A surgery common among both men and women, Blepharoplasty is basically a countermeasure to ensure that your lower eyelids are not puffy anymore. A condition that can take place from anything from herniating fat, water retention or due to the presence of a lot of skin – it is easy to fix it with Blepharoplasty. 

Puffy lower eyelids can give you the appearance of constantly being tired. It adds age to a person’s appearance, and not everyone is comfortable having it. By removing excess fat from the area and tightening up the skin, the facial features of a human can look starkly different. 

So if you are worn out from constantly appearing tired, even when you are not – then this is a permanent solution for you. The reason why people opt for Blepharoplasty, are as varied as are humans – but factors such as wanting to look alert, or because their sense of well being was being replaced by anxiety are a few to name.

If you are looking to make your eyes more open, or you are looking to remove past anxiety and turn your eyes from tired to relaxed, then Blepharoplasty may be the right procedure for you. At the end of the procedure, the skin around your eyes will be tightened and the excess fat from the area removed. You can say goodbye to baggy lower eyelids forever.

What You Can Expect From the Procedure

The very basis of undergoing a lower eyelid surgery is to know exactly how much of both fat and skin needs to be removed. If not done well, it could lead to a condition called lid retraction which comes with problems of its own. 

A procedure like this is very complex and requires a keen eye for detail. That’s why it’s important for you to only undergo this surgery with a skilled plastic surgeon. By locating a surgeon you are comfortable with, and by regularly conversing with them in the weeks before your surgery, you can reduce your fear and undergo a successful surgery. 

Ensure than the surgeon you choose is well practiced in this area and has a good track record with lower eyelid surgery.

During the surgery, the surgeon will remove the excess fat – the reason why your eyes are puffy, carefully from your lower eyelids. Skin tightening is not always necessary, but if it is, the surgeon will carefully perform that operation as well. 

Within a week to two weeks, people can expect to recover from the surgery. It is important to carefully follow post operative instructions as provided by your doctor. Failure to do that might lead to a delayed recovery. 

If you are someone who is fed up of looking tired all the time – if you want to open up your eyes more, or want to be more comfortable with your facial features – then Blepharoplasty is for you. 

It is important to remember that the general structure of your eyes will not be affected. By removing fat from your lower eyelids, you give yourself the chance to have a brighter, more youthful eyes.
