The eyes are often one of the first areas of the face to start showing signs of serious aging, and the results of this aging can be aesthetically devastating for many people who experience them. If you look in the mirror and you’re not happy with what you see, it may be time to consider plastic surgery to help restore your youthful appearance and self-esteem.
Blepharoplasty is an anti-aging surgery that focuses on rejuvenating the eye and eyelid area by tightening the skin and repositioning tissues for better contour. This procedure can be a great choice for people struggling with the effects of aging eyes. If you’re wondering if eyelid surgery is right for you, read on for some signs that you should consider investing in upper or lower lid blepharoplasty.
You Look Tired or Angry All the Time
One of the surprising effects of eye aging is that the resting facial expressions can change as well. Many people start noticing that they look tired all the time—or worse, friends, family and even new acquaintances notice a change. Depending on the individual facial structure and the problems with the eyelids, the resting expression could become angry, sad, or tired, but regardless, this permanent change in expression can be a good reason to seek blepharoplasty.
You Have Permanent Bags Under Your Eyes
Temporary eye bags are a common occurrence for many people, but when they become an everyday problem, it’s time to consider more lasting solutions. Blepharoplasty is a good option for eye bags caused by sagging skin and fat in the lower eyelids. Surgery for bags under eyes can reposition this fat and re-sculpt the eye area, providing better support for the tissues and preventing the fat from pushing against the lower lid. Re-contouring under-eye bags also has the benefit of brightening the facial expression and creating a more alert appearance overall.
You Have Droopy Eyelids
If your upper lids droop, it could just be an annoyance that affects your overall expression and youthfulness. However, sometimes the upper lids droop so much that they actually affect vision and create practical as well as aesthetic issues. Blepharoplasty for droopy eyelids can tighten the skin and rejuvenate the entire eye area, helping you to look more alert, interested, and of course, more youthful.
You’re Embarrassed By Your Eyelids
The bottom line is that if you’re not happy with the appearance of your eyelids and they cause you embarrassment, then you should consider blepharoplasty or some other anti-aging treatment to improve your facial aesthetics. Plastic surgery is highly personal, and you and you alone will know when it’s time to consider anti-aging surgery to improve your appearance and overall confidence. Blepharoplasty can do more than rejuvenate the eye area, it can also help rejuvenate your self-esteem and allow you to feel more youthful and vibrant once again. What’s not to love?
