Improve your Look and your Vision with Blepharoplasty
- Posted on: Mar 23 2016
A friendly smile is one of the primary ways we greet others. However, it is often the eyes that have the biggest impact on first impressions. When we interact at work and in social situations, facial expressions are a natural and vital part of communication. While the eyelids may seem like a minor feature compared to others, studies have shown that problems around the eyes can lead to misinterpretation of facial expressions, inhibiting optimal interpersonal relationships. Festoons, or fatty deposits on the upper or lower lids, are a common problem for adults.
Heavy, droopy, and saggy eyelids pose a significant cosmetic concern. Depending on the severity, excess fat on the upper lid can also affect vision. People with puffiness and bags around the eyes seem older, worn down, and may even be perceived as unfriendly or angry when they are anything but! Individuals who feel stuck with excess fat and skin around the eyes may feel dissatisfied or embarrassed about their appearance. If your eyes are a problem area for you, consider how blepharoplasty can help.
The skin around the eyes changes with time, but is also affected by allergies, lifestyle habits, weight, and UV exposure. Several creams and serums have been developed, promising to tighten loose skin around the eyes. However, people with festoons may be left feeling frustrated and hopeless after trying such products. In such cases, blepharoplasty may be the best solution.
Restore Vision and Confidence with Eyelid Surgery
Blepharoplasty is a precise eyelid surgery that may be performed on the upper or the lower eyelids. Some patients need to address excess skin and fat in both areas. Using meticulous technique, the surgeon makes incisions in a hidden area, such as along the lashes, removing excess skin and fatty deposits, as needed. The result of expert care is a naturally youthful appearance and clear, crisp vision.
