How Eyelids Impact Your Look (And What You Can Do About It!)

Blepharoplasty Denver
Even if you’re getting your “beauty sleep” and taking extra care of the delicate skin around your eyes, you may not be seeing the results you want. As time passes, the skin that protects us from the sun and elements begins to naturally lose its elasticity. As you age, the skin around your eyes gets looser and the muscles that support your eyelids slowly weaken, creating a tired, sagging appearance. Fat deposits around your eyes exacerbate the look of tired eyes. You may even experience difficulty with your peripheral vision. Despite what all those anti-wrinkle creams promise, they’re no match for heredity or the aging process. Thankfully, Mouchantat Plastic Surgery offers a procedure to help you treat this issue: eyelid surgery. Eyelid surgery, or better known as blepharoplasty in Denver, is a treatment where Denver plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Mouchantat gently removes unnecessary fat and skin from your upper and lower eyelids to correct tired, droopy, and baggy eyes.

Here are three issues women and men can treat with blepharoplasty:

1. Wrinkles – One of the top signs of aging are facial wrinkles, which first appear as fine lines and then deepen over time as the skin loses its natural firmness. Blepharoplasty in Denver helps by surgically removing excess skin to create eyes with a rested, more youthful look. 2. Puffy Eyes – With time, fat cells may accumulate around the eyes, and combined with the loosening of your skin, you’ll likely notice bags and puffiness below the eyes. Blepharoplasty can correct the look of baggy eyes by removing extra fat and skin, resulting in a firmer, rejuvenated appearance. 3. Droopy upper eyelids – The skin loses elastin with age, which is the tissue that helps keep skin tight and maintain firmness. As the muscles around the eye weaken and elastin is lost, the skin on your upper lids begin to droop and may even cause issues with your ability to see. Eyelid surgery makes the skin taunt by removing the extra skin and fat that causes the sagging. Take the next step to gaining a rested, renewed look with blepharoplasty.
