Why Eyelid Surgery might be Right for You

 In Eye Care

Have you been contemplating eyelid surgery? Consulting with the doctors at Utah Valley Eye Center in Provo can help you in determining if eyelid surgery is right for you. There are several factors you should take into consideration before having eyelid surgery. To help you in making the right decision we have gathered some reasons why eyelid surgery might be right for you.


Drooping Eyelids

If you have noticed that your eyelids are droopy, so much so that it is impairing your eyesight, eyelid surgery could be a good option for you. This will help to ensure that vision is not obstructed by unnecessary skin getting in the way. An additional benefit of this surgery is that you will have tightened skin that will help to erase years from their look. Eyelid surgery for drooping eyelids is typically done on the upper eyelids. Small incisions are made into the natural folds of the eyelid to allow the fat to be extracted. The surgeon can also tighten loose or sagging muscle tissue along the upper eyelids before stitching the incision site closed. This can help to improve vision as well as delay any associated medical problems including damage to the eye itself.


Puffy Eyes

For more of a concern of appearance rather than a problem with eyesight, you can have eyelid surgery to reduce the puffiness in your eyes. Surgery for this reason can be performed on top eyelids, lower eyelids or both at the same time depending on the person’s specific circumstances. Removing excessive fat deposits from the lids and tightening the skin can make eyes seem less puffy and create a significant improvement in the patient’s happiness with their appearance.


Lack of Eyelid Folds

A blepharoplasty procedure can create eyelid fold lines on upper eyelids for patients that do not have this line or want to have a more noticeable eyelid fold line. This will also create tighter, lifted skin throughout the area that will help to achieve a more youthful appearance. This eyelid surgery procedure is also done for appearance purposes but can result in you having the confidence you deserve.
