Eyes are commonly said to be the windows to the soul. They are integral to forming facial expressions and key for successful social interactions. They are noticed, observed, and remembered by others.
If the skin around the eyes is loose, baggy, and bulging, the eyes can look puffy and tired. This can make a person feel embarrassed and self-conscious. Puffy eyes can be seen as a signal to improve one’s lifestyle and perhaps take better care of one’s health and appearance. They give an impression of fatigue, carelessness, sickness, or stress. Puffy eyes can also be related to excessive consumption of alcohol.
Puffy eyes are often unrelated to all of these factors and instead simply form as a result of the aging process. Your puffy eyes deserve a solution. Home remedies take a long time and do not guarantee desired results. For permanent correction of puffy eyes, the answer lies in the eyelid lift procedure.
What Is the Eyelid Lift?
The eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty surgery, is the surgical removal of excess tissue from the eyelids, giving the eyes a more youthful appearance. The procedure can be performed on the upper lids, the lower lids, or both. It can correct puffy eyelids, undereye bags, sagging eyelids, and wrinkles.
It is a relatively minor cosmetic surgery and may also be combined with other procedures to create more comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
The Advantages of an Eyelid Lift
• An Immediate Solution – The results of an eyelid lift are immediately apparent, so you will not have to wait for any treatment to take effect.
• Minor Surgery with Lasting Results – Because an eyelid lift isn’t a major invasive procedure, you won’t be sidelined from your everyday life for a long period of time. You can enjoy long-lasting correction of eyelid issues with this procedure.
• Improved Peripheral Vision – Sagging upper eyelids can hinder peripheral vision and sensory perception. An eyelid lift helps solve this functional problem.
What One Should Know
One must be absolutely certain that eyelid surgery is right for them before coming in for this procedure. Though eyelid surgery is a minor procedure, the eyes are sensitive sensory organs, so due care and informed judgment is a must. With the expert guidance of an able surgeon, the outcomes can be quite beneficiary.
The patient must follow the doctor’s pre-operative and post-operative instructions and precautions, which may include the use of relief items such as gel packs, artificial tears, and gauze. Such items are best kept at home for prescribed use after surgery. Temporary side-effects from the procedure may include swelling, irritation, sensitivity, and bruising.
