Your eyes can give so much impressions even though you are not saying a word. They are capable of conveying alertness, tiredness, youthfulness, melancholy, cheerfulness and exuberance, to name a few.
Although applying makeup can hide minor inconsistencies around your eyes, they do not usually provide total and long-term satisfaction.
An effective remedy for puffy eyes is called blepharoplasty or eye lift surgery. The procedure removes excess skin, muscles, or fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids to give you a younger looking appearance.
Eyelids drooping is another popular reason why people would opt for an eye lift surgery. Ageing is a very common cause of droopy eyelids. Diabetes, stroke, Horner syndrome, and nerve injury can also cause eyelids to droop.
Most patients find an eye lift surgeon by means of referral. Others looks for a surgeon that offers the cheapest package. But more important than the price is your satisfaction. Therefore, you should look for a surgeon you can trust and help you make informed decisions.
An eye lift is performed under local or general anaesthesia. If you choose to have local anaesthesia, you will remain awake throughout the procedure but the area around your eyes were numb. This type of anaesthesia is given either orally or intravenously. A general anaesthesia, on the other hand, puts you to sleep during the entire duration of the surgery. This is usually given if the procedure involved is more complicated.
After the anaesthesia has been administered your surgeon will create incision lines that are appropriate to the type of eye lift technique being carried out. Generally, the incisions are designed to make the scars well hidden within the natural structures of the eyelid region. The entire procedure may take 1 to 3 hours.
