What You Should Know about Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty or as it is more commonly known, as eyelid surgery, is plastic or cosmetic surgery to the eye to correct defects, deformities and disfigurements of an eyelid. Sometimes, people even do this to modify the aesthetic presence of an eye. Removal, excision or repositioning of excess tissue, fat and adipocyte cells is performed during this surgery. This is to remove any functional problems of an eyelid or cosmetic issues with the periorbita. In OKC, eyelid surgery is quite common, however, you need to find the most experienced doctors to take care of your eyes.

Here we will be discussing seven benefits of eyelid surgery:

  • It gives eyes youthful definition. The eye is the first place you start to notice aging. This surgery can fix drooping eyebrows, wrinkles, bulging fat, loss of bone volume etc. It removes excess tissue, tightens loose tissue, lifts up droopy tissue, weakens hyperactive muscles etc.

  • Similarly, getting this procedure can improve your vision. As you grow older, the upper eyelid tends to lose its elasticity and become weak. The first sign of a weak upper eyelid is wrinkles on the forehead. Before it is too late, remove excess fat, skin or fix droopy eyebrows and tighten the muscle and ligament, so you can open the upper eyelid more, which improves vision.

  • Aging skin eventually starts to go thin and ligaments turn weak. This hampers the smooth contour of the eyelid and creates bulges and depression leading to an aged look. Cosmetic surgery can fix all these things.

  • Eyelid surgery in OKC, or anywhere else, will correct drooping eyebrows. 

  • It can work on stubborn under eye bags or dark circles. These problems are a combination of three factors, including loss of bone and soft tissue muscle, excess eyelid fat and shrunken eyelid skin. This surgery can remove fat, redistribute fat, and remove excess skin to fix this.

  • As we age, the tough ligaments between skin and bone are more visible. It makes the grooves more prominent and eyelid surgery can assist with this problem.
