HOUSTON, TX, January 09, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- An eyelid lift, also known as "blepharoplasty", is a surgical procedure which removes excess fat and skin from the area around your eyes to provide you with a refreshed, renewed, and more alert appearance. As you age, your eyelids can begin to droop. In addition, bags, redness, and loose skin may begin to appear below your eyes. The end result can be a tired and worn out look that leaves you feeling self-conscious and less attractive. A board-certified facial plastic surgeon can use an eyelid lift alone or with other facial rejuvenation procedures to provide you with a much younger and refreshed look.
The Benefits of Eyelid Surgery
The obvious benefit of eyelid surgery is its ability to provide you with a more attractive appearance around your eyes. By removing excess skin that obscures the upper eyelid as well as puffiness and fine lines and wrinkles below and around your eyes, eyelid surgery can help accentuate your natural beauty. By allowing the natural shape, size, and shine of your eyes to become more apparent, self-confidence and feelings of appeal may also increase.
In addition to having aesthetic and potential emotional benefits, eyelid surgery offers functional benefits as well. Peripheral vision can become obscured by droopy eyelids or excess sagging skin. By removing these problems, your vision can be improved. Better yet, if you are seeking eyelid surgery to help improve your vision, a simple vision field test may be sufficient to compel your insurance to cover it as a necessary surgery. Your plastic surgeon will be able to advise you if this might be an option.
Combining Cosmetic Procedures
It is not uncommon for people to combine eyelid surgery with one or more facial rejuvenation procedures. The signs of aging can affect every area of your face. An experienced plastic surgeon will carefully evaluate all of your facial features and help you determine if combining procedures will best help you meet your goals.
Common combinations with eyelid surgery include other surgical procedures such as:
- A brow lift to raise drooping eyebrows and eliminate wrinkles from the forehead
- A facelift to eliminate loose, sagging skin from the neck, jowls, and cheeks
- Facial liposuction to remove excess fat from your cheeks, chin, and jawline
Your plastic surgeon may also recommend you combine your eyelid surgery with nonsurgical procedures such as injectable fillers or BOTOX Cosmetic. The exact combination of procedures that will most benefit you will be determined after your plastic surgeon has had a chance to fully evaluate your face, the condition of your skin, and your medical history.
It has been said that your eyes are the window to your soul. If the blinds are starting to close on your windows, or imperfections are distracting from their appeal, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon can help you open them back up to reveal the natural beauty you already possess.
