When people look at your eyes, what do they see? Do they see something that is bright and vibrant? Or do they see a worn-out and tired appearance? If you’re dealing with an aged and exhausted look, consider blepharoplasty with our skilled plastic surgeon in Miami.
If your eyes look worn-out and tired, it’s most likely due in part to the shape of your eyelids. If your eyelids have taken on a droopy look, you may have an overall shadowed appearance. This shadowed appearance makes you look tired even when you are completely and totally rested. A lot of this has to do with the collection of fat underneath the skin of your eyelids. It also has to do with a reduction in your body’s ability to produce collagen. This causes your eyelids to lose their elasticity. As a result, your eyelids sag. The negative effects that this can have on your appearance and your self-esteem can be quite pronounced.
Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, can reverse some of the negative effects that drooping eyelids have on your appearance. When performed in the proper way, this procedure can lift your facial features, making you look and feel more vibrant. For some people in Miami, eyelid surgery has even improved their ability to see.
Blepharoplasty can smooth out the appearance of the upper and/or lower lids. If there is excess skin that is making your eyelids fold in an unnatural way, this can be removed. If you’re dealing with bags underneath your eyes, these can be corrected. Our doctor may recommend additional treatments to accompany your eyelid surgery to remove any pigmentation issues underneath your eyes.
If you have fatty deposits in your eyelids, eyelid surgery can remove or reduce these as well. When fatty deposits are removed from your lower eyelids, it makes it easier for your lower eyelids to close, thereby minimizing the amount of white seen in your eyes.
Once your eyes take on a more balanced appearance, your entire face will take on a more balanced look. You will go from looking tired and worn-out to looking vibrant, sharp, and aware. When your eyes will look brighter, and you will look more energetic and younger.
