Your eyes say a lot about who you are and how you feel. When you look in the mirror, would you say that your eyelids are telling the truth about you? Unfortunately, the aging process can take a toll on the skin around your eyes. We would like to tell you how eyelid surgery in the RGV/Rio Grande Valley area can help you look better than ever.
The Benefits of Eyelid Surgery
One of the primary benefits of having this procedure done is restoring the youthful definition that you once had around your eyes. It is common for individuals to notice how the aging process is affecting their appearance on their upper and lower eyelids. The skin in these areas becomes thinner as a person ages. In addition to this problem, bulging fat, the loss of bone volume, increasing wrinkles, and excess skin all work together to create an appearance that looks tired and haggard. When eyelid surgery is performed, the skin can be tightened, droopy tissue can be lifted, muscles can be tightened, and excess fat can be removed. All of these things do wonders to a person’s appearance.
While this procedure is usually done for cosmetic reasons, it can also have medical benefits. The muscles in body, particularly around the eyes, can become week. It is kind of like how a rubber band will lose its elasticity over the years. This can cause hanging skin to block a person’s vision. When a person has an eyelid lift performed, this problem can be addressed. The muscles will be tightened, which will address the problem of blocked vision.
Are you dealing with dark circles and bags under your eyes? It is common for individuals to have dark circles under their eyes because of eyelid fat that bulges, the loss of soft tissue and bone under the eyes, and the skin under the eyelids shrinking, causing a darkening of the skin. When eyelid surgery is performed on the lower eyelids, it can eliminate those under eye bags and dark circles.
As you have gotten older, you probably have noticed that it is more difficult to apply eye makeup to your upper eyelids. It is hard to apply eye shadow and liner to skin that is thin and wrinkly. After you have this surgery performed, you are going to notice that your eye makeup applies a lot easier and looks much better.
Are You a Good Candidate?
In order to benefit from eyelid surgery, you need to be dealing with an issue that affects your upper or lower eyelids. If you have tear troughs, under eye bags, under eye dark circles, or droopy upper and lower eyelid skin, you likely qualify for this procedure.

The surgeon will look at your overall health and the condition of your upper and lower eyelids. Based on this information, the surgeon will be able to give you a realistic idea of what the surgery can do for you.
