The eyes are often the first thing people notice on the face. However, with the natural ageing process, the eyelid region becomes smaller, wrinkles develop, and fat bags become more prominent, making you look tired and older than your age. To fight these signs of ageing, patients undergo a plastic surgery procedure of the eyes called blepharoplasty.
In this article, Artiste Plastic Surgery discusses the benefits of undergoing an eyelid surgery and how can it help make you look younger:
- Open and brighten your eyes
Drooping eyelids can make your eyes look smaller and puffier, and in some cases, they can blur your eye’s vision. Upper eyelid surgery corrects drooping eyelids by removing excess skin through an incision and repositions and lifts the fat to fully open and brighten your eyes.
- Reduce wrinkles around the eye area
The loss of skin elasticity causes crow’s feet wrinkles, and bags under the eyes. During the procedure, your surgeon will remove the excess skin and tighten the tissues, helping to smooth out the eyelid area and eliminates wrinkles, resulting in a smoother and more even appearance.
- Tighter, softer and fuller-looking eyelids
Heavy and puffy under-eye bags make someone look exhausted. These eye bags are usually due to muscle weakness, genetics or ageing. Lower eyelid surgery can eliminate the sagging and swelling of the fat bags under the eyes to provide a tighter, softer, and fuller eyelids and cheek junction.
- Subtle facial symmetry
Some patients have mismatched eyelids wherein one eyelid looks heavier than the other. Blepharoplasty can correct this concern by lifting the hooded or drooping eyelid to match the other, achieving subtle facial symmetry.
