Your eyes are often one of the first areas on your face that show your age. They start to look tired no matter what time of day it is. That fatigued appearance makes some individuals look even older than they are. If you want to do something to restore your facial features to their younger look, eyelid surgery, otherwise known as blepharoplasty, might be an option for you.
Eyelid surgery is one of the most effective facial rejuvenation treatments on the market today. It can take years off a face and give your appearance a dramatic impact. Even if you feel you need blepharoplasty surgery, you may not be a good candidate. The ideal candidate should be in overall good health and should not have an eye infection. The right person also needs to have realistic expectations about the surgery and the outcome from the procedure.
You might be a good candidate for blepharoplasty if you show certain signs of aging around the eyes as well. Those signs include fat deposits on the lower eyelid that makes the skin appear puffy, hollow areas underneath the eye that leave dark bags, hanging skin on the lower or upper eyelid, and droopy upper eyelids.
Depending on the unique issues you have, you may need a combination of procedures to achieve the results you desire. Some of the issues can be addressed with blepharoplasty surgery alone while others may also need a brow lift.
