Your eyes are one of the first things people notice about you. Our eyes are also one of the first features around our face that starts to show signs of aging. If you’re like the rest of us, you want to make sure you put your best face forward and make a lasting first impression. Here are five reasons why most of our patients undergo blepharoplasty and why you should consider one too.
1. You’re Tired of Looking Tired
As we age, our skin tends to stop producing as much collagen and starts to lose its elasticity. This, in turn, can make your eyelids start to droop. In addition to puffiness and wrinkles around the eye, you may start to look perpetually tired, bored or uninterested. In cases of drooping eyelids, upper eyelid surgery or upper blepharoplasty can reduce make you look more alert and awake. Lower eyelid surgery can also help you get rid of those pesky under-eye bags.
2. You Can’t See as Well as You Used to
Have you noticed your eyesight isn’t as sharp as it used to be? Have you also gone to the eye doctor to find out your eyeglass prescription hasn’t changed? Your blurred or hazy vision may actually be caused by your dropping eyelids. Drooping eyelids can cause a big disruption to your peripheral vision, which poses danger when it comes to driving. Consider upper blepharoplasty for a quick fix.
3. Your Eyelid Crease Disappeared
As we age, putting on makeup isn’t as easy as it used to be. After spending all that time on your makeup, you may have looked in the mirror just to notice that all your hard work has gotten lost in the excess skin weighing down your eyelid. Upper blepharoplasty, or a special double eyelid lift, can recreate your eyelid crease to give your eyes a larger, wider appearance.
4. Your Eyes are Suffering from Allergies
This one may seem like a stretch, but hear us out. Chronic allergies may have caused your eyes to be chronically puffy. You may have also noticed that the strain on your puffy eyes has also caused dark circles to form over the years. Say goodbye to swollen, dark eyes and hello to a refreshed, youthful appearance with lower blepharoplasty. While you may still suffer from allergies following eyelid surgery, your eyes won’t have to suffer with you.
5. You Want to Treat Yourself
When it comes down to it, most of our patients come in considering blepharoplasty because they want to boost their self-confidence. There’s nothing wrong with that! Whether you’re ready to jump into a new job, have reached a milestone in your life, or are looking for a new way to practice some self-care, an eyelid lift can help enhance your confidence while reducing the appearance of droopiness, fine lines, wrinkles and puffiness around the eyes.
