The Eyelid Aging Process
As skin ages, it gradually loses its elasticity. A lack of elasticity plus the constant pull from gravity causes excessive skin to collect on the upper and lower eyelids. This procedure is often done along with other cosmetic procedures such as filler injections, or forehead lifts.
Whilst this surgery is usually done for cosmetic reasons, it’s also an effective way to improve the sight in older people. Sagging upper eyelids can hang over eyelashes and get in the way of your vision. Additionally, excess skin on the lower eyelid causes wrinkles and bulges.
3 Things you must know about Eyelid Reduction Surgery
Is Eyelid Reduction surgery painful?
Pain is subjective, and may not be accurately predicted between patients.
The psychological state of a patient may affect the perception and tolerance of pain.
Different drugs may be taken to minimise the discomfort or pain, especially associated with major surgery.
Who Is a Good Candidate For Eyelid Surgery?
The best candidates for an eye lift are people who are in good health and who have realistic expectations. Most are 35 years or older, but if baggy eyelids or droopy eyelids run in your family, you may decide to have the surgery done sooner.
Eyelid surgery can enhance your appearance and help build your confidence.
Will the Results of Eyelid Surgery Be Permanent?
Upper eyelid surgery can last at least five to seven years. Lower eyelid surgery rarely needs to be repeated. Of course, your eyes will still age after the procedure.
If your lids sag again, a forehead lift rather than another eye lift may be the preferred procedure.
