What would you say are some of the strongest and busiest muscles in your body? It is very likely that you are thinking of larger muscles, like your biceps or abs. And while these muscles are quite strong and are busy when you are active, these larger muscles are actually not as strong or busy as you may think. Your eye muscles are actually at the top of the list when it comes to the strongest and busiest muscles in the body. After you spend just one hour reading, it is estimated that your eye muscles will have moved almost 10,000 times. Considering how busy and strong these muscles are, it only stands to reason that the aging process and other factors will weaken them. For this reason, many are considering eyelid surgery.
A natural part of the aging process is a change in the condition of a person’s skin. This is something that also affects the skin on the upper and lower eyelids. The skin also stretches, causing it to become thin and wrinkly. The muscles in the eyelids weaken and fat pockets start to shift and expand in both the upper and lower eyelids. All of these things can lead to a person having eyelids that are droopy, baggy, and unattractive. An eyelid lift is a great way to address droopy and baggy upper and/or lower eyelids.
When some people think of an eyelid lift, they think of cosmetic surgery that is reserved for famous individuals. They think that it is something that only extremely rich individuals can spend money on. However, eyelid surgery provides a wide variety of benefits that average individuals can enjoy. In some cases, the procedure can even be done in order to help individuals who have their vision blocked because of excessive hanging skin on the upper eyelids.
Many have turned to fillers and muscle relaxers in order to maintain a youthful appearance and keep their eyelids in good shape. And while these treatments definitely have their place, almost everyone is going to come to a point where these minimally-invasive treatments just don’t cut it. Thankfully, eyelid surgery can give you long-lasting, dramatic results.
