Blepharoplasty is a procedure that removes excess skin from the upper and lower eyelids. Loose skin from the upper eyelids is removed, and bagginess from the lower eyelids is reduced. It's also referred to as an eyelift.

What Is the Purpose of Blepharoplasty or Eyelift?

Cosmetic surgery is the most common reason for this procedure. It's also a good way to improve vision in older people who have sagging upper eyelids that obstruct vision. Although Dark circles under the eyes, crow's feet, and other facial wrinkles cannot be removed with an eye lift. It's frequently combined with other treatments like laser resurfacing, filler injections, or forehead lifts.

Read these top 5 reasons to get an eyelift:

  1. You appear tired even when you are not

Gravity, aging's worst enemy, can cause your eyelids to droop. This, combined with wrinkles and puffiness around the eyes, can make you appear tired and older. In this particular instance, an upper eye lift will lift your eyelids so they don't droop, while the lower eyelid lift will mellow out fine lines and decrease swelling and inflammation, allowing you to look as youthful as you feel.

  1. You are not able to see as clearly as you once could

Once you begin to lose your vision, it may have little to do with your eyes. It is possible that your eyelids are to blame. They can create lids over your eyes when they droop, reducing your peripheral vision. This is especially problematic when driving or reading. An upper eye lift can help you regain your youthful look and foresight.

  1. The shape between your upper and lower eyelids has vanished

You may have noticed that applying eye makeup isn't as simple as it once was. The effects of gravity have taken their toll once more, and your eyelid crease appears to have vanished. Your crease is actually hidden beneath excess tissue and fat that is weighing down your eyelids. Your crease can be revealed with an upper eye lift, which pulls your eyelids up toward your forehead. A double eye lift, which generates a crease and a larger, wider eye, maybe the best option in some cases.

  1. Your eyes are irritated by allergies

Allergies can lead to chronic puffiness in the eyes. They could also end up causing dark circles under your eyes that don't seem to go away no matter how much bedtime you get. The puffy swelling around your eyes, as well as the dark circles, can be removed with an eye lift. Although you may continue to suffer from allergic rhinitis, your eyes will no longer be affected.

  1. You simply want to treat yourselves with something pleasant

A large percentage of patients who come into my office seeking blepharoplasty or eyelift are simply looking for a way to boost their self-esteem. A new job, relationship, or stage of life may have prompted you to want to look as fresh-faced and youthful as you feel. An eyelift can improve your self-esteem and give you a more youthful appearance.

Wrapping up

Individuals who are in a good health and have a reasonable idea of what they want are the best candidates for an eyelift. Most people have the surgery when they are 35 years old or older, but if you have a family history of droopy or baggy eyelids, you may want to have it done sooner.

Eyelift surgery can help you look better and feel more confident. Nevertheless, it is possible that it will not give you your desired look or alter your facial structure. Consider your objectives and discuss them with your surgeon before deciding to have surgery.
