A person’s face always reveals their true age. This is true no matter how well a person takes care of their skin. They can delay some of the aging process by treating their skin gently and limiting sun exposure. However, nothing can stop the skin from becoming thinner as a person ages and loses facial fat. These two things together cause wrinkles and a general sagging of the facial skin.
There are several procedures that are available to help individuals who are dealing with saggy facial skin. Some individuals may be interested in skin tightening procedures when they first start noticing the problem. However, as a person continues to get older, more drastic steps may be needed for a person to look their best.
One area where individuals need to give special consideration is their eyes. As a person ages, their upper and lower eyelids begin to sag, giving them an older, more haggard appearance.
Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that removes sagging skin and excess fat from the upper and lower eyelids, and repositions the remaining fat deposits, tissue and muscle. In addition to helping a person look years younger and more refreshed, in some cases it can help a person to enjoy better vision. Some individuals who have very saggy upper eyelids can have their vision blocked or impaired. Eyelid surgery can fix this problem.
When you come in for your consultation, we will discuss the ins and outs of the blepharoplasty procedure. One of the biggest benefits that you will receive from blepharoplasty is that you will be able to feel great about your appearance. When you look in the mirror, you will no longer see tired eyes and saggy skin hanging around them. Instead, your skin will be tighter, and you will see fewer wrinkles and not have bags hanging under your eyes.
Something that individuals are concerned about is that they will need tons of downtime after the procedure. However, the healing process is relatively simple. Most individuals are able to return to their normal activities after 7 to 10 days.
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that can help you to look better and feel better. Knowing you have fewer wrinkles and a refreshed appearance can have a serious impact on your self-esteem. It can also have a positive impact on the way others view you. To determine if blepharoplasty is right for you, visit Hanemann Plastic Surgery. Our office is located in Baton Rouge.
