4 Benefits of Blepharoplasty Surgery
Added on 13th October 2020 in Blog
Your eyes are often perceived as one of the most beautiful features of your face and yet genetics or passage of time can often overshadow that beauty. When eyelids droop or ‘drape’ your eyes, it can often add years to your appearance or impact your general health.
A blepharoplasty surgery can often be a common procedure to help with these issues and make you appear younger. It involves removing excess skin or fat from your eyelids that often puffs out and adds weight to your eyelids.
Whilst the surgery has obvious advantages, there are also other benefits of blepharoplasty surgery that you might not be aware of. Here are 4 to consider.
Benefits of Blepharoplasty Surgery: Improve your vision
One of the most common reasons for patients opting for a blepharoplasty surgery is to improve their vision. Excessive upper-lid drooping and puffiness of the eyes can naturally impact your vision. Alternatively, you may have no thought to improve your vision but to simply opt for the surgery for an aesthetic reason. Either way, having the surgery can still make minor improvements to your vision.
Smooth your forehead
Often, when your eyelids feel heavy or feel as though they have excessive weight you may find yourself raising your eyebrows to improve your vision. If you do this repeatedly, it can contribute to fine lines occurring in your forehead.
One of the benefits of blepharoplasty surgery to this is that your habit of raising your eyebrows will be eliminated, with your forehead wrinkles eventually evaporating.
Youthful eye shape
Over time, excessive pockets of fat can develop around your eyes which can change the shape of your eyes. It can make them appear round and narrow making them appear more weighed down. Through a lower eyelid lift, it can help to remove this extra weight and provide your eye shape with a more youthful appearance.
Reduce migraine pains
As well as improving your appearance, there can also be health benefits to having a blepharoplasty surgery. Research has suggested that eyelift surgery specifically targets nerves that can improve your feelings of migraines and prevent them by at least 50 percent.
This isn’t a guaranteed benefit of blepharoplasty surgery but it has been known to be a side benefit to migraine sufferers that experience migraines regularly.
