The skin naturally loses structure and strength with age, often causing it to droop. This is especially true for the skin above the eyes. When this skin begins to sag, it can give the face a tired or sad appearance. With an eyelid lift, however, it’s possible to brighten up the eyes and as a result, rejuvenate the entire face!
Aging and its Effects on The Eyes
The natural aging process can have a significant impact on the appearance of the eyes. Since the skin around your eyes is thinner than the skin on the rest of your body, it can start to show signs of aging more quickly.
Aging can lead to skin laxity, fine lines, wrinkles, and thinning skin around the eyes. An eyelid lift can counteract these signs of aging around the eyes, and given that the eyes are the focal point of the face, refresh your entire appearance!
What Exactly is an Eyelid Lift?
An upper eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, is a straightforward cosmetic procedure that can dramatically improve the appearance of the eyes and may improve obstructed vision caused by drooping eyelids. During an eyelid lift, sagging and excess skin of the upper eyelids is removed. The remaining tissue is tightened to give the eyes a more rested look.
The upper eyelid lift procedure is performed under anesthesia. Excess skin is removed through small incisions that are hidden within the natural creases of the eyelids. The incisions are usually in the upper eyelid creases. Fine stitches are used to close the incisions, which allows for minimal scarring.
