Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) in Dominican Republic
The eyes are the window to the soul, but they also show your age. After years of sun exposure, squinting, and applying makeup or moisturizer, it’s all too easy for the eyelids to become a little looser than before. Both men and women can develop puffy or saggy eyelids that affect how they look and how they see. Even if your eyelid aging issue isn’t getting in the way of your eyesight, it’s still worth considering a quick surgery to tighten up this area.
Is This Plastic Surgery Right for You?
Despite common marketing claims, there are no creams or cold treatments that can permanently shrink or tighten the eyelids. Only a surgery known as blepharoplasty can help in the long run. This surgery is often required for practical reasons so that the patient’s eyesight isn’t obstructed by hanging skin. However, it’s also available as a completely elective plastic surgery as well. Many patients choose it for a more youthful look that isn’t very obvious at all. A mild approach to tightening the skin over the eyes creates an open and friendly appearance without limiting your facial expressions in any way. For the majority of patients, an eyelid lift is a simple way to reverse the effects of aging.
Theres More Than Just the Upper Eyelids
While many plastic surgeon recommendations start with the upper eyelid, we can also work on the area under the eye as well. Eye bags form with age as the skin loses elasticity, but they tend to make you look tired. A complete approach to this surgery will include adjustments to the upper and lower eye areas as needed. The goal is to reduce puffiness, looseness, sagging, and hanging skin by tightening up the skin around the entire eye. This creates a youthful, well-rested appearance that may make your eyes look more alert as well. The incisions are easily hidden in the crease of the upper eyelid and the inside of the lower eyelid. The results are natural and impossible for anyone but a plastic surgeon to detect. Recovery is quick and easy, especially when compared to more extensive forms of plastic surgery that affect more of your body.
