Are Your Eyes Making You Look Weary?

As we age, skin starts to sag and fat deposits accumulate in many places. Stomachs are no longer flat and upper arms are not as taught as they were in our 20s or 30s. However, fatty deposits and loose skin on the body does not make a person look older or worn out like they do when this happens to the upper or lower eyelids. Heredity plays are a role in who has sagging skin or who gets extra fatty deposits on eyelids; if your mom always looked haggard as she grew older, you may see the same thing happen to you.

There is good news; eyelid cosmetic surgery can make a significant improvement in how others see you when they look into your eyes. For healthy individuals, cosmetic eyelid surgery is a relatively minor cosmetic surgery with a short recovery period and indiscernible scarring. The skill and experience of the surgeon also plays a major role; browse for more information about Dr. VanPutten’s philosophy, skills and dedication to providing superior care to his patients.

If people often comment on how tired you look despite getting enough sleep, your eyelids could be making you look overtaxed and older than should look. You may find your boss hesitant to assign important projects to you because you appear overworked. Upper eyelid surgery, also known as an upper blepharoplasty procedure, can eliminate the overhanging skin that makes you appear older. Lower Blepharoplasty procedures will eliminate the puffy look of your lower lids that makes you appear run-down.

Consider asking about dermal fillers or a brow lift if you also have fine lines near your eyes or a drooping brow. It’s often easier to have several procedures done at once if you’re in good health. Ask for a free cosmetic consultation to see which procedures will give you a boost of confidence that comes from looking your best.
