What Is a Good Age for a Blepharoplasty?
The answer really depends on your facial structure and genetics. Some people benefit from getting this treatment done when they’re in their mid to late 20s, whereas others prefer to wait until late middle age to consider the treatment. It’s a good idea to check with our team for a consultation on your options. We can let you know if this treatment is right for your particular goals.
Regardless of age, the ideal candidates for this treatment are those who are experiencing unwanted aesthetic or visual challenges because of their hooded eyes. Some people are born with naturally hooded or deep eyes, and as they age, this feature gets much more pronounced. For those people, it’s a good idea to consider this treatment earlier in life.
People in their late 50s and 60s might notice that their skin looks thinner or droopier around their eyes. This is because as we get older, we lose more collagen in our bodies. A blepharoplasty treatment can turn back the clock and make the skin look fresher, dewier, and more youthful around the eyes. As an added benefit, many candidates find that they are also able to see much better once the treatment is completed.
This treatment targets the region right around your eyes. For many people, the eyes are one of their most important facial features. You tend to look into peoples’ eyes when you talk to them, and often we determine emotion or approachability simply by checking out the way that someone’s eyes look. Droopy, lined eyes can actually make you look a little less approachable or even angry. This simple treatment can make you appear more friendly and give you a more desirable aesthetic overall.
There are two types of treatment options available; upper eyelid and lower eyelid. You can also get both of them done. The upper eyelid treatment reduces the extra tissue on your eyelid, making your eyes look substantially less droopy. Lower eyelid treatments work to eliminate the bags or wrinkles under your eyes. Both of these treatments can make you look much more youthful and take away any excess skin or imperfections around the eyes.
What To Expect on Your Treatment Day
This treatment is very rapid, which is why it’s one of the most popular ones around. Your blepharoplasty will typically take about half an hour or 45 minutes. If you are doing both lower and upper lid treatments, your in-patient time will be longer. Talk to our team to learn what you can expect on your treatment day. Since we treat every patient as an individual, we are on-hand to listen to and address your specific needs and ensure that you are as comfortable as possible.
This treatment is fairly non-invasive, and you can go right back to the business of living your life the second that you walk out of our clinic. There’s really no recovery time needed.
Although everyone is different, there are some substantial, across-the-board benefits that you can expect from your blepharoplasty. These are just a few of the fantastic benefits that our patients have reported from their treatment.
Since this treatment involves lifting up your eyelids, you can certainly expect to have better vision after the treatment is done. For those getting this treatment for cosmetic reasons, better vision is an excellent perk that many people don’t expect. The level of vision improvement largely relies on how much sagginess you had around your eye area, to begin with, and whether you opted for upper, lower, or both upper and lower treatments.
Fewer Forehead Wrinkles
Save some money on Botox by simply having this treatment done. Many people find that they have fewer forehead wrinkles after their treatment is completed. This benefit is thanks to lighter eyes that don’t drag down the face as much. Additionally, people who have deeply hooded eyes often furrow their brows to increase their field of vision. Without the heaviness and droopy eyelids, you won’t need to bunch up your forehead to see clearly.
Over time, many patients notice that they continue to have fewer forehead wrinkles and that the upper part of their face looks better and brighter overall. Although this treatment is not a substitute for a facelift, it can undoubtedly have far-reaching results on other areas of your face.
More Vibrant Irises
Many people say that their irises look more vibrant and colorful after having this treatment done. Again, this perk is likely due to the fact that there is less skin and droopiness around the eyes. Your irises can absorb, and reflect, light, making them appear very beautiful. Some people even say that their eyes change color slightly after the treatment, or they notice more depth of color.
Of course, individual results will vary. The treatment is not the same as getting colored contact lenses, but you might notice this pleasant benefit nonetheless.
You won’t need to come back in to get a touch-up on your blepharoplasty. The results from this treatment tend to be very long-lasting, and you’ll enjoy the results for years. When you couple the longevity of these results with the fact that this treatment is a reasonably easy outpatient option that requires little to no downtime, you can really start to appreciate why so many people are opting for it.
Talk to our team about your specific goals. We will be able to let you know what you can expect from your individual treatment plan. We are also happy to answer any follow-up questions that you might have after the treatment is done.
Although this treatment is not a stand-in for migraine therapy or treatments, you might find the severity and frequency of your migraines decrease after having it done. The reason is quite simple; when you squint, you put more pressure on the nerves in your head, sometimes triggering unwanted migraines. As this treatment removes a lot of the skin and sagging from around your eyes, you squint less and don’t have to struggle as much to see.
More Youthful Eyes
Of course, the biggest benefit of having this treatment done is to look and feel younger. Over time, the skin around our eyes tends to get a lot thinner and droopier, creating hooded, shadowy eyes that reveal our age. This simple treatment can remove and tighten the extra skin, giving our eyes more elasticity and helping them to be more prominent and younger-looking. You can easily see how this treatment can take years off your face when you add in the benefits of fewer forehead wrinkles and brighter irises.
Each individual patient experiences unique benefits from this treatment. Our team will be happy to assess your particular situation and let you know what you can realistically expect on your treatment day. Our goal is to provide personalized service that allows you to look and feel your best. If you have any questions or concerns about what to expect, simply ask!
