Your eyes say more about who you are than any other feature on your face. The first place people look when they look at you is your eyes. Based on what they see looking back at them, they make long-lasting impressions about you. If you have sagging skin around your eyes, you may be giving an erroneous impression of yourself. Thankfully, you can address sagging skin around your eyes with eyelid surgery in Dallas.
Excess skin around your eyes makes you look older. It makes you look like you are tired. A lot of people who have excess skin around their eyes comment that people constantly ask them if they’re okay or if they’re tired, even though they feel fine and full of energy.
Another problem with having excess skin around your eyes is that it can negatively affect your ability to see. Some people in Dallas have so much excess skin around their eyes that the excess skin actually covers a part of their eyes. Eyelid surgery is a great way to tighten up or remove some of that loose and unwanted skin. Depending on the state of your eyes, you could have eyelid surgery on your upper eyelid, your lower eyelid, or both. The particulars of the procedure are going to vary from person to person because your situation is going to be uniquely different from the next individual who comes in to have this procedure done. The nice thing about eyelid surgery is that it can be performed as a standalone procedure, or it can be done in conjunction with other procedures designed to treat other issues.
Sagging skin is an unfortunate byproduct of getting older. When your skin starts to sag, it causes wrinkles. Gravity pulls on the skin. This is one of the reasons why people who have loose skin around their eyes notice that it starts to come down and cover their eyeballs. Or if the problem is with the lower eyelids, gravity may pull the excess skin down, exposing the whites of your eyes. What makes the problem more challenging is that in addition to excess skin, aging leads to a weakening of your muscles. So your facial muscles have a harder time keeping your eyelids where they should be. All of these things together serve to negatively impact the way that you look.
Eyelid surgery can be used to remove excess skin, remove excess fat, and tighten up loose muscles. The goal is to rejuvenate your appearance.
