You’re likely reading this because you’ve become interested in learning more about problems with the appearance of your eyelids. Mature adults often experience drooping and sagging of the upper lids and puffiness in the lower lids. This is due primarily to less-supportive skin, a weakening of the nearby muscles, or a buildup of fatty tissue beneath the skin. These aren’t serious medical conditions, but the result is a tired, uninterested, and unhealthy look. Of course, drooping lower lids can actually inhibit your ability to see properly. An eyelid lift can correct these problems and provide you with eye rejuvenation.
An eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, is similar to a facelift in that a specified amount of skin is removed or repositioned. The lid skin is very thin, but it’s not difficult for an experienced skin surgeon to reposition the lid and remove excess fat that has accumulated beneath.
Sagging and Drooping
The upper eyelid skin can become wrinkled and loose as you age. This creates folds that result in a very unnatural appearance. It also creates a shadow effect that makes you look haggard or stern.
The lower lid can suffer from a buildup of fat just beneath the dermal layers. This causes the lower lash line to drop, and it also results in too much of the eyeball white becoming visible. If too much fat builds up beneath the skin, a bulbous area of skin can form well below the eye itself. It looks as though water is accumulating in this area and pushing out the skin. Eyelid surgery can correct these problems, and the procedure is simpler than you might think.
Consultation and Treatment
When we consult with you about eye rejuvenation, we examine the thickness of your eyelid skin, look for folds and creases that are formed by fat accumulation, and check the balance between the right- and left-side lids. This allows us to design a customized surgical procedure.
You’ll have to wear bandages for a few days, and you’ll be given antibiotics. Otherwise, all you need to do once you return home is change the bandages and wash the area carefully. We’ll schedule a follow-up visit so that we can monitor the progress.
Your eyes will now be more attentive in appearance, and this really changes the way you look. A youthful countenance is now apparent.
