The eyes are without a doubt the most noticeable feature of a person’s face. It is well-said that they are like the windows to the soul. The skin around the eyes is very thin and sensitive to the world around us. One of the most noticeable signs of age is the condition of the area around the eyes. Sagging, drooping eyelids with bags and lines under the eyes are very common, but that doesn’t mean we have to like them. If you want to rejuvenate your appearance, looking younger, happier and more alert, then one of the best ways to do just that is to get a blepharoplasty surgery.
What Is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is a type of cosmetic surgery that is done on the area around the eyes, particularly the eyelids. During this surgical procedure, the skin and eyelids will be lifted up and smoothed out. This eliminates bags, lines and sagging, giving your eyes a younger and more rested appearance. You will be amazed at what a positive difference eyelid surgery can make in your appearance.
Why Is Blepharoplasty Needed?
The skin contains a substance called collagen, which gives it its firm texture. During the aging process, the amount of collagen the skin produces gradually decreases. This makes the skin start to sag and develop creases more quickly. Factors such as smoking, stress, insufficient rest, not drinking enough water and disease can accelerate this process. Since the skin around the eyes is so much thinner than the rest of the skin, the loss of collagen is especially noticeable here. Drooping eyelids not only make you look older and give you a tired and sad or angry appearance, but they can also get to the point where they are obstructing your vision. After getting blepharoplasty, you will notice that not only do you look great, but you can see better!
