Common Reasons for a Blepharoplasty

 In Eye Care

Blepharoplasty, or Eye Lid Surgery is a lot more common than you think. If you find yourself needing eye lid surgery, no matter the reason, you can trust the doctors at Utah Valley Eye Center in Provo to give you the best result and experience. Listed below are just some of the reasons why you would go forward with blepharoplasty surgery.

Vision Impairment

Drooping of the upper eyelid can be unpleasing from an aesthetic standpoint. It can also lead to genuine concerns about vision. The most common reasons for drooping eyelids are muscle weakness, nerve damage, or loose skin. These concerns may arise from injury, disease, normal aging, or may have even been present since birth. If it impedes your vison then eyelid surgery is a great way and an easy fix to get your vison back to where it should be.

Double Eyelids

Statistics have shown that Asian patients seek blepharoplasty at a higher rate than any other population. The end result most often desired in these cases is a “double eyelid.” The eyelid crease commonly occurring in Western culture has also made its way to Eastern nations as an ideal standard of beauty. However, this crease occurs naturally in only a very small percentage of the Asian population.

Youthful Appearance

The sagging of eyelids that occurs with age may not interfere with vision but often leads to a feeling of dissatisfaction with one’s appearance. Eyelid surgery provides a means by which to correct this issue. It can also address other issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging around the eyes. A skilled surgeon can provide a subtle, natural result that erase years without giving the impression that cosmetic surgery has been performed.
