For years, eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, has been the gold standard for addressing the signs of aging, such as drooping eyelids and bags underneath the eyes. However, eyelid surgery is not just for aging eyes and many patients in their 20s, 30s and 40s are now coming in to address other concerns they have when it comes to the appearance of their eyes. In addition, these younger blepharoplasty patients are receiving the benefits of early aging postponement.
Eyelid Surgery for Aging Eyes
For patients in their 50s, 60s and 70s looking to turn back the clock when it comes to the appearance of their eyes, eyelid surgery has been the procedure of choice for many years. Eyelid surgery can address loose or sagging skin on the upper eyelids that can occur as skin elasticity lessens with age. A lower eyelid procedure can help address the fatty deposits under the eyes that contribute to bags and dark circles, making you look tired or even angry. Eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the area around your eyes, revealing a more youthful appearance.
Eyelid surgery can address the signs of aging as well as genetic conditions and the effects of trauma to the eye.
Younger Blepharoplasty Patients
In the last few years, surgeons are seeing younger patients, in their 20s, 30s and 40s coming in for blepharoplasty to address eye concerns not related to aging but rather from genetics or eye trauma. These reasons can include:
- Hooded upper eyelids
- Under eyes bags
- Ptosis, or a drooping eyelid on one eye
- Monolid eyes, or eyes with no lid crease
Whether you are in the early stages of life or looking to help keep the signs of aging at bay, eyelid surgery can rejuvenate your eye appearance and help boost your self-confidence.
