We have all walked into work or a family gathering only to have someone note that we “looked tired” or even sad. Eyes age faster than any other area of the body. The reason for this is that the skin on the eyelids is amongst the thinnest anywhere; when combined with constant blinking, sleeping, and eye movements throughout the day, the thin skin is put under a lot of strain and pressure, and it begins to weaken. Because of this, eyelids begin to droop, sag, and become puffy long before the rest of the face catches up.
Eyes are commonly chosen as an individual’s favorite facial feature. As an anchor of the face, our eyes hold many responsibilities, one of which is to convey emotions. When healthy and youthful looking, the eyes can express joy, excitement, and contentment, as well as anger. However, as the skin on your eyelids age, those emotions are limited to sadness and fatigue: the unfortunate circumstance of looking constantly tired.
Brighten up Your Eyes With Blepharoplasty
When the aging of your eyelids has become too bothersome for you, blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can assist in turning back the hands of the clock by returning youthfulness to your eyes. Blepharoplasty can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty on the upper eyelids can combat the excess skin and fat deposits that sag, droop, and hang over the eyes. Eyelid surgery can also help fix the excess fat on the lower eyelids that are responsible for the puffy “tired” bags that we so often see on our face. Blepharoplasty makes use of small incisions (in the crease of the eye for upper eyelid blepharoplasty and just beneath the lash line for lower blepharoplasty) to remove the excess skin, fat, and muscle that may impede vision or give you the tired, just-rolled-out-of-bed appearance.
With eyelid surgery, small changes can make a world of difference to both your aesthetic appearance as well as your vision. Open up your eyes and let them play the role they were meant to play.
