Heavy Eyelids - Eye Treatments Utah - Aesthetica Medical SpaWhen you have sagging eyelids it can often impair your peripheral vision so you have to turn your head to see. The hanging skin usually does the most cosmetic damage around the outer part of the eyelid. This causes a downward tilt and makes your eyes look sad or tired, while blocking your peripheral vision. This can be alleviated by a blepharoplasty. It will give you an open and awake look while simultaneously improving peripheral vision.
Drooping eyelids can make you look tired, depressed, stressed, and uninterested. This can in turn make you actually feel depressed, stressed, and uninterested, and that perpetuates the cycle. A blepharoplasty will create an alert, youthful, enthusiastic, engaging, happy, and healthy look. With a blepharoplasty the bags and wrinkles are removed from the lower eyelid and it give you a more relaxed look. You will start to feel better about yourself and in turn become less depressed, stressed, and uninterested.
Do you have to pull up your eyelid to put on makeup? You are pulling up loose skin that is hiding the crease that you want to put eye shadow on. It can even droop so low that it even rests on your eyelashes, making it hard to put on eyeliner. One of the main goals of blepharoplasty is to restore that crease and make it very defined. The incision is actually made in the crease so it can create a better line and hide the scar at the same time.
If you have any one of the symptoms listed above, it may be time for an eyelid lift. To find out more information about eyelid lifts or to set up a free consultation please visit Aesthetica Medical Spa in Lindon, Utah.
