When performed by a board-certified and skilled plastic surgeon, eyelid surgery can achieve positive, life-changing results. If you are unsure whether eyelid surgery is right for you, consider the following ways the procedure can potentially improve your quality of life.
A Younger-Looking Appearance
The majority of eyelid surgery patients have the same general concerns: sagging upper eyelids and/or puffy lower eyelids that make them look tired, worn out or older. Eyelid surgery removes excess skin and tissue and/or lifts and tightens drooping skin from the upper eyelids to make the eyes look more vibrant. The procedure can also remove excess skin and fat from the lower eyelids to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or dark circles underneath the eyes. Following eyelid surgery, patients are able to enjoy a vibrant, fresh facial appearance that matches their mood. Depending on their concerns and goals, some patients choose to combine eyelid surgery with another plastic surgery procedure such as facelift or brow lift, which only enhances their facial rejuvenation results.
Heavy, sagging eyelids that droop below the eyelashes can interfere with the line of sight. Vision is obstructed while it becomes extremely difficult to open the eyes properly. For these reasons, many patients choose to undergo eyelid surgery. By removing excess tissue and fat around the upper eyes and repositioning the eyelid skin, patients are able to open the eyes with ease. Following the procedure, many of Dr. Hause’s patients say that everyday activities like driving and reading are easier and more enjoyable.
Are you embarrassed by sagging eyelids or unsightly under-eye bags? Do you feel you look older or more tired than what you really are? Your facial appearance directly affects the way you feel about yourself. Eyelid surgery can take years off your face and gives you a chance to put your best face forward. Your refreshed appearance will only help you feel more confident in the way you look and approach others.
