How can an eyelid lift improve my vision?
When you think of eyelid surgery, most would assume the reason is tired-looking eyes. But in reality, there are endless reasons to invest in yourself! The skin around our eyes is so thin that this area will often show the first signs of aging. As we age, the skin around our eyes naturally begins to wrinkle, sag, or fold. Loss of elasticity, combined with the natural laws of gravity, can create a droopy appearance. In many cases, the excess skin can actually hang over the eyelid enough to impair your vision. When your sight is hindered, it is also likely that your forehead muscles are working to lift the eyelid which can lead to horizontal lines on the forehead.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, may reduce or eliminate these concerns. By removing the excess tissue, we can improve the upper and outer areas of your field of vision. The procedure is typically fairly simple, quick, and can be performed under local anesthesia. Not only do the benefits include a more youthful appearance, a common outcome is better vision as well. Combat the tell-tale signs of aging with an eyelid lift to achieve the elevated aesthetic you deserve!
