Do your eyelids need a bit of rejuvenation? Here’s how a lid lift can help.

We all know that as we get older our skin starts to change. It doesn’t have the same bounce as it used to. This is because, from the age of 20, we start producing less and less collagen each year. Years of sun exposure can also speed up the aging process. There are topical products that can rejuvenate the appearance of mature skin, the effects won’t be dramatic, or long-lasting. This is where a lid lift can help.

What is a lid lift?

Known in medical circles as blepharoplasty, a lid lift is a surgical procedure performed on the upper, lower, or both eyelids. In it, the excess skin on the upper lids and puffiness on the lower lids can be reduced, leaving your face looking fresher. When performed by a board-certified ophthalmologist specially trained in plastic surgery around the eye area, the results are natural, and special consideration is given to the health and safety of your eyes.

Consider getting a lid lift? Here are three things you should know about this facial-rejuvenating treatment.

  1. It removes drooping eyelid skin

The eyes are the windows to the soul, they are also one of the first places to show signs of aging. This is why the lid lift is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures in the United States. It removes loose skin on the upper lid while lessening the appearance of under-eye puffiness as well.

  1. Lid lifts can offer overall facial rejuvenation

It isn’t just your eyes that will look more ‘awake’ and fresher after a lid lift – your whole face will reap the benefits! Because this surgery minimizes undesired wrinkles and puffiness around the eye area, it can give your skin an overall boost and a healthy, natural look and feel.

  1. It can improve your peripheral vision

Another reason that lid lifts are so great? One of the lesser-known (but equally-enhancing) uses for blepharoplasties is to restore peripheral vision to those who have excess skin hanging over and obstructing their upper field of vision.
