Blepharoplasty - What Eyelid Surgery Looks Like
If you feel like your eyes are aging quicker than the rest of your body and are shocked by the appearance of your tired eyes when you look in the mirror, you are not alone. The eyes are surrounded by very delicate skin that tends to show signs of aging first. We can be inadvertently hard on our eyes from applying makeup to roughly, sun exposure without proper protection and improper skincare in general. Luckily fixing your sagging eyelids is just a procedure away. Ask your doctor if you are a good candidate for a procedure like this after telling them different things you may be concerned about.
What is Blepharoplasty
This procedure is used to lift the eyelid for a more youthful appearance. Blepharoplasty removes excess skin, muscle, and fat. If you have noticed that it takes significant effort to blink and raise your lids due to the excess of skin and muscles on your lid and skin that has drooped low enough to affect your peripheral vision are some things to consider if you think you are a candidate for blepharoplasty.
How to Prepare for Post Surgery
Though blepharoplasty is generally done in an outpatient setting you will need someone to drive you home due to the blurred vision and to avoid straining your eyes. Your eyes may be sensitive to light for some time but a good pair of sunglasses will be sure to make sure you are able to get out and around during recovery. An ice pack on the eyes during recovery will help the swelling and will help soothe discomfort you may feel.
If you are concerned about the lack of youthful appearance you see in your eyes then you should consider eyelid surgery. With benefits including the elimination of excess and unwanted skin, reduction of puffy bags on your eyes, and help to get rid of the tired look of your eyes. Depending on how much excess skin you have on your lids, your peripheral vision could become impaired. No matter your reason for an eyelid surgery it is bound to create a more youthful appearance and will make you feel more confident in your skin.
