Are you curious about cosmetic eye surgery? More and more people are using small changes to create a big aesthetic impact, and revitalizing your eye area may be exactly what you need to feel like you again.
When genetics and the unflagging passage of time conspire, we often end up with puffy, droopy eyelids that drag down our appearance as well as our spirits. While other people may not notice the change, we certainly do, and the occasional comment about our tired appearance or suggestions that we “might need a nap” don’t help matters. Refresh your outlook and the contours of your eyes with cosmetic eyelid surgery and see how your vision might change—in more ways than one.
Aesthetic procedures can often feel like a double-edged sword: you’re excited about your new rejuvenated look, but at the same time, doubts over everything from side effects to unexpected outcomes still linger. This is often especially true of cosmetic eyelid surgery. They say your eyes are the windows to your soul, so what happens if you’re stuck with curtains you just don’t love?
We all live busy lives these days. Between shuffling the kids to and from school, racing to dance class and softball practice, and trying to work a full-time job, it’s no wonder you’re exhausted. The only thing worse than feeling exhausted? Looking like you’re tired even when you’re not.
Sagging skin, extra fat deposits, and wrinkles can all make the “windows into your soul” look like they’re shrouded by curtains. The last thing you want to do is tackle your hectic schedule feeling less than optimal. With cosmetic eyelid surgery, you can revise both your eyes and your outlook on life. What could be better than that?
If you’re considering undergoing cosmetic eyelid surgery, you are most certainly not alone. In 2015, more than 200,000 people in the United States sought a surgical solution for issues such as drooping eyelids, excess eyelid skin, permanently puffy eyelids, or deep grooves that made them look tired and older than they actually were. The decision to have eyelid surgery is a deeply personal one, but who you choose to do that surgery and how you care for yourself both before and after will heavily influence your post-surgical recovery period.
Almost a quarter million people had eyelid surgery in 2014, according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, including both women and men looking for a relatively simple way to look younger and more refreshed without the need for a more major procedure. Cosmetic eyelid surgery (also called cosmetic blepharoplasty) has grown in popularity in recent years as more people have become aware of just what a profound difference the procedure can have in helping women and men with droopy upper lids, fatty or puffy lower lids, and that characteristic “hooded” or sleepy appearance that begins to develop as the tissues in and around the lids becomes lax and loose with age.
