When Your Eyes Need More
You may have heard the saying “the eyes have it.” Have what? The “it” factor, that special bit of magic that makes a face a beautiful thing to behold. In truth, the appearance of the eyes goes well beyond aesthetic beauty. When the eyes age, they look heavy. This may make you appear tired. According to market research, individuals with heavy eyelids or bags under the eyes are perceived too much more than tired; they look angry and unfriendly.
In recent years, eyelid rejuvenation has become a hot topic of discussion. Men and women of all ages are regaining their friendly, vibrant vibe by reducing lines and wrinkles, lifting brows, and opening the eyes, so they reveal a greater extent of inner energy. The question that many patients have is whether or not they need a blepharoplasty. Let’s take a look at the eyes and what can be done to revive them.
Blepharoplasty is the surgical rejuvenation procedure conducted by cosmetic surgeons to address specific concerns. The procedure doesn’t always involve both upper and lower lid areas. Some patients need the only lower blepharoplasty to remove under-eye bags. Some need upper eyelid rejuvenation to keep skin from sagging into their line of site. The procedure is conducted based on individual need and desired outcome.
Why the Eyes Need Help
The eyelids and area just around the eyes are one of the areas of the body where the skin is most fragile. The tissue around the eyes is highly susceptible to the effects of UV exposure, as well as the loss of collagen that occurs with age. The more degradation that occurs in the connective tissue beneath the skin around the eyes, the more likely we are to see bags and sagging and lines.
What Exactly do The Eyes Need and When?
There is not a strict timeline on when a person may be “ready” for blepharoplasty. An individual in their thirties may have lived with heavy upper eyelids for their entire life, and want to remove excess skin to reveal more brightness. A person with minor bagging under the eyes may wish to reduce the appearance of puffiness using dermal fillers. The decision to undergo rejuvenating eyelid surgery is completely personal, and it is one we are happy to help you with.
