Perhaps you’ve been considering a cosmetic procedure to improve the appearance of your eyes, which have become more old or tired looking than you’d like. Yet, for a plethora of reasons, you’ve hesitated – perhaps because you want to learn about others who have already undergone such a procedure with success.
As such, you might be surprised to learn that the appearance of your eyelids could be heavily contributing to an aged appearance. The tissues around the eyes begin to show the effects of aging through ptosis, which is essentially the drooping or sagging of excess skin around the eyes.
Droopy eyelids can affect one eye or both at the same time, making you appear stressed, tired, medicated, or older. Droopiness can also make it difficult to keep your eye(s) open; in only one eye, it can make it look as if the eyes are not the same size.
What is Blepharoplasty?
Also known as an eyelift or eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat in the eyelids and tighten or lift the lids for a more youthful look that helps restore self-esteem. The surgery is delicate and should only be trusted to a trained, experienced, and highly-skilled oculoplastic surgeon.
The general goal of the procedure is to restore the eyelid or eyelids to their normal position, though it depends on each patient’s given condition. The surgery normally takes an hour or less, depending on the extent of the excess, sagging skin.
To learn how effective a blepharoplasty is and how it can help you sustain a more youthful appearance, here are 11 celebrities who’ve undergone the procedure with good results.
