Would you like to eliminate those droopy eyelids that are making you look tired all the time? If you answered yes, then ask your doctor about blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). It’s a well-known fact that blepharoplasty will correct hooded and droopy eyelids, and rejuvenate your face (learn more). That’s the reason why many people with the condition are choosing to have this eyelid surgery done.
How blepharoplasty corrects hooded and droopy eyelids
Loose, droopy skin on the upper eyelids often hides the natural contours, giving the eyes a weary appearance. Blepharoplasty refashions the eyelids by eliminating excess skin, and firming the skin around the eyes. This enhances the natural appearance of the eyes, so that they look more alert and rested.
Hooded eyelids are a defining feature for many people of Asian ancestry, as they often don’t have a crease or fold in the upper eyelids. Some of them choose to undergo what is known as a ‘double eyelid lift,’ in order to correct this. An Asian eyelid lift creates a minimal crease in the upper eyelids, thereby eliminating the problem of hooded eyelids.
An eyelid lift is a minimally invasive procedure that needs only a short recovery time. It is generally performed as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia, or local anesthesia with sedation in some cases. The operation takes about 1 to 2 hours. There will be some pain and swelling post-op, but patients can resume light activities within 2 days.
