Benefits of Eyelid Surgery That May Surprise You

istock 516604614 Eyelid surgery – also called blepharoplasty – is a popular procedure in the United States. In 2019, it was the Number 3 procedure in this country, with more than 211,000 procedures performed. That was a 2 percent increase in procedures compared to 2018.

Blepharoplasty creates attractive, natural results. It can brighten up your entire facial appearance by eliminating excess fat and sagging skin on the upper and lower eyelids. Although the overall benefits of this procedure are clear, will it be beneficial to you? Experienced facial plastic surgeon Dr. Johnny Mao can help you decide.

In the meantime, consider some of the surprising advantages of this rejuvenating procedure:

  • See better. Sagging, drooping upper eyelid skin can partially block your view. It’s a physical obstruction as you try to read, cook, craft, see the sunset or take in an expansive view. After eyelid surgery, you may be surprised at how your field of view is opened up. It’s a great benefit for people who have been feeling depressed or unhappy with the way their vision has changed because of saggy eyelids.
  • Communicate emotion and mood more accurately. Drooping and puffy eyelids tend to make a person look tired, angry, frustrated or generally unapproachable. Perhaps you’ve experienced someone saying, “what’s wrong?” when you had no idea that your face was communicating something different than you felt. By restoring a more open eye area and a defined eyelid contour, you will find that other people may start reading your emotions more accurately.
  • Look naturally alert. As we age, no one wants to look tired and old. Unfortunately, that is exactly what sagging eyelids bring about. Restoring youthful eyelids can make you look years younger, and ensure you’ll look as alert as you feel.
