There are three features on your face that have the largest impact on your appearance. These are your eyes, your nose and your mouth. Of all of these features, it is your eyes that most affect the way you appear. People make instant judgments about you based on your eyes. They will determine if you are energetic, tired, angry, happy, sick or in good health solely by looking at your eyes. For this reason, it makes sense that one of the first places where people ask for work to be done on their face is around the eyes.
If you have under eye bags or if your eyelids are sagging, your eyes might be transmitting the wrong message about you. They could make it seem as if you are always tired, worn out or frustrated. An eyelid lift, which is a relatively minor cosmetic surgery, has the ability to completely refresh the way your face looks. You may walk away from this procedure looking like you are years younger.
The surgery is performed with the goal of removing excess skin and fat pockets from underneath your lower or upper eyelids. To get the best result from this procedure, many people opt to combine eyelid surgery with a brow lift as well as some BOTOX® to address dynamic wrinkles.
Although an eyelid lift is a powerful procedure, not every single person is a candidate for the procedure. A good candidate is going to have the procedure to remove under eye bags, improve vision that is being blocked by excessive fatty skin and/or correct puffy eyelids.
A good candidate for an eyelid lift should also be at least 18 years of age. The average age for candidates is around 35. However, individuals who have a family history of droopy or baggy eyelids might want to have the procedure performed when they are younger.
As with any medical procedure, you need to be in good health to have the best outcome. The best candidates also understand what the procedure can do for them. They realize that they will walk out of the procedure looking rejuvenated, but they will walk out being the same person. Cosmetic surgery does not change who you are, it just allows you to become the best version of yourself possible.
