Who Is a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

Facial flaws can be frustrating as you age, with lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin emerging as the years pass. But when droopy eyelids or undereye circles exist, they can give you a worn and older appearance or make you look permanently tired.

That’s why it’s no surprise that thousands of people seek undergo eyelid surgery to look more youthful, alert, and radiant.

Is Blepharoplasty Right for You?

Right off the bat, you should take a few considerations before choosing eye lift surgery. Suitable candidates will fit the following initial requirements:

– Good overall health with no medical condition to prevent your body from proper healing
– No serious eye conditions
– Non-smokers
– Realistic expectations

An eyelid lift cannot prevent the natural aging process from occurring and is not a permanent solution to skin laxity. However, it can significantly improve your appearance by brightening your expression. It also serves a functional purpose of removing hanging upper lids that obstruct your line of sight.

If you have loose skin on your upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, you may want to consider blepharoplasty. Here are factors that prompt ideal candidates to consider an eyelid lift:

– Sagging skin that blocks your vision
– Upper eyelid puffiness caused by fat deposits
– Undereye circles and bags
– Droopy lower eyelids
– Excess skin and wrinkles

A board-certified plastic surgeon should perform your eyelid lift. This surgery can correct multiple issues around your eyes, except:

– A heavy brow that creates hooded eyes
– Dry eye, eye infections, or minor eye diseases
– Uneven eye position
– Crow’s feet
