Blepharoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure performed on your eyelids. It’s primarily used to lift up drooping upper eyelids that can give your face a sleepy look, as well as to remove excess skin and fat from around your eyes. Eyelid surgery is also useful for removing bags and circles from under your eyes, which are problem areas for many men and women.
The good news about blepharoplasty is that we can perform the procedure right in our office, and once we’re done, you can go home soon after. Learn more about the benefits of eyelid surgery from the dedicated surgeons at MP Plastic Surgery.
Blepharoplasty: The Fountain of Youth?
There are three ways that blepharoplasty can help you look younger.
#1 Smooths Delicate Eyelid Skin
The skin around your eyes is some of the most delicate and fragile skin on your body. This skin becomes even more delicate as you age, and the amount of collagen in your body declines. Collagen is what gives your skin its taut youthful appearance. Fortunately, blepharoplasty can tighten and smooth this fragile skin, giving it a dramatically more vibrant and youthful appearance. However, because it is only done around the corners of your eyes, the results are subtle. You don’t have to worry about it looking unnaturally stretched.
#2 Removes Excess Bags
After a bad night of sleep, you may notice bags or bruising under and around your eyes. As you age, these bags may become even more pronounced. For many people, they may not ever go away, even when you catch up on sleep. However, by removing excess skin under your eyes, the appearance of bags may decline. This can help you look more well-rested and also dramatically younger.
#3 Reverses Upper Eyelid Drooping
As we age, our upper eyelids slowly start to droop. This drooping undoubtedly ages our faces, and it can be very noticeable. Fortunately, blepharoplasty is great at reversing this drooping, and it subtly opens up your eye shape. This makes you look more awake and alert, and it also gives off the impression that you are younger.
Although there is no guarantee about how much younger you will look after blepharoplasty, many of our clients comment that they feel like they look ten years younger after the procedure. In fact, this anti-aging effect is seen in even our younger patients. Because it is minimally invasive, you don’t need to wait to have it until wrinkles are deeply etched in. As a result, many of our patients undergo blepharoplasty in their 30s and 40s.
