The eyelids are one of the first aspects of our face to show signs of aging, especially around the eyes. Bags and sagging upper eyelids are just part of growing old. With that being said, both conditions can be rectified using general surgery. Eyelid surgery is a relatively minor cosmetic procedure that may refresh the appearance of your face and leave you looking younger. Another clear benefit of eyelid surgery is the improvement to your vision. You can’t beat that!
What is Eyelid Surgery?
Cosmetic eyelid surgery is often used to improve the appearance and functionality of tired eyes dramatically. An eye specialist accomplishes this task by removing excess skin and loose pockets of fat from the upper and lower eyelids. Many patients combine treatments with a brow life to fully eliminate drooping eyelids or crow’s feet.
Of course, not everyone is an ideal candidate for eyelid surgery. The right candidate is at least 18-years-old, suffers from puffy eyelids, and is in good physical and mental health at the time of the procedure.
Eyelid drooping, sometimes known as ptosis, may occur in one or both of your eyes. With drooping, the eyelids can block or significantly reduce vision by obstructing the pupil entirely. For people with severe drooping, wearing glasses or even contacts can be difficult.
When it comes to eyelid drooping, the only real treatment available is eyelid surgery. The procedure removes and tightens the excess skin to improve overall vision and the appearance of the eyelid. With the drooping eyelids out of the way, eyeglasses or contact lenses may be administered to improve vision further.
