You may be the employer or employee who always looks tired even after a good night’s sleep. Droopy or puffy eyes can drag your entire face down and make you appear like something is not going well for you, when that’s not actually the case. Fatty deposits, excess skin, or the muscle tissues of the upper or lower lids can obstruct your vision and/or make your eyes look aged. Blepharoplasty is done to remove the extra skin and fat from the upper and/or lower lid to eliminate the bagginess. The procedure not only has cosmetic benefits, but it also improves the overall health of your eyes.
1. Your vision improves because eyelid obstruction is removed.
2. You may experience relief from migraines caused by strained vision.
3. The fine lines on the lower lid can disappear, and the eye bags become less visible.
4. It can help you achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
- Good health
