Changing the Shape of Your Eyelids

The best part of any cosmetic or therapeutic plastic surgery procedure is getting to the finish line and enjoying the results. In the case of eyelid surgery, results are typically surprisingly dramatic considering the relatively minor work done during blepharoplasty procedures. This is not to say that eyelid lift procedures are less complex or less demanding; simply that there is much less surface area involved. But the eyes are the window to the soul, as they say, and any change to the appearance of the eyes make a big impact on the way we view the face.

Most patients will notice a dramatic decline in the amount of skin and tissue around the eyes. In other words, the eyes will appear larger, more youthful, and more vibrant. Therapeutic patients also often remark that they’re able to see better and more clearly after surgery. These results can dramatically transform the way that the face is perceived because the eye is so often a focal point of attention.

As a result, eyelid surgery can make the entire face look more youthful, refreshed, and even rejuvenated. In essence, the eyes become much more visible and, therefore, more expressive. Our patients enjoy the ability to emote again and to express what they’re feeling. Many patients seek eyelid surgery as they feel that the excess tissue around their eyelids make them look old, fatigued, and even sad. Once the eyelid surgery results are visible, patients tend to feel that their faces more closely resemble their actual feelings and moods.

In general, our patients have reported a wide variety of benefits associated with the results of their eyelid surgeries, including the following:

  • An improved field of vision
  • Some patients report that the world looks brighter after surgery (due to more light entering the eye)
  • The removal of bags around the eyes
  • The removal of lines and wrinkles around the eyes
  • A more youthful looking appearance to the eyes
  • The ability to be more expressive with the eyes
  • An overall more youthful and rejuvenated appearance to the face
  • Improved confidence and self-esteem
