Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a great option for rejuvenating tired, aged eyes. As with all cosmetic procedures, timing is important. If you have been considering eyelid surgery but have been putting it off, Mr Miles Banwell of Attune Clinic shares four signs it’s time to schedule surgery.
You See the Telltale Signs of Aging
When you look in the mirror, what do you see? If the answer is tired, puffy or simply older-looking eyes that make you appear exhausted even after a good night’s rest, then it’s time to consider surgical intervention. Eyelid surgery is a more effective and long-lasting solution than any night cream or anti-aging serum on the market. The procedure can address any of the following aging signs:
- Loose, sagging skin on the upper eyelids that may hide the natural fold of the upper eyelid and/or hang over the upper lash line
- Puffy eyelids caused by excessive or displaced fat deposits
- Loose, hanging skin on the lower eyelids
- Wrinkles and fine wrinkles on the lower eyelids
Your Vision Is Obstructed
Do you have trouble seeing clearly because of heavy, sagging skin and tissue on the upper eyelids? Eyelid surgery can improve the line of sight by lifting the skin and tissue on upper eyelids to a higher and more natural-looking position. After surgery, the eyes feel lighter and less constricted.
You Can Commit to the Recovery
The recovery period plays an important role in the success of eyelid surgery. You must be able to take time off work and your normal routine in order to allow your body to heal and reduce the risk of complications. You will need to rest with your head elevated as much as possible. Be advised that your mobility will be limited and you will not be able to exercise or socialize for the first few days of recovery. When scheduling eyelid surgery, be sure to factor in the recovery period and the amount of time your surgeon recommends you take off from work.
You Have Found the Right Surgeon
Eyelid surgery is a serious undertaking and it’s worth postponing the procedure until you feel completely confident in your choice of plastic surgeon. You may need to meet with several plastic surgeons before making a final decision. Be sure to research the procedure and the surgeons’ qualifications beforehand so you can ask questions during your consultations. Browsing through a surgeon’s before-and-after gallery can help you gauge his or her technical expertise and skill as well as the potential results.
