Are There Non-Cosmetic Benefits To Eyelid Surgery?


If you are interested in Eyelid Surgery in Melbourne, Florida then you may wonder whether there are non-cosmetic benefits to this procedure or if it's purely used for cosmetic reasons only. Although most commonly performed for cosmetic reasons, Blepharoplasty also has functional benefits that can improve peripheral vision. Blepharoplasty can help with the following: Sagginess of the eyelids, bulging and bags around the eyes, tired or sad appearance, field of vision and some lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Although eyelid surgery is often performed on its own, procedures Dr. Ross Clevens recommends including a browlift , facelift , or skin surfacing to help you achieve the best results.

Blepharoplasty or "eyelid lift" is a group of surgical procedures that Dr. Clevens performs to improve the form and function of the eyes by modifying the anatomy of the surrounding structures. Blepharoplasty commonly is often done for both the upper and lower eyelids. In blepharoplasty, fat is removed or repositioned, muscle is reduced or tightened, tendons are supported and skin is removed. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is among the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures.

Every year, over 100,000 men and women choose cosmetic eyelid surgery to improve their appearance. Droopy upper eyelids and bulging lower eyelid bags form over time. A change in appearance around the eyes is among the first signs of aging and many people develop some sagginess in their early thirties. Chronic allergies and sinus conditions may cause the eyelids to swell, encouraging the development of a tired or sad facial appearance. In addition, sun exposure, heredity, excessive squinting, habitual eye rubbing, and the use of contact lenses promote sags and bags around the eyes. In some individuals, these conditions may even impair your vision.
