If you’re perfectly healthy but people keep telling you that you look tired or that you didn’t have enough sleep, it’s more likely that your eyes are the problem. Sagging or droopy eyelids can make you look tired and unhealthy. Having eyelid lift surgery, or blepharoplasty, can help reverse the problem and give you a new lease on life. You’ll no longer have to answer those irritating questions about your health anymore. But before you get the all-clear to have the procedure, you must first find out if the surgery is right for you.
It’s important to first understand that eyelid lift surgery isn’t done for cosmetic reasons only. Even though many patients seek the procedure to reverse aging signs, a surgeon may also recommend the procedure if you’re unable to see clearly due to folds created by sagging eyelids.
Here are some signs you may be a good candidate for an eyelid lift in the West Palm Beach area:
- Your upper eyelids appear puffy due to excess fat deposits
- You have sagging skin on your upper eyelids, creating folds that impair your vision
- You have fine wrinkles and excess skin on your lower eyelids
- You’re in good overall health
- You have realistic expectations about the results of the procedure
- You don’t smoke
Not everybody is fit for eyelid lift surgery, but talking to a qualified plastic surgeon is the best way to know if the procedure is right for you. Before your consultation with our team at Athena Plastic Surgery, you may want to prepare a list of questions to ask the surgeon. These questions will let our doctor know about your overall expectations of the procedure.
