Why Get Eye Lift Surgery?
All of us at some point start to see the signs of aging and affects of gravity on our skin. As we go through life and grow older and wiser, gravity begins to pull and stretch our skin. At the same time, collagen production (an abundant protein in charge of making connective tissue) in the body begins to decrease, causing skin to loose elasticity. This lack of elasticity and the pull of gravity is what create those eye bags and folding skin above and below the eye that are the bane of many peoples existence.
Factors such as smoking, excess sun exposure, and excess alcohol consumption can make your body lose collagen quicker. Still, almost no one can escape the inevitable.
While this process is natural, that doesn’t mean you need to sit down and accept it.
How it works
While Botox and fillers can help fight the signs of aging associated with fine lines and wrinkles, excess skin around the eyes typically can’t be effectively addressed by these two procedures alone.
Eye lift surgery (also known as Blepharoplasty) is a popular way to fight signs of aging effectively. It is typically performed in an outpatient center. During the procedure your surgeon removes excess skin from around the eyelids. Blepharoplasty is performed with IV under local anesthesia.
There are several benefits and things you may not know about eye lift surgery.
For one, you may not have to pay out-of-pocket to get this procedure done. This is because eye lift surgery may be covered by some medical insurance plans.
It turns out, excess skin around the eyes can actually make it harder for you to see. If this is true for you, insurance may very well help cover at least a bit of the cost of your surgery.
In addition to helping you see better, eye lift surgery can also help you look and feel better too!
Droopy eyelids can make you look tired and can age you immensely. When you opt for eye lift surgery, you give your look a boost, helping you not only look younger, but more alert and awake as well.
