Blepharoplasty, commonly referred to as eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance and function of the eyelids. The skin gradually loses its elasticity as it ages. A lack of elasticity plus the constant pull from gravity causes excessive skin to collect on the upper and lower eyelids. Excess skin on the lower eyelid causes wrinkles and bulges. On the upper eyelids, an extra fold of skin can hang over the eyelashes and get in the way of your sight. Eyelids surgery is mostly done for cosmetic reasons. However, it’s an effective way to improve sight in older people whose sagging upper eyelids get in the way of their vision. It’s a certain way to fix all these issues at once and restore your young appearance.
The patients’ eyes look brighter and clearer and this combined with trimmer eyelids will give them a more youthful appearance. Thus, the patient looks fresher and brighter rather than tired and stressed. Studies show that these physical improvements make the patient feel more confident and self-assured and boost their self-esteem.
