    Droopy Eyelids

    Do Droopy Eyes Make You Appear Older Than You Are?

    Various factors can cause droopy eyes. Droopy eyelids develop when fatty deposits or loose skin form under the eyes and it is thought that family members may have a genetic predisposition to drooping or sagging eyelids. External factors such as your lifestyle and living environment can account for sagging eyelids. However, it doesn’t matter what has caused your lids to droop, sagging eyelids caused by fatty deposits definitely make you look older. Study your droopy eyes in the mirror and you may feel depressed or wonder if you should undergo laser eyelid surgery.

    Blepharoplasty is the surgical term for eyelid surgery and this popular form of cosmetic surgery aims to remove excess fat, muscle or skin from the lower and upper eyelids to make the eyelids taut. People with droopy eyes often suffer from drooping eyelashes and the saggy eyelashes can impair vision. This kind of surgery is also used to treat Ptosis, a medical condition which causes the eyelids to droop. Ptosis is often the result of nerve damage or poor muscle tone. You should visit your doctor before considering eyelid surgery; you need to know the reason why your eyelids droop and if surgery is the right way forward.

    Blepharoplasty is not used to treat skin wrinkles or drooping eyebrows, however, it is an effective way to treat droopy eyes. Those who have drooping eyebrows or skin wrinkles need a different type of treatment. Blepharoplasty is often carried out at the same time as a face lift or a brow lift because all of these cosmetic procedures correct droopy eyes. It is wise to do some research before contacting a cosmetic surgeon. You should read about various cosmetic procedures, gain an insight into different types of cosmetic treatment and learn the pros and cons of cosmetic surgery as a whole.

    Laser treatment is a good way to correct droopy eyelids and individuals who enjoy good physical and emotional health are prime candidates for laser eyelid surgery. Naturally, anyone wishing to undergo laser surgery should be aware of the limitations, risks and advantages.

    As a rule, candidates are thirty five years old or above, though younger people have been treated owing to certain genetic factors. No form of cosmetic surgery is without risk, but eyelid surgery is not available to people who suffer from glaucoma, diabetes, Grave’s disease, cardiovascular disease, hyperthyroidism or dry eyes.

    The Epione’s non-surgical Sixty Minute Facelift is the ideal alternative to Blepharoplasty. Laser skin resurfacing has numerous benefits and laser eyelid surgery involves no skin cuts or bleeding. In fact, laser skin resurfacing is a simple cosmetic procedure that produces long lasting results. This kind of laser surgery is always carried out by a qualified doctor and people who have laser treatment rarely suffer any lasting side-effects. Laser eyelid surgery is a subtle cosmetic procedure that will deal with your droopy eyes, leaving the eyelids taut and youthful, making you feel years younger.

    A percentage of people who visit the doctor decide Blepharoplasty is right for them. During the course of this cosmetic procedure the surgeon will make a few small incisions along the upper eyelid and, if needs be, cut the skin away underneath the droopy eyes. If your eyelids don’t droop too badly the surgeon may just remove the fatty tissue under the skin. A Blepharoplasty is usually carried out whilst the patient is under local anesthesia, however, some people need to have a general anesthetic.
