They say the eyes are the window to the soul, so it can be disheartening when the signs of ageing start to affect how our eyes look. Sagging upper and lower eyelids can put years on us, make us look tired, and can even negatively influence our ability to wear make-up and more significantly, our vision.
During eyelid surgery (also known as Blepharoplasty), excess skin around the eyes is removed through small incisions placed in the crease of the eyelid. No visible scarring will be left, and the result is a wider, more youthful looking eye area. Mr Amir Nakhdjevani, chief surgeon at Bella Vou Cosmetic Clinic (www.bellavou.co.uk), spoke to us to outline 5 reasons why eyelid surgery is proving to be one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the UK today:
Top 5 reasons to have eyelid surgery
1. Long Lasting Results
Eyelid surgery will provide long lasting, even permanent results. This means there will be no more tears or tantrums because you cannot use your makeup correctly! If you’re looking for a long term solution then eyelid surgery may be the best option for you.
2.Removal / Repair of loose sagging skin around the eye
Repairing or removing skin around the eyes can benefit the patient both physically as well as mentally. Many of us can start developing medical problems such as damaged vision due to the sagging skin that covers the eye. Eyelid surgery provides a permanent solution!
3.Natural Looking results
One of the greatest benefits of eyelid surgery is that it provides very natural looking results! The scarring is very discreet and can completely disappear within weeks. Upper eyelid surgery scars are hidden within the crease of the eyelid and lower eyelid scars are hidden just below the lower eyelashes. Just think, you can look younger without anyone knowing that you have had surgery… and your secret will be safe with us!
4. Improved self-confidence
Eyelid surgery can help you to feel more youthful and and more comfortable with your facial features. If you are wanting to take a trip back in time and have the striking eyes you once had, then eyelid surgery is the answer for you!
5.Change to Lifestyle
If you are someone who’s droopy eyelids affect your day to day life, then eyelid surgery can provide you with permanent relief, making it possible to carry out normal daily activities without worrying about your eyes and how they look!
