What No One Tells You About Eyelid Surgery

It is important to be realistic about what eyelid surgery (also known as blepharoplasty) can and cannot do for you. Eyelid surgery removes fat as well as excess skin and sometimes some muscle from both the upper as well as the lower eyelids in order to do away with drooping upper eyelids as well as eliminating puffiness that causes bags under the eyes. These problems have a way of making a person look much older than their years as well as looking exhausted as if they have not slept in days even when that is not the case. Sometimes drooping upper eyelids can even wreck havoc with eyesight, which makes it more than a cosmetic problem. This is what eyelid surgery can help to rid a person of.

On the other hand, eyelid surgery is not capable of getting rid of wrinkles around the eyes and it cannot do away from crow's feet. Eyelid surgery is also not capable of getting rid of the dark circles that sometimes rim the eyes and it is not possible that this type of surgery can lift eyebrows that are showing evidence of sagging and droopiness. For Asian individuals eyelid surgery can manage to add a crease to the upper eyelid but it will still be obvious that the individual is of the Asian race.

In some instances eyelid surgery is a procedure that is done on its own while in other cases it is done along with other types of facial surgery such as a brow lift for example or a facelift. If you are considering eyelid surgery, whether alone or combining it with other procedures then speak with the plastic surgeon to find out what is best for your individual situation as not everyone situation fits the exact same scenario.

It is important to keep in mind that while eyelid surgery is capable of improving your looks and also in helping to have a positive impact on your level of self-confidence, your looks will not be altered to the point where you will look like a movie star. It is essential to be realistic in your expectations about the surgery in order not to be disappointed.

The very best candidates for this type of surgery are both males and females who are physically in excellent health and psychologically are stable and in excellent health as well. It cannot be emphasized enough that being realistic about the hoped for results of eyelid surgery is so important as well. The majority of candidates are at least 35 years of age and older. Some people who choose to have eyelid surgery are younger than age 35 because droopy, saggy eyelids tend to run in their family.

Those who suffer from hypothyroidism or Graves' disease should think twice before deciding to have eyelid surgery. People who suffer from dry eyes, high blood pressure, diabetes, and a variety of circulatory diseases should always speak with their eye doctor before they schedule an appointment for eyelid surgery.
