6 reasons why you should consider eyelid surgery


If you have tired- or sad-looking eyes, then you may be considering ways to rejuvenate the appearance of your eyes. Also know as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery is an effective way to provide long-lasting results and improve the appearance of your eyes.

Here are six reasons why you should consider eyelid surgery.

  1. You won’t see scars. One of the reasons why this surgery is so popular among men and women alike is the fact that the incisions on upper eyelids can be hidden within the crease of the eyelid, and the scar that remains will fade over time and become hidden. Incisions on the lower eyelid are made below or behind the lash line, which means no visible scarring there as well.
  2. Your eyes are the focal point of your face. Men and women with aging, tired-looking eyes who have good tone in their facial muscles will benefit from eyelid surgery.
  3. You are over the age of 40. Most men and women over the age of 40 can benefit from eyelid surgery since the skin loses its elasticity and firmness as we age, making them look older and tired.
  4. Pain is minimal and recovery is quick. Pain after surgery can be controlled with over-the-counter pain medications. Cold compresses can help with discomfort and swelling as well. After a week, stitches are removed, at which time many patients will return to work. Any bruising and swelling will continue to subside over the next few weeks, revealing your full results.
  5. It can help with vision. If you have drooping or sagging eyelids, you may not realize how the extra skin hanging over your eyelid is affecting your vision. In addition to cosmetic reasons, many patients turn to eyelid surgery for this functional reason alone.
  6. It has a high patient satisfaction rate. Eyelid surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures because it offers great results with little pain and recovery that isn’t very difficult.

These are just a few of the many reasons why you should consider eyelid surgery. To learn more, schedule a consultation with Dr. Weinstein by calling (908) 879-2222.
