Eyelid surgery: Improving the windows to your soul

The eyes and the areas around the eyes say a lot about a person. People often believe that the eyes are the windows to the soul. Single eyelids, dark circles, and eye bags are frequently deemed unflattering and call unwanted attention to a person’s appearance. Therefore, many people have turned to eyelid surgery to improve and enhance their eyes for a more “awake,” youthful, and easier makeup application process.

Those who suffer from chronic dark circles and eye bag often do not feel tired, even if they may appear like it. Puffy eyes, sagging skin, and excess fat deposits can contribute to a “tired” look. Once removed, fat cells do not regenerate. Therefore, removing the accumulation of fat under the eyes can be a very long-lasting procedure. Surgery may or may not correct dark circles and is best answered by your surgeon. Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure aimed at helping patients achieves eyes that look “awake,” rejuvenated, and rested.

As we age, our eyes begin to droop and sag due to loss of elasticity and slowdown of collagen production. Eyelid surgery can treat loose and sagging skin around the eyes that may hinder vision in older individuals. In addition, the procedure can remove excess fatty deposits (eye bags) that may cause wrinkles in your lower eyelids. Wrinkles can be quite unsightly and make a person look older than they actually are. Turn back the hands of time with blepharoplasty in San Diego/Chula Vista today!

People often complain about the inconvenience caused by single eyelids (or monolids) because it makes applying makeup a hassle. Without a crease, individuals who have single eyelids may have to draw thicker eyeliner when applying makeup. Because of this reason, many individuals have turned to surgery to create a crease in the center of their eyelid. Upper blepharoplasty or Asian blepharoplasty is frequently requested by Asian patients to ease the makeup application process.

The eyes say a lot about us—from how we look on the outside and how we feel on the inside. After all, they say, “Our eyes are the windows to our soul” because when you look into a person’s eyes, you can see their pain, anger, sadness, and other emotions. What happens when those “windows” appear droopy, saggy, tired, and not reflective of your inner self? Thankfully, blepharoplasty is available to individuals who wish to improve their “windows” for an enhanced facial appearance.
