As many of us grow older, it is natural to become dissatisfied with the way age, stress, the sun and other factors have taken their toll on our skin, particularly our faces. Fine lines and wrinkles develop, then creases. Another feature of aging is that the muscles in the skin get weaker, causing our skin to be droopier in several various areas. The eyelids and brows are especially prone to this, drooping down over our eyes and causing us to look as if we’re only half awake. In some cases, this can even affect our vision. The good news is that there is a special cosmetic surgery that is especially designed to correct droopy eyelids and improve the overall appearance of the areas around your eyes. This surgery is called blepharoplasty.
What Does Blepharoplasty Do?
Blepharoplasty is a type of surgery that is meant to remove excess fat from the area around the eyes, especially the eyelids. It will also remove some excess skin, lifting up and smoothing out the skin. This removes the tired, half awake and often angry looking appearance that drooping eyelids give you. The result of blepharoplasty is that you look more alert and rejuvenated.
Getting Blepharoplasty Surgery
Before you get blepharoplasty surgery, you will have to find out from your doctor and eye specialists about what you should do beforehand. For example, are there any medications you are taking that you should stop taking from a certain point before the surgery to a certain point after the surgery? The eye doctors will also make sure you have a good candidate for blepharoplasty. After the eye surgery, there is some aftercare you need to follow to the letter. Your eye doctors will help you understand what the aftercare entails and why it is important. With their help, you will have fabulous and noticeably younger looking eyes!
