around the eyes is thin, the signs of aging usually manifest in this region earlier than the surrounding areas.
Blepharoplasty restores a youthful appearance to the eye region by tightening loose tissues and removing or redistributing pockets of fat.
What Can an Eyelid Lift Improve?
Natural aging, sun damage, and repeated eye movements contribute to the breakdown and loosening of the eyelid tissues. This causes us to look older and more fatigued than we are. Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper and lower eyelids to restore a refreshed and youthful appearance.
Ability to Express Emotions
Your eyes are responsible for conveying your emotions. As you age and the tissues around the eyes begin to break down, your range of available emotions becomes limited to those of stress, sadness, and fatigue. Blepharoplasty allows patients the ability to express a full range of emotions once again.
Range of Vision
The drooping of the upper eyelid obstructs your vision when your eyes are open. This can make driving and other activities difficult and dangerous. Blepharoplasty opens up the eyes and reduces visual impairment and emotional distress.
