I passed my friend in the store one day, and we stopped to chat. She still had her sunglasses on while we were inside the store. I didn’t want to pry, but then she told me she was wearing her glass because she had just had surgery on her eyelids and didn’t want people to see the bruises. She took off her glasses and showed me her eyes. I couldn’t even tell she had the bruises. She said her eye doctor had been telling her for years that she should have her eyelids lifted, and she finally did. Now, she could see again.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelids. You can elect to have the surgery for either functional or cosmetic reasons. The surgery is done on an outpatient basis often using local anesthetics with sedation.
Like my friend in the grocery store, in Lubbock plastic surgery on your eyelids may be right for you. Here are a few of the benefits of this eyelid surgery:
Apart from cosmetic results, improved eyesight may be reason alone to pursue an eyelid lift. Significant drooping of the upper eyelid can impair vision. A slight lift of the brow and upper lid can remove the extra skin which causes the droop. Not only can this improve your line of sight, but some patients find that this correction relieves a strain in the brow muscles from constantly trying to raise the upper lid.
Bags and lines
By lifting the upper and lower lids, early signs of aging are corrected. Fine lines and bags around the eyes give a fatigued look even when you are well rested. To enhance the results of this lift, you can also include a skin rejuvenation treatment like a chemical skin peel or medical facial to provide additional smoothing of the lines or to reduce the visibility of dark circles.
