Eye lift plastic surgery is one of the most common procedures desired by both men and women. This is because many of us look much older and tired than we really are, and in some cases angry, due to the appearance of our eyelids. Upper lids that droop, for example, can make someone look tired and disinterested, while lower eyelid bags can make you look older. If you are unhappy with your eyelids, eye lift plastic surgery might be the answer.
Correcting the Problem With Eye Lift Plastic Surgery
As we age, the skin folds of our upper eyelids tend to increase, resulting in drooping eyelids. This problem can be corrected with a laser upper eyelid lift, which is one of the safest and most effective ways to address this problem. With this type of surgery, the eye is protected with a shield that prevents the laser from penetrating it.
Lower eyelid bags are actually the result of protruding fat. This fat naturally cushions the eye and is held back by a membrane, which weakens as we age. In some cases this membrane is weak in younger individuals and lower eyelid bags can appear at a young age. Laser assisted eye lift plastic surgery can also correct this problem.
In most cases, a lower eyelid lift can be done without any incisions or visible scars, while an upper eyelid eyelift leaves a small scar (usually hidden) in the upper eyelid fold. Laser eye lift plastic surgery has a very short recovery period, involves almost no bleeding, and in most cases leaves very little bruising. Eye lift plastic surgery can make you look younger and more alert; but you must do your research and find a reputable surgeon. Eye lift plastic surgery can be expensive and varies based on what you are having done and where the surgery will take place. Surgery done in a hospital, for example, will be more expensive. You must weigh the cost and benefits to make this very personal decision, and again, do all of your homework.
Consider all of your options. In some cases, you may be able to make some improvements without surgery. The Aluma Skin Renewal System, for example, is a non-invasive eye lift treatment without surgery. This treatment involves penetrating the skin with radio frequency energy, thereby affecting the deeper dermis and sub-dermal layers causing microscopic changes to the tissues and collagen contraction. Finally, you should also factor your lifestyle into any treatment decisions you make. In some cases, smoking, excessive weight gain, high stress or too much sun can cause droopy lids to appear. Lifestyle changes could have a positive impact, and should be considered along with other non-surgical options prior to investing in any quick fix surgery.
