BLEPHAROPLASTY – LEARN SOME EYE-OPENING FACTS ABOUT THIS PLASTIC SURGERY
Are you bothered with droopy eyelids or saggy bags underneath your eyes? Do you feel energetic and youthful, but your eyes start to say the opposite? Do you look in the mirror and constantly pull back saggy skin around your eyelids and wish that your appearance would reflect how you feel? And, on top of all that, are people constantly asking if you are tired?
Then Blepharoplasty or eyelid lift surgery is your answer. This popular but very effective cosmetic procedure can improve the look of your eyes and make you appear rested, refreshed, and youthful again. You can take years off your face just by lifting your eyelids. The key is to remove excess skin fat and muscles that make your eyes appear puffy and put weight on your eyelids. This procedure can also have a functional purpose – it can improve your vision by removing the skin on the eyelids that prevents you from seeing properly.
After Blepharoplasty, you will not only restore your vision but also appear younger and alert. Only a slight facial improvement can do so much for your entire appearance.
LIFT BOTH UPPER AND LOWER EYELIDS AT ONCE
This benefit of Blepharoplasty is what brings you dramatic results. The procedure can address droopy upper eyelids by removing excess skin or fatty tissue. Afterward, the loose skin is tighter, and your eyes appear more open. During the same procedure, you can get rid of bags and crepey skin underneath your eyes. Once this excess fat is removed, your eyes appear smooth and soft. When your eyes appear puffy, they cast a shadow on your undereye area and can partially contribute to dark circles. But after the under eyelid surgery, the dark circles get dramatically improved. So, your eyes appear fresh and rejuvenated on the whole. If you don’t want the surgery performed on both eyelids, you don’t have to. You can choose to have an upper eyelid lift – Blepharoplasty is fully customizable. The procedure is much shorter if you have just an upper eyelid lift. It’s all up to you and the aesthetic goals you wish to achieve.
HAVE THE BLEPHAROPLASTY SURGERY WITH JUST LOCAL ANESTHESIA
At Lucia Clinic, you can have eyelid lift surgery just with IV sedation and local anesthesia. This keeps you awake, but you feel comfortable and relaxed. You don’t feel any discomfort and can answer all your surgeon’s questions. This is a big plus – you avoid the side effects connected to general anesthesia. Also, you can recover from the surgery much faster. And since this is an outpatient procedure, you are free to go home soon after it’s over. Just make sure to have somebody drive you home. The fact that this procedure doesn’t require extended downtime makes it so popular. You can return to work after about ten days or even sooner if the surgeon gives you the green light. All the bruising and swelling are resolved until then, but if you still have minor side effects, you can easily cover them with makeup.
REJUVENATE YOUR EYELIDS WITHOUT THE FEAR OF SCARS
Even though Blepharoplasty involves making incisions in your eyelids, the risk of visible scars is minimal. This is all thanks to the highly experienced Lucia’s plastic surgeon, whose skill and expertise will put you at ease regarding the scars. The surgeon makes the incisions in the natural creases of the eyelid. As a result, the scars are strategically hidden and fade with time. So rest assured that this procedure is done with absolute precision and that your well-being is in the first place. Moreover, eyelid lift surgery carries a low risk of complications and side effects. By carefully following all the surgeon’s post-care recommendations, you can shorten your recovery period and get back to everyday life faster.
COMBINE BLEPHAROPLASTY WITH OTHER PROCEDURES FOR A FULL REJUVENATION
As we have already established, eyelid lift surgery can be a powerful ally in restoring the youthful appearance of your eyes. This anti-aging procedure is a charm against aging and droopy skin on your eyelids. But you don’t have to stop here – you can easily combine Blepharoplasty with other anti-aging treatments. Cosmetic surgeries like a brow lift or a facelift can be performed alongside an eyelid lift for even more remarkable results. Not only do you rejuvenate your eyes, but you also reduce the wrinkles on your forehead or around your eye area. The effects are unique – your whole upper face area can appear years younger. All because of these wonderfully complementing procedures. And again, you have the designs done simultaneously – think about how much time you save on recovery! Of course, it’s all up to you again – you decide if you want the additional procedure done next to Blepharoplasty. During the consultation with your plastic surgeon, you can discuss if complementing procedures are necessary and, if they are, which ones would be the best for you.
AN UNEXPECTED BENEFIT OF BLEPHAROPLASTY – IT IMPROVES YOUR VISION
This is where the functional benefit of the eyelid lift surgery comes to light – by firming the eyelids. Blepharoplasty can improve your peripheral/side vision. You can develop saggy eyelids because of age or genetics. At some point, you realize that your field of vision is impaired because of droopy skin. This can interfere with your everyday life because you can’t perform some actions. Luckily, an eyelid lift can be the answer to this problem. After this surgery, you can have a clear view of your sight again. So, as you can see, Blepharoplasty has a double benefit – not only does it improve your appearance, but it also helps you see better. Next to its aesthetic benefits, Blepharoplasty can also improve your quality of life.
EXPECT LONG-LASTING RESULTS AFTER EYELID LIFT SURGERY
And also, you can see the first improvements in the look of your eyes soon after the surgery. You have to wait for the swelling to resolve, and you will notice that your eyes are more alert and youthful-looking. Even though it may take about a year to see the full results of the surgery, your eyelids gradually get more and more improved. It is worthwhile to wait for the outcomes because they will last for up to 10 years or even more. Indeed, we can’t stop aging, but you can prolong the effects of Blepharoplasty by protecting your eyes from the sun so that the skin on your eyelids doesn’t age fast. And that healthy lifestyle habits and proper skin care can keep the results even longer. Finally, you can opt to maintain the effects of this surgery with Botox injected in the eyebrow area to maintain your eyes’ youthful appearance and alertness.
HAVE A CONSULTATION WITH A SKILLED PLASTIC SURGEON
Getting Blepharoplasty can change your life. Improving under-eyebags, loose and saggy skin on the eyelids, and wrinkles around the eye area can be an excellent investment in yourself and your future. There are numerous benefits to undergoing this surgery, from improving your vision to achieving a rejuvenated and refreshed appearance. But both the results and the recovery period depending on your specific situation and your plastic surgeon. So it’s vital to choose a surgeon you can trust who has extensive experience performing this procedure. During your initial consultation with Lucia’s plastic surgeon, you can ask all the questions you might have about this surgery – rest assured that you will get full attention. Lucia’s plastic surgeon will gladly answer all your questions and work with you to create a customized treatment plan that will address only your eyelid concerns – this way, you are guaranteed to have a smooth recovery, minimal scarring, and natural-looking results.
HOW CAN YOU SEE IF YOU’RE A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR BLEPHAROPLASTY?
As we’ve already mentioned, your eyes tell everything – even before you speak. Puffy bags underneath your eyes and loose skin on your eyelids make you look tired or sad. When you have these concerns, you can’t conceal them with makeup – it just doesn’t work. And as your eyelids start to lose their elasticity, you can’t even put on makeup because the eyeshadow or eyeliner is creasing over the excess skin on your eyelids. But, perhaps the most annoying sign that you should consider Blepharoplasty is that the skin under your eyebrows is so saggy that you can feel it when you blink. All these issues can be a thing of the past after eyelid lift surgery. Of course, during the consultation with your plastic surgeon, you will get the go-ahead with the surgery, provided that you don’t have any medical issues and are generally healthy. Just imagine – after the excess skin has been removed and your eyelids lifted, you will enjoy your younger, more energetic, and more awake appearance. You can say goodbye to looking tired!
