4 Reasons why you should consider getting eyelid surgery

The objective of eyelid surgery is to eliminate excess skin and muscle from both the upper and lower eyelids. In addition, around your eyes contain fatty tissues that can be selectively removed to reduce the look of bagginess.

Eyelid surgery tightens and eliminates excess skin around the eyes. Hence, it provides a younger and rejuvenated look.

Make eyes look more open and refreshed

Eyelid Surgery removes sagging skin and can give a more youthful appearance.  The surgical procedure will tighten the skin around your eyes, resulting in a brighter appearance and relieve some of the signs of aging.


Improve sight

Due to having extra skin, it can weigh down your eyelids and create difficulty seeing. If you have hooding of your upper eyelids, eyelid surgery can improve your sight. 


Procedure performed under local anesthesia

Surgeons can perform the surgical procedure in their office using local anesthesia. During the procedure, the surgeon will mark the natural crease in your eyelids and extract excessive skin. Furthermore, the surgical procedure takes less than two hours to complete.


Eyelid surgery is long-lasting

Common that surgery on the upper eyelid lasts five to seven years. In contrast, surgery performed on the lower eyelid rarely needs to be repeated.

Customized Eyelid Procedure

The surgical procedure is customized for every patient, depending on your particular needs.  It can be performed alone involving upper, lower, or both eyelid regions. Certainly, can be done in conjunction with other surgical procedures of the eye, face, brow, or nose. If you have looseness between the lower eyelid and the eyeball, consideration for tightening of the lower eyelid (canthoplasty/canthopexy) at the time of blepharoplasty may be recommended. Above all, eyelid surgery cannot stop the process of aging. It can, however, diminish the look of loose skin and bagginess in the eyelid region.
