Because you start losing natural tightening proteins like collagen and elastin as early as age 20, there’s a real likelihood that you can benefit from some kind of facial rejuvenation procedure as early as your 20s or 30s. And you wouldn’t be alone, with increasingly more people seeking surgery like facelifts and blepharoplasty to help take years off their aging appearance. Facial anatomy is genetic and some patients can have sad or tired appearing eyes which can cause them to look older than their age.
Here are a few reasons why men and women throughout Dallas-Fort Worth are seeking eyelid surgery with Dallas board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Azouz.
The Eyes Age Quickly, and Often Show the First Signs of Ageing
With delicate skin surrounding your eye area as well as composing your eyelids, the signs of aging such as skin laxity and wrinkles commonly appear to your eyes before other facial features. So, while other facial rejuvenation procedures may be held off until your 50s or 60s, eyelid surgery can help correct the early signs of aging as soon as they appear.
Why Is One Eye Bigger Than the Other?
Most people have one eye that appears bigger than the other. This is usually genetic and can be related to more sagging skin and wrinkles on one side of the face as compared to the other. Boney anatomy is not generally altered with eyelid surgery but loose skin can be tightened to provide better symmetry.
Eyes Convey A Wealth of Expressions
It can be argued that the eyes are the most important focal point of a person’s face, and the appearance of them can make a person look alert, youthful, and attractive. As the skin begins to get lax and start sagging, it can make someone look older than they actually are, or give others the impression that they’re not being paid attention to. It can also interfere with your resting demeanor, as puffy bags or dark circles under your eyes or loose skin above them may cause you to look tired or bored when you’re not.
By correcting the early signs of aging with personalized eyelid surgery, you can prevent these and other negative side effects that occur due to the prominent nature of the eyes and surrounding skin.
Results From Blepharoplasty are Long-Lasting
e-performed to enhance your appearance. Typically, results of eyelid surgery last over 10-20 years, taking many years off your appearance for the prime of your life. Keep in mind that every surgery is different for different people, so your individual results may vary. Taking good care of your eyes with high-quality or prescription skincare products and protecting your skin from UV light are ways to potentially lengthen the appearance of your results.
Eyelid Surgery Recovery is Not Hard
As a not very painful procedure, blepharoplasty recovery is not as uncomfortable or long as other plastic surgery procedures. When it’s able to be performed under local anesthesia with sedation, the recovery time is even shorter, with people going back to work just a few days after the surgery. Dr. Azouz utilizes special medications to minimize bruising and swelling. Eyelid surgery patients report very little pain even immediately after their procedure, and any discomfort can often be easily managed with over-the-counter painkillers.
