What are the Benefits of Eyelid Surgery?

Lubbock plastic surgery

I passed my friend in the store one day, and we stopped to chat. She still had her sunglasses on while we were inside the store. I didn’t want to pry, but then she told me she was wearing her glass because she had just had surgery on her eyelids and didn’t want people to see the bruises. She took off her glasses and showed me her eyes. I couldn’t even tell she had the bruises. She said her eye doctor had been telling her for years that she should have her eyelids lifted, and she finally did. Now, she could see again.

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelids. You can elect to have the surgery for either functional or cosmetic reasons. The surgery is done on an outpatient basis often using local anesthetics with sedation.

Like my friend in the grocery store, in Lubbock plastic surgery on your eyelids may be right for you. Here are a few of the benefits of this eyelid surgery:

  • Improved vision

Apart from cosmetic results, improved eyesight may be reason alone to pursue an eyelid lift. Significant drooping of the upper eyelid can impair vision. A slight lift of the brow and upper lid can remove the extra skin which causes the droop. Not only can this improve your line of sight, but some patients find that this correction relieves a strain in the brow muscles from constantly trying to raise the upper lid.

  • Bags and lines

By lifting the upper and lower lids, early signs of aging are corrected. Fine lines and bags around the eyes give a fatigued look even when you are well rested. To enhance the results of this lift, you can also include a skin rejuvenation treatment like a chemical skin peel or medical facial to provide additional smoothing of the lines or to reduce the visibility of dark circles.

When coming to see Dr. Rowley in Lubbock, plastic surgery on the eyelid for either functional or cosmetic reasons will result in an overall refreshed appearance. Blepharoplasty can give your entire face a younger, healthier look. This procedure enhances the shape and appearance of your eyes which can have a noticeable impact on your image as a whole.

Consider the Benefits of Getting a Facelift

Your identity as an individual begins with your face, and if aging takes a toll on your face and gives you a worn out or tired look, it can also take a toll on your confidence levels. While there are many benefits of a facelift plastic surgery, Lubbock surgeon Dr. Rowley knows that beyond restoring a more natural and youthful look, this surgery allows your personality and confidence to radiate from your face as you enjoy the years to come.

Some of the benefits of a facelift include:

Repairing loose skin

Aging causes the elasticity in the skin to relax leading to that saggy-skin appearance we see over time. A facelift can carefully trim and tighten the skin on the face to restore the youthful and natural look you desire. This process should not overly tighten the skin, causing a “pulled” look to the face, but simply lift.

Tightening facial muscles

The superficial musculo-aponeurotic system (SMAS), or in other words the underlying structures of your face, will also loosen and sag due to weakness from aging. While trimming and lifting skin during this plastic surgery, Lubbock surgeon Dr. Rowley will first tighten and correct this underlying structure to support a more pleasing configuration. This restructuring will also help reduce the strain on your skin over time and results of the procedure will last longer.

Improving facial contours

A facelift will restore youth to your neck, cheeks, and eyes and give you a more attractive jawline. This surgery can be paired with other procedures as well like liposuction in the neck or jowl area to turn back the clock on this incredibly important part of your identity–your face.

Top Reasons to Getting a Facelift

As we get older, time and gravity aren’t always kind to our skin of our faces and give us a tired, old appearance. Both men and women will start to notice less definition around their neck and chin areas. Your face can become more droopy and tired looking. Sometimes deep wrinkles will appear around our noses or mouths. Dr. Jane Rowley is an expert in the area of facelifts with the goal to help people in Lubbock have a more youthful look but maintain a natural appearance.

  • Improves the Appearance of Muscle Tone and Skin Elasticity

Over time, your skin and muscles lose their elasticity and tone. This sagging appearance can make you look and feel old and tired. Tightening the skin and the superficial muscle layer under the skin helps to restore a younger-looking appearance.

  • Improves Facial Wrinkles and Deep Creases Around Mouth and Nose

You have some non-surgical options intended to smooth out wrinkles on your face. But, some wrinkles are too deep and can only adequately be helped with a facelift. This procedure is the gold star treatment for deep creases and wrinkles that form because of muscle tone loss and saggy skin.

  • Improves Definition in Neck and Chin

The sagging in your face continues to your chin and neck. A facelift can also target your neck and chin giving your face a more sculpted look. Tightening the skin on your neck and taking away the excess fat in the area of your jowls provides you with a more defined neck and chin.

The overall appearance of your face, chin, and neck is lifted with better skin and muscle tone to give you a younger-looking appearance. When considering a facelift for the right reasons, you can have an improved self-image leading to greater confidence. You can expect the results of a facelift to last 5-10 years.
