The first facial feature we notice about another person is their eyes.
Our eyes are powerful communicators of emotions and thoughts every single day. They speak volumes – both intentionally and unintentionally – about who we are and what we feel. Being a centre of attention, we are able to notice the slightest changes in their appearance. As we age, signs of ageing begin to appear around our eyes first. This is due to the skin around our eyes being the most delicate on our body. The skin that forms your eyelids stretches, muscles underneath weaken, and fat surrounding the eye begins to bulge, causing sagging upper lids and bags under the eyes.
Ageing eyelids can affect a person’s appearance beyond just looking older, because so many emotions are expressed with our eyes, this can give the impression of being tired, sad or angry even when you are happy or feel well-rested. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, improves the appearance of your eyelids achieving a more refreshed and youthful look.
Sometimes, in addition to making you look older, excess skin tissue around your upper eyelids can result in visual disturbance, and removal of this tissue can lead to a significant improvement of your vision problems.
