3 Reasons to Get Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery involves small changes that can have a big effect on how rested and youthful you look. The procedure is so successful that it consistently ranks as one of the most popular plastic surgeries in the world, particularly among men and women who want their facial expression to reflect the youthful energy they feel inside.

Here, the team at The Plastic Surgery Group shares three reasons why you might want to consider eyelid surgery.

Smooth and Tighten Droopy Upper Eyelids

With age and gravity, the skin on the upper eyelids can stretch, wrinkle and start to droop, making you look older and more tired than you actually are. Your upper eyelids may have so much excess skin that it spills over your upper lashline, obstructing vision and causing peripheral vision loss. The visual impairment may lead to you constantly tilting your head back or raising your eyebrows in order to see more clearly.

Eyelid surgery helps to recreate smoother, more youthful looking lids and eliminate any visual interference caused by excess skin. During surgery, the plastic surgeon trims excess folds of skin and tightens the remaining skin.

Create More Definition in the Upper Eyelid Crease

Another reason you may seek out eyelid surgery is to define the fold or crease of the upper eyelid if it is poorly defined or has disappeared due to the effects of gravity and age. There are a few ways to create or define absent or minimal creases. Excess skin, fat and muscle can be removed if they are weighing down on your eyelids and concealing your crease; or internal sutures can be placed to draw the tissues of your eyelids together and form a crease or fold.

Reduce Puffiness in the Lower Eyelids

Eyelid surgery might be a wise choice if you have excess skin or puffiness on your lower eyelids. During lower eyelid surgery, the plastic surgeon removes excess fat and skin, returns displaced fat to its proper position and tightens the remaining skin; this in turn reduces puffiness and significantly improves the appearance of your eyes.
