Okay, so you’re not just looking at it from a cosmetic point of view. Sure, you’ll look brighter, more alert and probably more youthful, but your choice to undergo blepharoplasty isn’t just to appease your vanity.
No. It’s to keep you from going practically blind!
Although eyelid surgery is designed mainly to improve the aesthetic appearance of the eyes, there is one reason that’s steeped in practicality. With age, the upper eyelids begin to droop and sag, covering up the eyeball and causing problems with vision. Did you know that this ptosis can even result in irritation and infection?
That’s why some people undergo eyelid surgery for reasons that are more than trivial. Depending on the amount of ptosis, the cosmetic surgical procedure removes excess skin and fat so that the upper eyelids no longer hang over the eyeball as much when fully open.
Following surgery, bruising and any puffiness that may occur will gradually subside, the duration depending on the individual. With the true results finally emerging over the course of a few weeks, vision impediments and other related problems generally disappear.
