It’s funny how changing one facial feature can make such a difference in how you look (and in how you feel about yourself). Take the eyelids, for example – if you are thinking of having a plastic surgery procedure, your eyelids may be the last thing you were thinking about changing, but this type of surgery can make a big difference. Read on for some reasons why you should consider eyelid surgery!
4+ reasons to have eyelid surgery
Eyelid surgery, also known as “blepharoplasty,” is a low-risk procedure to remove excess skin and fat around the eyes. It typically takes about 2 hours to complete and is an out-patient procedure that needs little downtime to recover from; most patients can go back to work within a couple of days. Although this simple procedure can produce dramatic results, oftentimes patients will combine blepharoplasty with another procedure, such as a brow lift or a face lift. Blepharoplasty can:
1. Make you look less tired. When eyelids look heavy, it can give you the appearance of always looking exhausted and having low energy.
2. Give you a smoother forehead. If your upper eyelids are getting in the way of seeing correctly, it can lead to you always raising your brow to see better, which can result in wrinkles on the forehead from this repeated action. This can make you look older than you really are.
3. Give you more confidence. You’ll no longer start the day by looking in the mirror and feeling frustrated at those puffy, tired-looking eyes. You’ll look more alert and younger, and that’s a great way to start the day!
4. Help you to see better. If you have a lot of excess tissue around the eyes, it can obstruct your vision. This isn’t just annoying, but it can be dangerous if it affects your vision so much you have a hard time seeing to drive.
