From fine lines and wrinkles to puffiness and sagging, the eyes are often the first place our clients see signs of aging. Blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that involves removing excess skin and fat around the eyes for a more youthful and rejuvenated look to the eye area. 

The skin around our eyes is very delicate. Chronic stress, smoking, and sun damage can speed up changes to the eyes, in addition to the regular aging process. It is also easy to forget about the eye area as part of a comprehensive skincare routine. Blepharoplasty is a common choice for clients who want to appear more youthful and vibrant while maintaining a natural look. What are the common skin concerns that an eyelid lift can help you solve?

1. Fine Lines and Wrinkles Around The Eyes

According to our clients, wrinkles and fine lines are two of the most common skin concerns when it comes to getting old. Blepharoplasty is commonly used to minimize these lines, creases, and wrinkles around the eyes. An eyelid lift helps restore the eye’s natural creases, making them look more open and youthful. 

2. Sagging Eyelids and Excess Skin 

Drooping skin is another common reason clients choose to get an eyelid lift. Sagging around the eyes can make an individual look tired and older than they are. Sometimes, sagging and excess skin on the eyelids can even impact a person’s ability to see correctly. Blepharoplasty removes that problematic skin and improves a person’s field of vision.

3. Puffiness Under and Around The Eyes

Often attributed to a lack of sleep, puffiness around the eyes can also be caused by fat that develops under the skin, causing a permanent, sleepless look. An eyelid lift can reduce those fat pockets for a more rejuvenated, fresh-faced appearance.
