There are certain aspects of your appearance that are going to cause other people to make assumptions about you. This can happen no matter how old you are, but it is more likely to occur as you get older. One example is having bags under your eyes. When you have a lot of skin hanging on your upper eyelid and your lower eyelid, other people are going to think that you look tired and worn out. Even if you do not feel that way, people are likely to ask you why you are so tired.
If you would like to rejuvenate your appearance, an eyelid lift may be right for you. This is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin from around the upper and lower eyelids. Most individuals who have this procedure performed look younger after the procedure. Also, they look a lot more refreshed.
An eyelid lift can be performed on both the upper and lower lids or just one of them. When an eyelid lift is performed on the upper eyelids, it removes excess skin that hangs over the eyes. In some cases, this can even block a person’s vision. So, it is performed for cosmetic reasons as well as medical reasons.
When the procedure is performed on the lower eyelids, excess tissue, fat and skin can be removed. In some cases, muscles may be tightened. It all depends on the unique situation.
