4 Reasons You Should Consider Getting an Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)

Have you ever considered an eyelid lift? Commonly called blepharoplasty, the procedure is one of the most common cosmetic surgical procedures, according to the American Cosmetic Surgery Institute. An eyelid lift is an economical procedure that can produce amazing results.

The procedure itself is relatively simple and heals easily, producing noticeable and rejuvenating differences in the way a patient’s eyelids rest. This makes it one of the first procedures that most look to when hoping to stave off the natural effects of ageing.

There are several reasons why you might consider blepharoplasty, which we will outline below.

1. Lack of Upper Eyelid Folds

Some people have less elasticity in their upper eyelids than others. This can create eyelids that look less tight or lack the deep upper folds that are often associated with youth and beauty.

Blepharoplasty is a simple procedure that will produce subtle results which can be easily changed at a later date or combined with other facial procedures to create a more widespread facial lift.

2. Excessive Lower Eyelid Skin

Excessive skin on the lower eyelid can cause wrinkles, dry eyes, or unattractive sagging. During blepharoplasty, the surgeon follows the natural contour of the cheekbone and eye socket to create outward incisions which are then tightened. The result is less bagginess and a more wide-eyed, youthful appearance.

This type of blepharoplasty can create even more amazing results when combined with an upper eyelid lift. This creates a dramatic difference in how the eyes look, in some situations taking decades off the face.

3. Eye Puffiness

Blepharoplasty to remove puffiness in eyelids can be performed on either the top eyelid, the bottom, or even both at the same time. Puffy eyelids can happen when there are small deposits of fat under the thin skin of the eyelid.

To reduce eye puffiness, a trained surgeon would remove these small deposits of fat and then pull the skin tight. This is a great way to make your eyes appear wider. While this procedure is purely cosmetic, it can do a lot to boost a person’s self-esteem and personal image, making it necessary for those who struggle with acceptance of the appearance of puffy eyes.

4. Droopy Eyelids

Correction of droopy eyelids can be both cosmetic and medically necessary. In extreme cases of drooping eyelids, vision might be obstructed. In this case, upper eyelid blepharoplasty is sometimes necessary to tighten the eyelids. In this situation, a small incision is made in the fold of the eyelid. Fat is then extracted, and the eyelid is tightened, sometimes along with muscle tissue.

Goodbye Eye Bags, Hello Céleteque DermoScience Brightening Eye Tuck

I got these half moons under my eyes when I worked in a call center on a graveyard shift which turned to worse when I started blogging (and Facebook-ing). Yes, I’m one of those sleep-deprived zombies who used to be awake until the wee hours of the morning. I hate these eye bags so much because they make me look tired and old. I have tried many products and some natural remedies too such as tea bags and cucumber but nothing seems to help with my eye bags problem until I tried Céleteque DermoScience Brightening Eye Tuck plus Dark Circles Lightener.

When asked if I want to try Céleteque DermoScience Brightening Eye Tuck plus Dark Circles Lightener, I was skeptical. I don’t want to waste any more time just to know if a product will work or not. But then there was this voice inside me saying my eyes need it badly. Besides, I read that Céleteque DermoScience skin product line uses only derma grade ingredients so there won’t be any facial mayhem I guess.

On the first week of use, there was a very slight (almost unnoticeable change) but after almost 4 weeks of day and night use, I am very much satisfied with the results. The skin under my eyes tightened, eye bags are gone plus the crow’s feet and fine lines diminished. It is because of the Eyeseryl Tetrapeptide Complex which improves skin elasticity and effectively fights water accumulation.
