People notice our eyes as one of the first features they notice about us. Unfortunately, our eyelids begin to sag and droop as we age. This makes us appear tired, bored, or ill. Continue reading to learn which questions to ask when considering Blepharoplasty surgery or eyelid lift procedure.
Will I Need Surgery on My Upper or Lower Eyelids?
Whether you require upper or lower eyelid surgery, or both, is entirely dependent on your cosmetic goals. Upper eyelid surgery is used to remove excess skin, reposition fat pads, and tighten visibly drooping muscles. Lower eyelid surgery is used to reduce the appearance of bags beneath your eyes and achieve a more youthful, lifted appearance.
Will My Scars Be Visible?
One of the benefits of eyelid surgery is that there will be no visible scars. Scars are usually concealed by the natural creases of your eyelids.
Is Eyelid Surgery Going to Help My Sagging Brows?
Unfortunately, eyelid surgery only treats the eyelids. However, it is very common for people who have drooping eyelids to also have sagging brows. If this describes you and you want to lift your sagging brows, we recommend a brow lift. This procedure is commonly referred to as a forehead lift. To achieve a smooth, wrinkle-free forehead, it tightens and gently repositions the underlying tissues.
What Other Procedures Are Commonly Involved in Eyelid Surgery?
Aside from a brow lift, patients frequently combine eyelid surgery with a facelift. This treatment targets ageing signs from the middle of the face to the neck.
If you want to address other signs of ageing in addition to drooping eyelids but do not want to combine two procedures, dermal fillers or neuromodulators are excellent options. They add volume to the face for a period of nine to twelve months and also have following benefits.
- Removing fine lines and wrinkles
- Providing structural support and lifting drooping areas
- Adding volume to areas that appear hollow, sunken, thin, or flat
Radiesse, Juvéderm, and Restylane are some dermal fillers. Xeomin and Botox are two examples of neuromodulators.
Are you sure I'm the right person for the job?
Your cosmetic surgeon will help you make the right decision. In general, the following people are good candidates for eyelid surgery:
- You must not smoke.
- Are in generally good health
- There is no active skin infection on the eyelid.
- Want to get rid of hooded eyelids
- You want to get rid of under-eye puffiness or drooping lower eyelid skin
- Excessive or sagging upper eyelid skin
