Your eyelids handle a variety of essential functions that help protect and ensure the continued health of your eye. When issues with your eyelids begin to pop up, they can not only affect those processes but they can also cause a variety of bothersome cosmetic problems. Thankfully, through the power of eyelid surgery, there are a variety of aesthetic issues that can be corrected with ease.
Eyelid surgery can be conducted on both the upper and lower eyelids and is commonly done in conjunction with other treatments such as face lifts, brow lifts, and skin resurfacing treatments. However, it can also be conducted on its own to great benefit.
The most common reasons that people consider eyelid surgery include, but aren’t limited to:
You Have Pronounced Bags and Dark Circles Under Your Eyes
Bags and black circles under the eyes can be caused by a variety of factors. But as it relates to your eyelids, these unwanted bags and rings are often caused by the weakening of tissue and muscle around the eyes that cause drooping and sagging eyelids.
You Have Excessive Wrinkles and Sagging Skin Around Your Eyelids
Speaking of sagging eyelids, that itself is a common reason for seeking eyelid surgery. Sagging eyelids can cause dissatisfaction with how you look and, in more extreme cases, can even begin to cause vision problems. Likewise, eyelid sagging can cause excessive wrinkles to appear around your eyes in general.
You Have a Genetically Tired or “Puffy” Look To Your Eyelids
The concerns mentioned above can occur for reasons such as age or lifestyle habits. However, some eyelid issues may be caused by inherited genetic factors. Your genetic disposition to certain physical qualities plays a significant role in the shape and size of your eyelids, as well as their susceptibility to various conditions. With eyelid surgery, any natural problems you have with the appearance of your eyelids can be accurately addressed and corrected.
