Eyelid Surgery Can Result In A Younger Look -- And Improved Vision

An eye lift or eyelid surgery, which is also known as blepharoplasty, is a procedure that helps eliminate bags under your eyes and eyelid sagging to result in a more youthful, rested appearance. You can have eyelid surgery done on your upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, depending on how you want to enhance and liven up your appearance. If sagging, dropping eyelids are causing you to experience problems with your vision, an eye lift can even help correct problems with obstructed field of view.

Men and women often choose to undergo an eye lift to remove and tighten excess skin that resides on their eyelids, and to help reverse signs of aging. Eye lifts can be done for cosmetic or medical reasons, and can provide you with a boost in self-esteem and confidence, as well as improve the look of your eyebrows and overall brow region. Throughout the aging process, your eyelid skin will stretch -- resulting in weakened muscles and fat pockets that become more prominent over time. If you suffer from eye allergies or edema, having puffy eyes can even accentuate the sagging skin on your eyelids.

If drooping, saggy eyelids are affecting your vision, you can meet with your cosmetic surgeon to discuss whether blepharoplasty can be performed for medical reasons in addition to cosmetic reasons. Failure to correct drooping eyelids can result in problems with driving and performing other visual tasks, and if bulging and drooping on your eyelids is severe enough, you may even experience problems with wearing glasses and contact lenses.

Functional, or medical eyelid surgery may be required if your eyes and eyelids become irritated as a result of having excess folds of eyelid skin rubbing together, or if you experience strain and discomfort in your forehead as a result of working to lift sagging skin in your eyelids throughout the course of the day.

The results produced by an eye lift can often last up to 10 years if you practice good nutrition and fitness habits. However, since aging is a natural part of life, you may want to consider having another eyelid surgery down the road if your eyelids once again begin to sag.
