Why Eyelid Surgery is So Popular
Hundreds of thousands of people elect to have blepharoplasty each year. Also called eyelid surgery, this restorative procedure can take years off of your face and restore your ability to see without puffy tissue obstructing your view. Dr. Bernard Shuster is proud to perform blepharoplasty in Hollywood, FL.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, eyelid surgery was the second most-popular cosmetic procedure in the U.S. after breast augmentation in 2020. There were more than 325,000 blepharoplasties performed last year. Why does this procedure remain a favorite? Here are some of the reasons:
- It’s a straightforward, often-performed, minimally invasive procedure. Incisions are made either on the inner surface of the lower eyelid, along the lower lash line, or in the natural fold of the upper eyelid. Fat and skin are reduced and repositioned, and the incisions are closed. Discomfort after the procedure is minimal and most people are back at work within one week.
- Blepharoplasty produces great results. By reducing puffy, hooded upper eyelids, or sagging lower eyelids and bags of fat, your face will generally look more open and approachable. Many people are distressed by hearing from others that they look tired or frustrated. Aging eyelids have this tendency to communicate emotions we aren’t actually feeling. After eyelid surgery, you can feel more confident with a revitalized facial appearance that looks natural, never fake or overly artificial.
- The results are long-lasting. While you cannot stop the aging process or the continued effect of gravity, blepharoplasty is overall a lasting procedure. Many years down the road you may notice the effect of aging as some recurrent eyelid sagging or wrinkling, but your upper facial area will look younger than it would have otherwise.
The only way to know if it will be right for you is to consult Dr. Shuster. He wants to make sure you know all of your options for achieving the rejuvenation you are interested in.
