Everyone has a different reason for wanting an eyelid lift, ranging from looking younger to improving their eyesight. At Ethos Medical Group in Orange, California, our expert team offers this minor surgical procedure to patients in our office under local anesthesia. In a matter of hours, we can take years off your appearance and help boost your confidence at work and in social settings. Here are the top five reasons to consider blepharoplasty.
1. Remove excess skin to improve eyesight
Sometimes, we perform a blepharoplasty on patients who have excess skin around their eyes that impairs their vision. For example, eyelid skin can droop and block the peripheral vision, making it hard to drive a car, or even read a book or magazine.
2. Achieve a more youthful appearance
Truth be told, lotions and potions can’t correct drooping and sagging skin around your eyes. Only surgery can do that. So, whether you need minor surgery on your upper or lower eyelid, or a combination of both, blepharoplasty can help you regain your youthful appearance.
3. Look more alert and well-rested
Yes, you can try tea bags, cucumbers, and face masks, but the effects of these beauty tricks are only temporary. Getting extra sleep may help, too. But if the puffiness or bags under your eyes never seem to go away despite your best efforts, it may be time to consider a little nip and tuck. You’ll be amazed at how much better you’ll look.
4. Get rid of puffy under-eye bags
The only way to get rid of under-eye bags for good is to get a lower eyelid lift. And, if the bags under your eyes are starting to look more like suitcases, it may be time to come in for a consultation.
5. Put eye makeup on more easily
If you previously had a crease in your eyelids, you may notice that it’s now gone. That is because the weight of your eyelids has covered it, creating a droopy effect. Not having a crease may make it harder to put on makeup and may also hide your eyelashes. If this bothers you, an upper eyelid lift can help.
If you can relate to any of these five reasons mentioned above, you might consider getting a blepharoplasty.
