People mistakenly believe that individuals who undergo plastic surgery do so because they are vain or because they are so concerned about their appearance that they are willing to undergo any surgical procedure to keep them looking younger longer. And while it is true that many people who undergo cosmetic surgery do so to improve their appearance, it is not necessarily the result of vanity.
For example, an individual with already small eyes may feel that their eyes completely disappear when they squint or when they smile. As they age and their eyelids start to droop, it may become even harder for their eyes to be seen. In addition to affecting the way they look, drooping eyelids can also affect their ability to see. Many of these individuals opt to get eyelid surgery, and they are happy with the results.
Another reason why people have eyelid surgery is because they are tired of looking tired. Some people may have eyelid surgery done in conjunction with other procedures. After the recovery period has ended, individuals who have had eyelid surgery comment on how much happier they look.
There is no age limit to getting eyelid surgery. However, most patients choose to do so when they are in their early 40’s. This is because around this age the body starts showing signs of wear and tear around the eyes. Some patients who are happy with their procedure commented that before the procedure, they hated to look at pictures of themselves. They felt like they always looked tired. However, they finally reached a point where they decided that they needed to take care of some things. They wanted to make themselves happy with the way they looked.
Following the procedure, it may be recommended that you use a little ice in order to keep the swelling down. Usually, the first day after the procedure is the most uncomfortable.
One comment that patients have is that after the procedure, especially that first night, they find it difficult to sleep because of the discomfort of needing to sleep in a new position in order to protect their eyes as they heal. However, as the healing process continues, they are able to return back to their normal sleeping patterns.
There are a lot of reasons why patients choose to get eyelid surgery. However, the results for all of them are the same. These can include an improved appearance, improved confidence, and a face that reflects on the outside how they feel on the inside.
