The eyelids are the first area to show signs of ageing. If you’re considering eyelid surgery, here are four reasons why choosing the procedure could be the best decision you make.
- You’ll appear younger
When we age, the area around the eyes and eyelids begin to wrinkle and droop, due to excess skin, loosened tissue and weakened muscles. Eyelid surgery removes excess tissue and fat, tightens the remaining tissue by lifting it, and increases volume around the area through the use of dermal fillers.
- Your skin will appear smoother
A droopy brow, rather like a curtain rod which has fallen down, can affect the youthful appearance of the eye area. If your surgeon determines excessive eyelid skin is due to an eyebrow sag, then they may also lift this area with a small incision.
- Your vision may improve
Sagging eyelid skin can affect your sight, as the excess skin may influence the amount you can open your eyes. By removing excess fat, skin or lifting a droopy brow through the tightening of the muscle and ligaments around the eyes, you’ll be able to open your eyes wider and have a less obstructed view.
- Your skin will look brighter
Dark bags around the eyes can be ageing and give you a tired, stressed appearance. Dark circles under and around the eyes are caused by loss of soft tissue volume of the area under the eye, an excess of eyelid fat (which gives a bulging appearance), thinning skin, and sagging of skin and support structures, causing the darker colour. Eyelid surgery can remove excess skin and refine other sagging support tissue, improving that tired, dull looking skin.
