What Are the Benefits of Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty, commonly known as eyelid surgery, is a procedure that removes excess skin from your eyelids. The surgery can be performed on the lower eyelids, upper eyelids, or both, depending on your specific concerns and goals.  It is a low-risk procedure that offers a significant improvement in appearance and, often, an improvement to the field of vision.

If you have hooded eyes or under-eye bags or if your vision is obstructed by your eyelids, you may have already considered eyelid surgery.  Keep reading to learn more about blepharoplasty and the benefits of this popular procedure!

What are the Benefits of Blepharoplasty? 

Achieve a Younger, More Vibrant Look

The eyes are among the most prominent features on your face. The delicate skin around your eyes is especially susceptible to the effects of aging.  As you grow older, your skin naturally loses elasticity.

The loss of elasticity can cause the skin on your face to droop or develop wrinkles. Under-eye bags and hooded eyelids can appear and become more noticeable over time, making you look tired and older than you are.

By removing excess skin and restructuring the tissues around your eyes, blepharoplasty will dramatically change your appearance.  Your eyes will look more vibrant and awake, restoring a youthful appearance to your entire face.

Improves Vision

Beyond the cosmetic benefits, blepharoplasty can also help improve vision.

As you age, the upper eyelid muscles can weaken.  As a result, they may not be able to lift excess skin.

The extra skin and tissue can then drape over your eyelashes and pupils, obstructing your vision. This is referred to as dermatochalasis.

A common sign of dermatochalasis is decreased vision. Other symptoms include headaches and eyestrain from prolonged raising of the eyebrows and forehead to see.

Droopy upper eyelids can make seeing and performing routine activities like driving and reading difficult. Removing extra skin and recontouring underlying tissue through blepharoplasty can    expand your line of sight for improved vision.  It’ll be easier to see and perform simple, everyday tasks without the loose skin blocking your vision.

Restores Eyelid Definition

Upper eyelid skin is composed of collagen, a natural protein that makes the skin firm. With time, you may experience the gradual loss of muscle tone and collagen, causing skin to sag and droop.

Consequently, your once smooth, well-defined eyelid crease can disappear. If aging has caused a loss of definition, blepharoplasty can create a more defined crease by removing the loose skin.

This can enhance your eyelid crease and revitalize the appearance of your eyes. The effects of blepharoplasty are long-term, so you can look forward to enjoying a more youthful gaze for years to come.

Boosts Confidence

Are you tired of your eyes looking “tired”?  If you feel self-conscious about looking tired or older, blepharoplasty can help you achieve a more youthful and revitalized appearance that you can be proud of.

The blepharoplasty procedure can trim, reposition, and tighten excess skin around the eyes, resulting in a refreshed look. The transformation can help you reclaim youthful beauty, natural glow, and self-confidence.

Most people who’ve had blepharoplasty say the procedure was life-changing and made them happier and more confident afterwards.
