The eyes are multi-faceted in their functioning to your whole body system. They, of course, provide you with vision and color to what the world is all about. At the same time, they are considered the windows to the soul because they are incredibly versatile in giving another person clues to who you are – even as to who you are physically. If you are tired, it will most likely show in your eyes. For older people, the problem with their tired, droopy eyes lies with their eyelids. They may need eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty to remedy their condition.
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that aims to correct pouching, loose skin and sagging around the eyes. It also targets the removal of fatty deposits that cause the accumulation of puffy bags around the eyes. This surgical procedure works for both the upper and lower eyelids. In order for this surgery to make you look vibrant and well-rested, you should make the decision with a cosmetic surgeon to have blepharoplasty.
Yes, this surgery improves the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. It gives a rejuvenated appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes, making you look a lot more rested and alert. The surgery is definitely not meant to fix all the flaws present in your face; hence, it is more effective if you’re largely satisfied with your appearance except with respect to your eyelids area. Among Asian patients, blepharoplasty is an option to accentuate a crease to the upper eyelid.
Eyelid surgery can be performed by itself or you can combine it together with other facial cosmetic surgeries, like facelift and brow lift. It takes around seven to ten days before scars fade and for you to fully recover, appearance-wise, from the surgery. In the meantime before the recovery period, you may cover the visible marks of blepharoplasty with makeup.
Like any cosmetic procedure, it is important that you discuss with a surgeon about your concerns and goals and expectation for the surgery. You should be straightforward with the surgeon about your expectations and your lifestyle habits, if any, like smoking. This will provide the surgeon a gauge to create a comprehensive plan for your cosmetic enhancement.
