The Best Benefits of Eyelid Surgery
February 13, 2018
Eyelid surgery (a.k.a., blepharoplasty) is an extremely popular plastic surgery procedure. Last year, hundreds of thousands of people had eyelid surgery to address signs of aging in the eyes and enjoy a refreshed appearance.
In this post, top facial plastic surgeon Rafael Cabrera of the Plastic Surgery Specialists of Boca Raton sheds light on the most important benefits of eyelid surgery.
A Refreshed Eye Appearance
Most eyelid surgery candidates usually complain that their eyes look tired, sad or angry because of excess skin, displaced fat, wrinkles and other signs of aging. These imperfections can cause the eyes to look distracting or out of harmony with an otherwise youthful looking face. Eyelid surgery is designed to soften the effects of aging and create a youthful and rejuvenated eyelid appearance that complements the rest of the face.
Another notable benefit of eyelid surgery is that it corrects excessively droopy lids that may impair vision. Some eyelid surgery candidates have loose, saggy skin on the upper lids that droops over the lashline and obstructs vision. They may be accustomed to tilting their chins up in order to see straight ahead, or experience discomfort or eye strain because of the upper lids.
During eyelid surgery, Dr. Cabrera trims excess skin and tightens the remaining skin of the lid to clear the line of sight for better vision. This is extremely helpful for patients that struggle to read or drive because of saggy lids, and those that find their limited vision prevents them from living the active lifestyle they love.
Improves Self-Esteem and Confidence
The physical improvements of eyelid surgery often lead to psychological improvements. Transforming the eyes can provide patients with a much-needed boost in confidence and self-esteem. Patients that were once self-conscious or embarrassed by tired or sad looking eyes can enjoy a more attractive and rested appearance.
Easily Combined with Other Procedures
Many eyelid surgery patients opt to combine blepharoplasty with another facial procedure like facelift or brow lift for even more powerful results. Not only does this enhance the rejuvenating effects of surgery, it can also cut down on surgical downtime and reduce overall costs.
