Your eyes make quite a first impression when someone looks at you. If drooping or sagging is occurring, you appear old and tired. Problems with the upper and lower lids affect countless adults in Chicago and elsewhere, but the remedy is a rather simple one. Blepharoplasty surgery is relatively easy to perform, and it can smooth away wrinkles, reduce puffiness, and refresh the overall appearance of your eyes.
Smoothing the lid skin is performed in much the same way as correcting folds and sags on the face. Eyelid surgery is a lot like a facelift, but it’s performed on a much smaller scale. If you’re tired of appearing old and unhealthy because of the drooping and sagging of your eyelid skin, you’ll find the following information quite helpful.
What Blepharoplasty Corrects
If you’re in overall good health and have no diagnosed problems with the muscles that surround the eyes, you may be an ideal candidate for this surgical procedure. Common problems with the upper lids include puffiness due to a buildup of fat, sagging or relaxation of the lid skin that causes a lowering of the lash line, and fine wrinkles. The lower lids can appear droopy as well. The sagging causes a darkened appearance of the skin below the lower lashes, and here is where a multitude of tiny wrinkles will form. The sagging of the lower lid can alter the natural contour lines of the upper perimeter of the lid, and this causes too much of the eyeball white to show.
Blepharoplasty surgery in Chicago can correct all of these problems. Properly performed, the surgery results in a more attentive, youthful posture to the eyes, and this really enhances your overall appearance.
