Eyelid Surgery: Making the Decision

shutterstock_130190102Eyelid rejuvenation surgery is currently one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the country. Although this type of procedure has been around for decades, refinements in modern medicine and surgery have made it possible for eyelid surgery to be performed with less tissue injury and shorter recovery periods.

So how does one figure out if eyelid surgery is the procedure they’re looking for? You can use the following questions as a guide:

  • Do you appear perpetually upset or tired even though you aren’t?
  • Is loose, sagging skin a problem in your upper eyelids?
  • Is puffiness obvious in your lower eyelids? Do eye bags appear consistently in the lower eyelid region?
  • Have you tried getting enough sleep and using eye creams to improve the appearance of your eyes but to no avail?

If you answered yes to the aforementioned questions, an eyelid surgery is most likely to help you restore your youthful vigor. In some cases, an eyelid surgery is performed not just for cosmetic reasons but also for functional purposes. A functional blepharoplasty may be done to improve upper eyelids that droop too low and impair your vision.
