While eyelid surgery, commonly referred to as blepharoplasty, is often performed on older patients who want to rejuvenate their eyes, it can offer other incredible benefits to almost anyone. But before we delve into the benefits of this surgery, it is important to first understand how it is performed. In upper eyelid surgery, excess skin is typically removed. The muscles can be tightened to correct lid ptosis, where the upper lid droops, sometimes to the point that it interferes with vision. Lower eyelid surgery, meanwhile, typically removes excess fat padding. Here are a few additional benefits of eyelid surgery.
This surgery can correct the hooding excess skin that interferes with your vision. According to one report, patients reported visual improvements and comfort following their upper eyelid surgery for lid ptosis.
Elimination of Under-Eye Bags
If you have under-eye bags due to excess fat, no amount of sleep can improve this aesthetic issue that mostly stems from aging and hereditary predisposition. Dr. Chernoff in Santa Rosa improves the appearance of under-eye bags by removing a small amount of fat and/or redistributing the existing fat to create a smooth lid-cheek transition, which is the hallmark of a youthful face. This conservative approach provides a more natural result than the complete or aggressive removal of fat.
A More Youthful Visage
The eyes are not just the windows to your soul; they also have a significant impact on your perceived age and attractiveness. In fact, a 2015 study conducted by researchers at Georgetown University has shown that patients who have had eyelid surgery and facelifts scored the highest in the personality trait assessments that included their perceived attractiveness and femininity.
Improved Techniques and New Technologies
Recent advancements in eyelid surgery have improved patient safety and have promoted natural-looking results and shorter downtimes.
