Three Ways Eyelid Surgery Improves Your Quality of Life

June 24 2016

According to the latest statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, eyelid surgery was one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures of 2015. The number of eyelid surgeries performed is expected to rise as more people discover the benefits of the procedure. In this blog post, the Atlanta Plastic & Reconstructive Specialists share three ways eyelid surgery can boost your quality of life.

 Turns Back the Clock

Your eyes are one of the most prominent facial features, which means they have a big impact on the appearance of your overall face. Sagging, puffy eyelids can make you look more tired and older than you feel. Eyelid surgery is one of the most effective ways to restore a refreshed facial appearance. The procedure helps reverse the signs of aging, including:

  • Saggy upper eyelid skin
  • Puffy bags on the upper and/or lower eyelids
  • Excess fatty deposits on the eyelids
  • Excess skin and fine lines on the lower eyelids

To further enhance your facial appearance, your plastic surgeon may recommend combining eyelid surgery with other rejuvenation procedures such as facelift and Botox.

2. Improves Your Vision

Significant drooping of the upper eyelids can be more than a cosmetic concern. Extra deposits of skin and tissue on the upper eyelids can make it difficult to properly open the eyes, impairing your line of sight. Eyelid surgery removes those fatty deposits and excess skin, making your eyes bigger and brighter, and instantly expanding your line of vision. The procedure can also provide relief from strained brow muscles, as you no longer have to constantly use them to raise the upper eyelids in an attempt to see properly.

3. Boosts Your Self-Confidence

If you shy away from having your picture taken or avoid meeting new people because of the appearance of your eyes, eyelid surgery can greatly improve your self-confidence. Not only will you look younger, more rested and rejuvenated, you’ll feel the part as well. A more vibrant appearance will allow you to present yourself proudly and confidently to the world. Your self-conscious feelings caused by puffy bags or droopy eyelids will resolve and you will feel more confident and happy about your appearance.
