Are you one of those people who look perpetually exhausted? It does not matter if you slept for four hours or if you slept 20 hours, you always look tired. It doesn’t matter the effort that you go through to rejuvenate your appearance. You always have a sleepy, worn out, and sad appearance. It could be that sagging eyelids are to blame. If that is the case, you may be interested in learning how you can rejuvenate your appearance with eyelid surgery.
Why Do Your Upper Eyelids Look Droopy?
You did not always have droopy upper eyelids. In fact, when you look at pictures of yourself from 10 years ago, you looked awake and revitalized. However, when you look at pictures that were taken just a couple of days ago, you look like you’re almost asleep. What changed?
As we age, we may begin to develop excess tissue on our upper eyelids. This excess tissue makes your eyelids look droopy or like you are partially asleep. Since you can barely open your eyes, people believe that you constantly have a sorrowful or exhausted appearance.
Why Do You Have Bags Under Your Eyes?
For some people, the fat pads in the lower eyelids shift. Even after getting nights of good sleep, the bags will remain. Outside of eyelid surgery, there may not be a long-term effective solution to address this condition.
How Eyelid Surgery Can Revitalize Your Appearance
Eyelid surgery can help reverse droopy upper eyelids as well as the bags underneath your eyes. If you just have one of these conditions, eyelid surgery can help. If you have both of these conditions, surgery can address these issues simultaneously.
When treating your upper eyelid, the surgeon is going to remove excess skin and reposition fat deposits. The goal is to tighten and lift the upper eyelid. If you are having lower eyelid surgery, your surgeon is going to get rid of excess skin and either remove or redistribute excess fat in the lower eyelid.
Am I a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
To be a good candidate for this procedure, you need to be in generally good health. It is a surgical procedure, and so the healthier you are and the healthier the skin is in the area that’s being treated, the better the end results are going to be. It is also good to be cognizant of what the procedure can do for you and what it cannot do for you. If you walk into the procedure with realistic expectations, you are going to be happy with the end results.
