Look Alive! How Eyelid Surgery Can Rejuvenate Your Appearance
It may not matter if you get four hours of sleep or 14 hours of sleep; some people look perpetually exhausted. No matter what efforts you take to revitalize your appearance, that sleepy, droopy, and almost sad expression remains. Sagging eyelids are typically the culprit, and only surgical help can correct them. If you’re tired of being told that you look tired, eyelid surgery can help you look more awake, refreshed, and rejuvenated.
Droopy Upper Eyelids
Droopy upper eyelids are the result of sagging upper eyelid skin. Shifting fat pockets can also contribute to sagging upper lids. Because of the excess tissue in your upper eyelids, it may look as though your eyelids are always partly closed. As sleepy individuals often feel like they can barely open their eyes, droopy upper eyelids contribute to a permanently tired look, which can further propagate an exhausted or sorrowful appearance.
Bags Under Your Eyes
Bags under your eyes are a classic sign of needing more sleep. However, some adults develop these due to genetics and shifting fat pads. Even after several nights in a row of excellent quality sleep, you may see no improvement in the bags beneath your eyes. The old trick of sticking a metal spoon in the freezer and then pressing it to the area beneath your eyes is not an effective long-term solution.
Eyelid Surgery Can Reawaken Your Appearance
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can help both droopy upper eyelids and bags underneath the eyes. Whether you have one or both of these issues, this procedure can restore a brighter and more alert appearance to the area around the eyes. For upper eyelid surgery, the surgeon removes excess skin and repositions or removes the fat deposits to tighten and lift the upper eyelid. For lower eyelid surgery, the surgeon removes excess skin and removes or redistributes excess fat to eliminate bags. Within a few weeks, the results will be apparent, and you will have a more youthful and revitalized appearance. Your new, refreshed look can last for many years.
Eyelid surgery can improve the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids to restore a refreshed, youthful, and alert appearance.
