The eyes are the window to the soul: it’s an old cliche, but one that still holds true. The eyes are the most expressive and most open part of the human face and often considered one of the most attractive features.
But as we age, wrinkles and fine lines crop up around our eyes; bags develop from a lack of sleep or an excess of caffeine; lids sag, obstructing your view and leaving you looking permanently tired.
Fortunately, eyelid lifts are able to quickly and easily combat these signs of aging, leaving you with a younger, more energetic visage. Its effectiveness has made it a very popular option, causing some plastic surgeons to opt for a simple eyelid lift in lieu of a facelift.
If you are considering an eyelid lift, here are several reasons why it might be for you!
- Reduces Fine Lines
Although fine lines are not the primary reason most people consider an eyelid lift, the reduction of fine lines in many patients is stunning. The reduction of these lines that occurs naturally by living both the upper and lower lids can help lend themselves to a rejuvenated, youthful appearance, especially when combined with treatments such as chemical peels or Botox.
- No More Bags
Say goodbye to those pesky bags below the eyes, the ones that give you the constant appearance of exhaustion, even when you are fully rested. An eyelid lift will remove the excess skin and tissue below the lines, and might even help with the darkness
- Better Vision
Heavily dropping upper eyelids can cause serious vision impairments, impeding your driving and your comfort. Lifting the upper lid can allow you to reclaim your full field of vision.
Whether you are struggling to see or trying to mitigate the appearance of aging around your eyes, an eyelid lift is a potent and effective treatment. In fact, eyelid procedures are the third most commonly sought cosmetic trend, according to a 2015 survey.
