Although you cannot stop the aging process, eyelid surgery can restore the youthful fire in your eyes by eliminating excess skin and fat around the eyes. Dr. Schwarcz is a cosmetic surgery Scarsdale expert who can make you look several years younger by altering the appearance of your tired-looking eyes.

An overview of eyelid surgery

Eyelid surgery, medically known as blepharoplasty, is an aesthetic surgery that eliminates excess skin around your eyelids. As you age, the muscles anchoring your eyelids begin weakening, and the eyelids stretch, which encourages the accumulation of excess fat and skin under the eyelids. This can result in droopy eyelids, bags under your eyes, and sagging eyebrows, creating a tired look. In addition to affecting your facial aesthetics, drooping eyebrows and droopy eyelids can interfere with your peripheral vision. Blepharoplasty reduces the excess fat and skin restoring clear vision and enhancing your facial aesthetics. Additionally, the surgery makes you appear younger, more approachable, and more alert.

How you can benefit from eyelid surgery

No one wants to appear older or tired, even though appearance is not a high priority for some people. Unfortunately, as you age, the skin around your eyes is likely to sag and droop, affecting your appearance. If you are contemplating eyelid surgery to correct sagging and droopy eyelids, below are some benefits you might enjoy.

  • Restores your youthful appearance

One reason why many people consider eyelid surgery is to eliminate droopy and sagging eyelids, restoring their youthfulness. The skin above the eyes is thin and delicate, and your skin receives minimal collagen as you age, causing it to lose its firmness. People with a genetic predisposition to ptosis or drooping eyelids have a higher chance of developing tired eyes appearance in their early 20s and 30s. Blepharoplasty is the most reliable cosmetic procedure to eliminate excess fat and skin around your eyes, giving your eyes a youthful fire.

  • Boosts self-confidence

Some people will tell you that beauty is skin deep, but if you have physical imperfections like droopy eyelids, it may affect your self-esteem. If you dread looking at the mirror because your eyelids make you look tired or older than you are, consider eyelid surgery. Correcting that imperfection can enhance your appearance, helping you feel better about yourself.

  • An enhanced field of vision

Tired eyes are usually a cosmetic concern for people without a genetic predisposition to sagging eyelids. Eyelid sagging can be severe to the point of blocking your peripheral vision. The sagging occurs gradually and may be too subtle for you to notice until you start experiencing vision problems. If lifting your eyebrows with your fingers improves your vision, you may be a candidate for blepharoplasty.

  • Improves social interactions

Droopy eyelids can make you appear tired, grumpy, and unapproachable, even though you are friendly. You will be surprised at how eyelid surgery can impact your social relationships, as people will view you as energetic, friendly, and approachable.
