New Year, New You: How Eyelid Surgery Can Change Your Life

The start of a new year is a time to reflect, make changes and envision the future you want to create. It’s a time for new beginnings and to take steps that can help you realize your best self. 

When you look in the mirror, do you notice a less than fresh-eyed version of you? 

See yourself in a new light. 

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can help re-awaken and transform an aging appearance and give you a renewed sense of confidence. One of the top ten most popular cosmetic surgeries in the world, eyelid surgery may be performed on both the upper and lower part of the eyelid—and the results can be life-changing. 

What does blepharoplasty treat? 

The eye area is particularly susceptible to the visible effect of aging and an area where age-related changes can significantly impact your appearance—making you look tired or angry, or older than you really are (or feel). When the skin around your eyes begins to droop, it can even start to affect your vision. 

With age, skin loses its elasticity and gravity causes the skin to sag and droop—and the delicate skin around the eyes is no exception. 

Eyelid surgery can help treat and improve concerns including, droopy eyelids, excess, loose skin, folds that may cause impaired vision and disrupt the natural contour of the eye, wrinkles, bags under the eyes, and bulging or puffiness caused by fatty deposits. 

Depending on your individual needs and what you wish to address, you may elect to undergo an upper blepharoplasty, lower blepharoplasty, or both. 

Why can eyelid surgery be a life-changing investment?

See more clearly

From a purely functional standpoint, it can help you see better. It eliminates the loose or excess skin folds that may physically hang down over your eyes and cause vision impairment.

Your eyes tell your age (and sometimes they lie!) 

Because the eye area has the potential to profoundly age you, eyelid surgery can take years—even decades—off your appearance. Just look at before and after photos. The results speak for themselves.

Your eyes communicate emotion

When you upper eyelids have excess skin, people tend to believe you’re chronically tired, angry, and less than healthy. We express so much with our eyes, and the eyelids and appearance of the eye area can give the wrong impression or lead to misinterpreting what we see. Eyelid surgery can help nix this problem, giving you a refreshed, more bright-eyed appearance (and ensure they’ll be no misunderstanding when you are actually angry). 

It’s an investment in yourself and your future (and a cost effective one, too)

Surgery offers a more permanent solution to wrinkles, volume loss, and hollows under the eye than temporary injections and dermal fillers. Treatment does not require ongoing maintenance and is likely a more cost-effective option in the long-run. How you look and feel about yourself effects how you see and interact with the world—and every area of your life, from work to relationships. The new level of confidence eyelid surgery can give you? Well, there’s no price on that.
