Blepharoplasty, more commonly known as eyelid surgery is a procedure meant to improve the appearance of your eyelids. By undergoning eyelid surgery, a person can rejuvenate their appearance due to their eyes looking more rested. Eyelid surgery can also correct the following problems:
- reduce fat deposits that create puffiness of the upper eyelids
- sagging skin or folds of skin under the eyelids
- bags of skin under eyes
- drooping eyelids
- wrinkles around eyes
- skin overhang
The benefits of eyelid surgery include a more youthful looking face and enhanced facial beauty. However there are many risks associated with eyelid surgery. Some common risks include:
- Impaired vision
- Dry eyes
Anyone considering eyelid surgery should make sure that they thoroughly understand the risks. Patients suffering from glaucoma, dry eye, detached retina, thyroid disorders, and cardiovascular diseases may not be good candidates for such cosmetic procedures.
Again, be sure to go to go to a board certified doctor for a consultation for any cosmetic procedure. After all, your health and safety should be your primary consideration.
