Have you noticed that your eyelids have become droopy as you age? Don’t worry, blepharoplasty can help. Blepharoplasty is the term for eyelid surgery. This surgery can be done on one or both eyelids by removing excess skin for a younger, more youthful appearance. You probably don’t even realize how much this excess skin might be aging you!
Blepharoplasty is very safe and can produce incredible results. Dr. Watterson uses a special technique called “transconjunctival lower lid blepharoplasty” paired together with a skin pinch to remove extra skin. He also will tighten underlying muscles. The bags below your eyes can also be improved during this process.
What Are The Benefits Of Blepharoplasty?
Eyes are the window to the soul, and if your eyelids are covering your eyes that’s probably not a very good sign, right? Because the skin around our eyes is so thin, it can easily begin to sag due to aging and sun exposure over the years. In addition to making you look older, those sagging bags can also make you look perma-tired or sleepy.
The great thing about blepharoplasty is that the results are subtle yet impactful. Most people won’t notice a significant change in your appearance other than looking well-rested and rejuvenated.
Am I A Good Candidate For Eyelid Surgery?
If you’ve noticed extra skin on your upper eyelids or bags under your lower lids, you’re likely a good candidate for this surgery. If you grew up living in Utah or other high altitude and gotten plenty of sunshine over the years, then you’re even more qualified! All of that time spent outdoors enjoying the sunshine can add more age to your eyes.
This surgery is also equally popular with men as it is with women. That’s because these issues also affect men and as stated above, the fix can be so subtle but powerful that it’s a no-brainer for both sexes to try it out. Men especially like this procedure to help them stay looking younger to be more competitive in the business world.
