The Benefits of Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Eyelid surgery, medically referred to as blepharoplasty, is done for a variety of reasons. This procedure is mainly performed for aesthetic appeal, but can also address physical effects and concerns from drooping or sagging eyelids. No matter the patient’s desire (or need) for eyelid surgery, the benefits are substantial. Below we have laid out a few of the benefits of eyelid surgery.

Look Years Younger

When eyelids begin to droop and sag, primarily due to age, the effect is an older or more tired appearance. The weakened muscles create wrinkles and make eyes appear smaller and even partially closed depending on the severity of the sagging. This results in a more “mature” look and can become more noticeable over time. Correcting this condition will open your eyes, making your face look uplifted and youthful. The procedure can take years off your appearance, even without any other work done to your face.

Better Makeup Application

It can be challenging to apply makeup when your eyelids are not quite cooperating. The sagginess and droopiness can make it difficult to put on makeup as intended. The creases and fine lines can cause eyeshadow to settle in the wrong places. Mascara can wind up on the skin of your eyelids and eyeliner may look messy, uneven, and unnatural. When eyelid surgery is complete, makeup is able to be applied effortlessly and may even stay on longer.

Eliminate Physical Issues

Beauty benefits aside, eyelid surgery can help people with more extreme issues such as sight impairment and discomfort. When sagging and drooping eyelids affect everyday tasks and to-dos, beauty becomes a secondary perk. The lift from eyelid surgery can help alleviate this problem, allowing for better visibility and a return to normal functionality.

If you are over 35 years of age or have a genetic predisposition to droopy, sagging eyelids, you may be a good candidate for eyelid surgery. The benefits are plentiful and the results can be remarkable. Contact Gulf Coast Facial Plastics to schedule a consultation today!
