Eyelid surgery is officially called blepharoplasty, and it offers many benefits that may improve your vision and make you look more youthful. Skin loses elasticity as we age because of loss of elastin and collagen and this is more obvious in the delicate skin around the eyes. Because this skin is more fragile, the ageing process may begin as early as age 30. Since the eyes are usually the first thing we notice about people, we want them to give a good impression. The upper and lower lids begin to sag and are pushed out because of fat deposits making them appear puffy and baggy. You may look old beyond your years because of sagging eyelids and appear tired and sad when you aren’t.
The Main Benefits of Eyelid Surgery
When the muscles in your upper eyelids start to lose elasticity, they may begin to hang over your eye. If there are fat deposits in the eyelids they may hang lower and actually block your vision. You may find yourself raising your chin in order to see clearly or holding your eyes open wide. This could cause muscle strain in your neck as well as promote headaches. With eyelid surgery, the muscles and ligaments are tightened and your vision is no longer blocked.
The eyelids are one of the first places on the body that show our age. There are several reasons for this, including excess skin, drooping eyebrow, bulging fat deposits, loss of bone definition around the eye all of which promotes wrinkles. Eyelid surgery is effective for removing excess fat, muscle, and skin from both the upper and lower eyelids. When the eyelids are tightened and lifted, many wrinkles and fine lines around your eyes may be removed. Your eyelids may regain their youthful definition.
Bags under the eyes and dark circles make you look tired and even sick in some cases. Depending on your condition, they may also be removed. Bags are caused by excess skin that hangs because it is no longer elastic. They may also contain excess fat. Dr. Pacheco may remove the excess skin and fat.
