If you have a lot of loose and hanging skin on your upper or lower eyelids, it is likely that you have looked at some of the cosmetic treatments and procedures that are available. There are a few non-invasive treatments that promise to tighten the skin and refresh your look. However, non-surgical options cannot really do that much for a person who already has moderate to severe loose and hanging eyelid skin. Eyelid surgery is a great way to address this problem. We would like to tell you about the benefits of this surgery and tell you who makes a good candidate for it.

The Benefits of Eyelid Surgery

This surgery can be used to address issues with both the upper and lower eyelids. The way the surgery is performed and where it is performed will depend on your particular needs. But it is good to know that you can have either just one area or everything worked on in order to get the best results.

In most cases, eyelid surgery is performed for cosmetic reasons. The only exception to that is the removal of skin on the upper eyelids when a person has such severe loose skin that it hangs down and blocks their vision. In this case, eyelid surgery would be performed for medical reasons.

You are going to enjoy a refreshed and more youthful look after the surgery. Loose and hanging skin can make you look tired and worn out. When the excess skin is removed along with fatty deposits that have shifted downward, you are going to be left with a more youthful face. Your eyes are going to tell the truth about you as opposed to always making you look exhausted. You are also going to notice that you feel a lot better about yourself. This may be just the confidence boost that you need to take advantage of new opportunities in life.

Are You a Good Candidate?

In order to benefit from eyelid surgery, you need to have an issue that this surgery can address. If you have dark circles or bags under your eyes, loose and hanging skin on your upper or lower eyelids, or fatty deposits that have shifted down under your eyes, you may be a good candidate for this procedure. In order to recover well after the procedure, you need to be in good health. If you are a smoker, you will need to quit several weeks before the procedure is scheduled.

You need to have realistic expectations for what eyelid surgery can do for you. It can definitely refresh your appearance and produce long-lasting results. However, it may not make you look 18 years old again. Take the time to research before and after photographs to get a realistic idea of how people look after the surgery is performed.
