5 Reasons to Stop Putting Off that Blepharoplasty
Although many patients suffer from droopy eyes or have bags under their eyes, not nearly enough of them realize that they can benefit significantly by having blepharoplasty performed. However, there are a few great reasons why you need to stop putting off what has been hailed as one of the most effective forms of cosmetic surgery in the past few years.
1. Improve your Vision
Patients often don’t realize that their eyesight can be affected because the skin around their eyelids is beginning to droop. This also makes them look a lot older than they are, and having blepharoplasty performed will ensure that all of the excess or drooping skin is carefully removed. During this procedure, the upper eyelid will be lifted a little as well and it has resulted in many patients experiencing greater comfort in their brow areas because they no longer have to strain these muscles to keep their eyes open.
2. Reduce Bags and Fine Lines
If you re unfortunate enough to have permanent bags under your eyes regardless of whether you get enough rest or not, this procedure will help eliminate them once and for all. In most cases, you will also notice a reduction in the appearance of dark circles around your eyes afterwards. When the surgeon is trimming away excess skin, it tightens existing skin in the eyelid area, resulting in a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles as well.
3. Results are Long Lasting
Unlike some other forms of cosmetic surgery that may have to be repeated every few months such as Botox injections, the effects of blepharoplasty last virtually forever. If you have been looking for a long term solution to your droopy eyelids and the unsightly crow’s feet around your eyes, this is the right procedure to have performed. It is important to remember though, that you will need to take care of your skin by keeping it well moisturized after the sutures have healed.
4. Enjoy Improved Self-confidence
Most patients have reported that their levels of self-confidence have soared tremendously after having eyelid surgery performed because it makes them feel more comfortable with the appearance of their facial features. If you have been feeling self-conscious about the fact that your eyelids are drooping or that you have an excessive amount of fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, having blepharoplasty performed will definitely change your life.
5. Look Awake Again – Naturally
Surgeons who perform the surgery ensure that the end results look as natural as possible, while still enabling the patient to look ‘awake’ again. The sutures created during this surgery are extremely small and are situated in the creases of the eyelids and lower eyelashes, which mean that any scarring will be absolutely minimal after healing has taken place.
