If you have watched the film, It’s Complicated, then you will remember the scene where Meryl Streep’s character, Jane Adler held her drooping eyelid up while stuck in an elevator with her ex-husband and his very young and attractive second wife in an attempt to hide her signs of aging. As hysterical as that scene was, many of us can relate and have encountered daily situations where we try to hide and conceal our fight with gravity. This is why we chose to highlight blepharoplasty in our blog today. Please read below to learn about this great procedure so you no longer have to walk around feeling self conscious about your droopy tired looking eyes.
Often, it is the eyes that first begin to show age on the face. A safe, well- concealed procedure can take years off the appearance of the face. Eyelid rejuvenation is done through incisions that are hidden in the natural lid crease or along the lid margin, and can often be accomplished using no external incisions, often without the need for significant anesthesia. Like a face lift, the procedure is relatively painless, and after a short period of recovery, the evidence of having a procedure disappears, leaving only a more youthful appearance to the eyes. Furthermore, advances in lasers and chemical peels have allowed some patients to get eyelid rejuvenation without the need for a surgical procedure.
This procedure is not just popular amongst women beginning to experience the signs of aging. Many men are having blepharoplasty due to the annoyances associated with their drooping eyelid. Many experience impaired vision, in conjunction with a tired aging look. One famous man who recently had this procedure is George Clooney. He has said that he now enjoys looking as alert, and youthful as he feels.
