Our eyes are one of the most noticeable and attractive facial features we have. The way our eyes look can reveal a lot about how much sleep we’re getting, how we’re feeling, and how old we are. As we age, the skin around our eyes can become loose and droopy, making them appear worn out, dull, and inexpressive. However, blepharoplasty (eyelid lift surgery) can restore beauty, youthfulness, and a more vibrant expression to your eyes by addressing issues such as sagging skin and dark circles.
What Causes a Tired Expression and Aged Appearance?
The more we age, the more our eyes begin to lose that youthful and vibrant spark they once had. Blepharoplasty can remove excess skin and fat that contribute to your tired and aged look by addressing the following concerns.
No More Sagging Eyelids
Throughout our lives, we make countless eye movements and blinks, all of which cause stress on our eyelids. That is because the skin surrounding both the upper and lower eyelids is one of the thinnest on the body. Sagging in the upper and lower eyelids can be corrected by removing loose skin and displaced fat deposits from your eyes. This will give your eyes a more alert and youthful appearance.
Say Goodbye to Dark Circles
As we age, the muscles below the eyes can weaken, just like they do in others areas of our face, causing the lower eyelids to sag. On top of that, the skin that surrounds the muscle begins to lose elasticity due to reduced collagen production. Displaced fat can also cause the lower eyelids to look puffy. These three factors create the appearance of heavy bags and dark circles under the eyes. Lower blepharoplasty can minimize the appearance of bags and dark circles by removing excess fatty tissue and tightening the skin to restore a more youthful and natural appearance.
The Eyelid Surgery Procedure
Incisions for blepharoplasty are made along the natural fold of the upper eyelids for an upper eyelid lift, and they are either hidden inside the lower eyelids or just below the lower lashes for a lower eyelid lift. Excess fat deposits are removed or redistributed, muscles may be tightened, and loose skin is removed, leaving you with a smooth and youthful look.
Along with proper care, such as sun protection and a healthy diet, your results can last for many years.
