The case of TIRED EYES: How to brighten your appearance
We all expect to look a little tired after a long day at work or a late night out. After the magic creams have all failed, there may be something you can do to improve the look of your eyes. Depending on your particular case, an eyelid lift alone, or an eyelid lift in conjunction with an eyebrow lift, may be the key to getting that youthful, refreshed look you’ve been hoping for.
There are several reasons the eyelid area may look tired and prematurely aged. The upper lid skin may become redundant and cause the dreaded hooding of the lateral eye, much like blinders on a horse. This is most commonly associated with the aging process and a “sagging” forehead region. Frequently an eyelid lift or blepharoplasty can achieve excellent results, however, in cases where the forehead has descended significantly, a brow lift may be needed for complete aesthetic correction.
Although we typically think of tired looking eyes as being a problem of “mature” people, tell-tale signs often appear in the early 20’s! Some of these issues include:
– -Dark circles under eyes
– -Crow’s feet – -Fat pads under lids, or “bags”
– -Upper lid “hooding”
Eyebrow lifts are also commonly done in conjunction with the eyelid procedure because they often address the underlying cause of the issue. If you are looking to get a well rested, and more alert look from your eyes, you also want to make sure it stands the test of time. An eyebrow lift smoothes out the wrinkles in the forehead and tightens the muscles.
Of course, as with all surgical procedures, it is absolutely essential to find an experienced surgeon that you trust to work with. Eyelid and eyebrow lifts are not a “one-size-fits-all” scenario and only your doctor should determine what approach will give you the best possible result.
