The early signs of aging start to show as we grow older, and would commonly start with saggy eyelids, wrinkles, and creases around the eyes. Cosmetic eyelid surgery can correct the early aging signs to turn back the clock for a while, giving you that rejuvenated expression. This type of surgery is not a permanent solution, but rather a corrective surgery that focuses on the cosmetic aspects of the upper and lower eyelids.
What Causes Eyelid Protrusion?
Saggy upper eyelids and baggy lower eyelids are generally caused by fat accumulation around the eyes and underneath the eyelids. This is caused by age, but can also be a genetic condition, in which case they can cause vision impairment by reducing the eyes’ field of view. Cosmetic eyelid surgery removes excessive skin on the upper eyelids to reduce eyelid protrusion. This surgery also targets the fat deposits underneath the eyelids to reduce the appearance of baggy and/or saggy eyelids. The surgeon can also correct small wrinkles and creases around the eyes for a rejuvenated and more youthful facial expression at the end of the day.
An Ideal Candidate for Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
Our eyesight naturally deteriorates because of age, in the same way that early aging signs are unavoidable. As a result, if you are considering cosmetic eyelid surgery, you must consider the general health of your eyesight as well. If you are undergoing any medical treatments for your eyes, these treatments might impede the surgery and the results. When you book a consultation with one of our professional surgeons, your surgeon can assess your eyelids and give you their professional opinion on how blepharoplasty can work, whether it is to reduce upper eyelid protrusion or work towards a rejuvenated facial expression. If you are a smoker, prepare to stop smoking for at least 2 months before and after the surgery. This will optimise oxygen flow in your body on a cellular level for optimal healing and recovery.
