Cosmetic eyelid surgery is recommended for anyone who suffers from puffy, sagging or tired-looking eyes – whether due to excess skin on the upper eyelids or to dark, hollowed under-eye circles (called lipoptosis) – and can therefore be used to correct both the upper and lower eyelids. It is also recommended if your eye shape no longer suits or pleases you. Lastly, if you’re seeking treatment because your eyelids are naturally droopy as a result of a genetic predisposition, you will undoubtedly be satisfied with the results offered by this procedure.
Blepharoplasty is suitable for both men and women. Contrary to what you may believe, eyelid surgery in men requires the same degree of finesse as that in women. The fundamental difference lies in the horizontality and thickness of the eyebrows in men, a feature that requires advanced skills on the part of the surgeon.
An alternative solution: Non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation
If, for whatever reason, the traditional surgical eyelid correction is not right for you, there is another option that you may want to consider. Due to the progress made in the field of aesthetic medicine in the past few years, a new non-invasive eyelid rejuvenation treatment is now available. This treatment, known as the plasma lift, is performed using a small, specially designed instrument with a thin metal probe and fine foam tip. The instrument delivers a small electrical arc (called a plasma arc) which tightens the eyelid skin and rejuvenates the eye area – all without the need to resort to surgery. The plasma lift is particularly effective when the treatment is sought out early.
