So often, when people are asked what attracted them to another person in their first meeting, their answer is, “their eyes.” Our eyes have a way of sharing our thoughts and feelings, yet it might be the interest they express in those around us that is among their most attractive qualities.
People are interested in people who are interested in them, and it’s our eyes that show that interest. So, when time and gravity have had their effect, and our brows and eyelids lower, this look can make us seem tired, apathetic, or disengaged from others or the outside world.
Eyelid lift surgery is an answer to this case of mistaken identity for many people. It has practical advantages too, because it can improve our field of vision, and many men opt for eyelid lifts because of this.
Youthful, Vibrant, and Responsive
Because our eyes reveal ourselves as well as express ourselves, returning to the eager and alert look of our youth can be a wise choice for career, community, and even love life.
The delicacy of tissue in and around the eyelids makes them vulnerable to sagging or drooping as we grow older; the skin there is thin and tender. Yet that same delicacy, together with an especially rich blood supply, means that eyelids are exceptionally responsive to surgery. Healing is rapid here and the ability to take shape is strong. Incisions can often be completely hidden in the natural folds of the eyelid.
While we might tend to think of eyelid lift surgery in terms of opening up the upper eyelids, the lower lids can benefit from the same treatment in many cases. “Bags under the eyes,” puffiness, and the kind of drooping that reveals too much white below the pupil can be reduced or eliminated.
As Personal as Your View On The World
The goals of each person and his or her concerns are always personal and individual when it comes to cosmetic surgery. This is perhaps particularly true when it comes to any procedure about the eyes. The options and approaches to eyelid surgery are among the most personalized and varied of any plastic surgery procedure.
So, more than ever, it calls for an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon with a record of accomplishment. The skill, passion, and talent to understand your goals, and to offer expert options for achieving them, is never more important than when you consider eyelid lift surgery.
You should find yourself completely comfortable and confident when you have your conversation with that plastic surgeon. To be sure you are in just such hands, please give us a call. It would be a privilege to have that talk with you.
