Your eyes are one of the fastest and easy ways to make a good impression, because the eyes are known for being very expressive. Conversely, your eyes can make a bad impression if you have haggard-looking eyes due to droopy eyelids and puffy bags underneath your eyes. This aesthetic concern on the eyelid area is pretty common for both men and women in their thirties and up. The wrinkling and sagging may occur in either the upper or lower eyelids, or both. Fortunately for those having cosmetic issues with respect to eyelids, there is a specific eyelid surgery that can effectively remedy sags, bags and wrinkles.
Eyelid lift surgery, as it is sometimes called, or blepharoplasty is a procedure for removing excess skin and fat that are found around the lids. As puffy bags and droopy eyelids are eliminated, you will have a fresh-look. In other words, you can start saying goodbye to the aged and tired appearance. Blepharoplasty surgery is not always about aesthetics. For some people, this procedure is performed to remove excess upper lid skin that is blocking vision. Nevertheless, this surgical procedure makes use of well-placed incisions and sutures to enhance your eyelid’s appearance. Blepharoplasty is normally performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia alone or conscious sedation.
