With the lines and wrinkles that appear around our eyes with age or other factors like lack of sleep and application of harsh cosmetics, we start looking tired and aged. If this has happened to you, you need not worry, as now there is something called eye lift surgery available which can eliminate or reduce the defects in eyes that make them look aged. Dr. Naveen Somia, the best eyelid surgeon in Sydney, has shared information for our readers on how an eye lift can make you look younger.
Types of Eye Lift Surgery and their Benefits
Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is of three main types and is done with different purposes.
Lower Eyelid Surgery
First type of eye lift surgery is lower eyelid blepharoplasty which is done on the lower eyelid. This is done for removing eye bags that appear under the eyes as we age. This also improves the wrinkled skin around the eyes. With age, heredity or other factors, the skin below our eyes becomes loose, saggy and/or puffy, and fats are deposited there. Sometimes the skin is so sagged and puffy, that it looks like bags and are actually called eye bags. The lower eyelid surgery removes these eye bags by removing the fat deposits.
Lower eyelid surgery is also done simultaneously with other cosmetic surgeries like upper eyelid surgery, forehead lift or facelift. It can also be combined with chemical or laser resurfacing to diminish skin wrinkles.
Lower blepharoplasty can bring a notable difference in the look of your eyes and overall face. It removes the look of tiredness and agedness by improving the look of the eyes.
Upper Eyelid Surgery
When problems like fat deposit, wrinkles and excess skin appear at the upper eyelid, it becomes even more problematic that it happens with the lower eyelid. These problems in the upper eyelid do not only make you look tired and aged, but also they make the upper eyelid sag so much that it obstructs your vision.
Upper eyelid surgery removes the extra skin in the upper eyelid and drooping upper eyelids are improved. Because the drooping of the upper lid is improved, the vision too is improved. It also removes the extra fat deposit from the upper lids. It also smoothes the lines, creases and wrinkles in the upper lid that make your eyes look aged.
Double Eyelid Surgery
Double eyelid surgery, also known as Asian blepharoplasty, is getting increasingly popular because it brings about a striking change in the look of eyes. While the above-mentioned procedures are done to remove lines and wrinkles from the skin around eyes, double eyelid surgery is done to create a crease in the eyelids to make them look beautiful.
Double eyelid surgery facilitates application of eye makeup and to make eyes look more prominent. Double eyelid surgery also helps in making the eyes look more natural and balanced. Excessive puffiness in the upper eyelids is also reduced with this procedure. What’s more, this procedure is also recommended for reducing the puffiness in the lower eyelid.
