Your eyes are the windows to your soul. They can express deep emotions without having to say a word. However, genetics and aging factors can take away such aspects of your eyes by giving you an unpleasant look that can also give false expressions of how you feel. Fortunately, Peoria blepharoplasty specialists at Arizona Ocular & Facial Plastic Surgery can help you get a more appealing appearance. Blepharoplasty is an eyelid surgery aiming at repairing your droopy, puffy eyelids. This procedure comes with the following fantastic benefits.
- Improved Vision Through Expanded Line of Sight
Blepharoplasty can remove the excess skin in your upper lid, improving your vision. In severe cases of excess skin in your upper eyelid, the lid can be draped over your eyelashes, causing difficulties to see through your peripheral vision. Whether the sagging is due to genetics, poor lifestyle choices, age, or sun exposure, you don’t have to suffer poor vision. You can know that you are suffering if you notice you are tipping your head to see appropriately. And the best thing to do is take it as a sign that you need an upper eyelid blepharoplasty.
- Reduced Eye Bags
If you have excess fat pockets in your eyelids, you can benefit from blepharoplasty. The procedure can remove the fat pockets that enhance the appearance of under-eye bags, reducing their appearance. Although these eye bags are often mistaken to be caused by allergies, fatigue, or lack of sleep, they are actually due to lower eyelid fat prolapse. The eye is in the orbit of the skull, and orbital fat resides behind the orbital spectrum around the eye. It is the orbital fat that causes your eyes to appear puffy and cause the appearance of the under-eye bags. Blepharoplasty aims at removing, repositioning, and sculpting the eye fats such that the under-eye bags are improved.
- Refreshed Appearance Through Enhanced Eye Shape
Your eyelid can be rejuvenated through upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty. This is because the procedure eliminates the extra skin and fat from your eyelids and the adjacent areas. In doing so, a more youthful, refreshed, and rejuvenated appearance is revealed. Besides, your eye shape is enhanced.
- Dark Under-Eye Circles are Removed
As it is now evident, blepharoplasty can enhance your appearance by giving you a well-rested and more youthful appearance. This can also boost your self-confidence and improve your self-esteem. This is because by removing the extra fat and skin from your eyelids and through fat repositioning, the dark circles in your eyes can be eliminated. This softens your overall appearance.
- Reduced Misunderstandings
Your eyes are central to expressing your emotions and feelings, making them critical in engaging with others. However, other people can often misunderstand your feelings when you have droopy and sagging eyelids. You may always look tired, sad, or angry. This can be very wrong if you feel happy and cheerful, but your eyes express otherwise. Blepharoplasty can help you avoid such misunderstandings by aligning your facial cues with your internal state of being.
It can take a while to exhaust the benefits of blepharoplasty. This is because the results vary from one person to another, depending on the particular needs.
