6 Reasons to Consider Upper Blepharoplasty

As early as our mid-20s, our skin begins to lose elastin and collagen causing the beginning of the aging process.

Unfortunately, this process affects our eyes and is noticeably visible due to the skin laxity this produces. The skin laxity can vary in severity and, in some cases, the skin laxity can even cause impediment of vision. In most cases, this can cause a tired or aging look including wrinkles/fine lines making people to feel self-conscious.

Luckily, technology has advanced; we can easily reverse the hands of time with upper and lower blepharoplasty procedures and they can even be performed in office. Here are some of the benefits to expect from blepharoplasties.

1. Brighter Eyes

The extra skin around your eyes can prevent light from reaching your irises, the part that gives your eye color, and this can dull the look of your eyes.

Removing the skin, can allow the light to penetrate fully and will naturally allow your eyes to brighten.

2. A Youthful Appearance

Here is something you did not think you would lose as you age: your eye shape.

Our skin can sag under our eyes or even appear puffy due to pockets of fat under the eyes. This will cause large round eyes or almond-shaped eyes to lose their shape, changing them to a rounder and narrower shape.

3. An Upper Blepharoplasty Improves Vision

The benefits of an eye lift are not only cosmetic.

Depending on our genetics or the amount of sagging skin above and around our eyes, skin laxity can affect our vision by obstructing our field of view.

4. Alleviate Headaches and Migraines

In addition to, or sometimes in conjunction with the vision benefits, significant relief from tension headaches can be achieved by those that receive blepharoplasty procedures.

A surgery that can improve your quality of life is worth investigating.

5. Reduce Wrinkles

As a result of the heavy skin, as we struggle to see better and focus our vision we tend to furrow our brows, adding additional stress to our forehead. This habit can be eliminated by removal of excess skin.

6. Boost Your Confidence.

An increase in wrinkles and sagging skin can start to decrease a person’s confidence. We eat well and exercise to be the best versions of ourselves and yet, sometimes environmental factors or genetic factors are out of our hands.

An upper blepharoplasty procedure can help reverse the hands of time effectively. These procedures help smooth out wrinkles, lift skin, and even minor alterations can make a big difference. With the ability to perform an upper blepharoplasty as an in-office procedure, there is nothing impeding you from living your best life!

We can help you love the skin that you are in and increase your confidence!
