In the cosmetic surgery field, an eye lift, medically referred to as blepharoplasty, is a simple procedure that can help improve the look of the eyes. It is also one of the safest and the most efficient procedures that can provide significant results.
The first thing people notice on you is your eyes and when there is an extra layer of skin on your eyelid, causing them to develop a droopy appearance, you will portray an unappealing and tired look when you’re interacting with others. The simple reason behind why your eyes sag is because with age, the skin loses its elasticity, resulting in a saggy look that can affect how your upper and lower eyelid appears.
Furthermore, the thin layer that holds fat on the eyelids loosens with age and eventually develops into bags under the eyes. Undergoing an eye lift can help remedy the situation.
A Safe Solution to Droopy Eyes
An eye lift is indeed a safe procedure that can deliver promising results. By eliminating the bags under your eyes bags, you will see an instant change in the contours of your face and you will also look more youthful and vibrant.
Once you find a surgeon who can successfully perform the surgery, there are a few preliminary steps you will need to take to prepare yourself for the procedure. You will need to schedule a consultation with your chosen care provider. During the consultation, you will need to provide him with your medical history.
The best candidates for the procedure are those who are in good general health. If you have any underlying health conditions that may cause the surgery to be risky, your doctor will suggest postponing the procedure. You need to have realistic expectations about the results you experience and be ready to follow any instructions given to you by your surgeon.
During the surgery, your doctor will make an incision through the natural lines of your eyes. He will then remove the underlying fat and excess skin. Once the necessary corrections are made, the incisions will be closed.
When the surgery is complete, you must avoid extensive strain on your eyes. You may have to endure a few days of dry eyes and swelling, but this is temporary and will subside quickly. You can also help ease any discomfort by using ice packs and eye drops. Most importantly, you should make sure to keep the treated area cleaned.
Experiencing The New You
Once the surgery is completed and you have fully recovered, you can expect your saggy eyes to be gone for good. It is a fast and effective way to reduce the signs of aging and the persistent look of being tired. The procedure can also help reduce fine lines and various creases around your eyes and make the skin in the region more firm. Overall, your eyes will look more uplifted, youthful, and aesthetically pleasing.
In addition to the visual changes you experience, you will also benefit from functional advantages as well. Having saggy, droopy eyes can hinder your vision and make it difficult to do daily activities such as driving, walking, and working.
