Look Younger and More Alert with Cosmetic Lower Eyelid Surgery
- Posted on: May 5 2019
Do people tell you that you look “sleepy,” even when you’re fully rested? Do you find it difficult to properly apply eye makeup? Is there an excess of skin below your eyes, or puffy-looking bags?
If so, you may be a prime candidate for blepharoplasty – that is, cosmetic lower eyelid surgery. Millions of people have excess skin under their eyes, which gives them the appearance of having bags under their eyes. Besides being unsightly, this can cause serious issues in their lives, when other people assume, they’re unwell, sleepy, or hung over!
Why Do People Need Cosmetic Lower Eyelid Surgery
There are several potential causes for bags or excess skin under the eyes, but your local cosmetic surgery center has solutions for all of them.
Potential causes include:
Prolapsed orbital fat. Our eyes naturally have a layer of fat surrounding them, helping protect them and provide a cushion against impact damage. Usually, this fat is far under the skin, away from sight. However, if this fat slips out of its usual place, it often collects beneath the eye – creating large unsightly bags which won’t go away.
Modern cosmetic surgeons can easily remove this fat or push it back into its proper place within the orbital cavity.
Loose skin. Sometimes the problem is more basic, and there is simply too much skin beneath the eyes. This is often due to changes in facial fat or simply a byproduct of aging. Either way, cosmetic lower eyelid surgery can nip-and-tuck this excess skin away, tightening up the area below your eyes and giving you a more youthful appearance.
Poor eyelid muscle support. Some people’s facial muscles fail to give their eyelids proper support. This is a problem which often goes undiagnosed but, over time, it causes their eyelids to sag more and more – giving them a permanently “sleepy” look. Your plastic surgeon has several options for dealing with this, from tightening up the muscles, to reshaping the skin below the eyes to provide better support.
