Are you trying to look younger? Eyelid surgery might help you do just that. By tightening skin around your eyes, the procedure can give you a brighter appearance.
Your vision may improve, too. Excessive skin can push down on your eyelid and impair your sight, and some insurances might even cover the cost of surgery if that is the case. To find out if you could be covered, visit an ophthalmologist for a visual field exam.
Eyelid surgery may be right for you if:
- You are relatively healthy.
- You do not have any serious pre-existing eyelid conditions.
- You are trying to treat droopy eyelids, loose skin, puffy bags, or dark circles around your eyes.
Ideal candidates are usually in their 30s, as that’s the age skin starts to lose elasticity. The procedure is more popular as people age, especially with those in their 50s or 60s.
