When you look in the mirror, do you like what you see looking back at you? Is the face looking back at you an accurate reflection of how you feel about yourself and about the world? Some individuals who are battling with droopy eyelids or with darkened bags underneath their eyes feel like their face is giving the world an incorrect impression of them. When a person has baggy eyelids or dark circles underneath their eyes, they look tired, stressed, haggard and worn out.
All of these conditions can have a negative impact on your personal and business life. If you are dating or looking for Mr. or Mrs. Right, you understand how important looking young and vibrant is to successfully finding that special someone. The same is true in the world of business. The current business market is extremely competitive. It is full of young, driven, focused individuals who are looking to get ahead by any means possible.
If you look tired, worn out or stressed, finding employment may be difficult. If you are employed, it is likely that your employer will overlook you for a promotion if they feel that you are already so stressed that you cannot handle more responsibility.
All of these are reasons why many people look to eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty. Eyelid surgery works to remove excess skin, muscle and fat from both the upper and lower eyelids, and tighten the underlying muscle. The result is that you have a more vibrant, energetic appearance.
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure. It is performed not because it is medically necessary, but instead because a person wants to improve their appearance. Individuals who opt for the surgery do so after noticing that their eyelids are baggy and droopy. While it is mainly a cosmetic procedure, poor vision due to drooping eyelids can also be improved through blepharoplasty.
Drooping occurs because the eyelid muscles begin to weaken. The skin around the eyelids starts to stretch and fat pockets in the eye become more prevalent. This can make you look prematurely old and very tired.
So who are good candidates for blepharoplasty? The best way to determine this is by visiting our cosmetic surgeon. He will look at your eyes and determine if eyelid surgery is right for you. In some cases, droopy eyelids come as a result of sagging forehead muscles, so our cosmetic surgeon may recommend that you get a forehead lift as opposed to an eyelid lift.
Good candidates for blepharoplasty are individuals who have a clear understanding of what the surgery can and cannot do for them. Getting an eyelid lift is not going to make you a different person. It is simply going to correct one problem that is affecting your face. It is important that any potential eyelid surgery candidates be in good health. It is a surgical procedure, so the healthier you are, the faster and more complete your recovery process will be.
If you are sick of people asking you if you are tired all the time and if you feel that your eyelids are saggy and puffy, then blepharoplasty may be the right option for you.
