Why have eyelid surgery?
As we age the eyelids stretch, skin loses elasticity, and the muscles supporting them weaken. Loose skin hangs over the upper eyelid, resulting in problems with appearance and the feeling of eyelid heaviness. Occasional fat that is normally behind the eye prolapses forward through weakened tissues and causes unsightly bulges that are quite visible in the lower lid.
Mild drooping of the upper eyelids may result in your face looking a bit tired and somewhat older. As the condition progresses, some find that it becomes difficult to apply eyeshadow. Besides making you look older, severely sagging skin around your eyes can create heaviness and reduce your peripheral vision.
Aging eyelids may be difficult to open fully, causing a person to both look and feel more tired by creating additional weight over the eyes. Sagging skin may also push on the eyelashes and turn them down towards the eye.
An eyelid lift is an amazing procedure (with a fairly short recovery time) that can take years off the overall appearance of your face and make you look and feel much younger.
If you notice that the skin of your eyelids is starting to droop and hangs down a bit more than it used to, that shadows are hard to apply or that mascara smudges, or that eyelids feel heavy and make you look older, it might be time to consider eyelid lift.
