If you’re serious about skincare, then you know that the skin around the eyes is the hardest to properly maintain. This incredibly delicate and sensitive area of the face is prone to wrinkles, crow’s feet, puffiness, discoloration and the dreaded, unsightly under-eye bags.

The fact that this area is so prone to problems is especially troubling considering how important it is in conveying emotion. Whether you’re happy, sad, confused or you just want to give someone an angry glare, the skin around your eyes plays a prominent role in conveying the proper emotion. So if the skin in this region is in any way compromised, it could make it difficult for people to read your face.

Given the importance of the area around the eyes, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that tens of thousands of people are undergoing cosmetic enhancement to help ensure that this region looks its best. Currently, blepharoplasty – or eyelid surgery as it’s more commonly called – is one of the most common surgical enhancement procedures in the country. In fact, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, cosmetic surgeons performed more than 200,000 eyelid procedures in 2015 alone.

What are the Benefits of Getting Eyelid Surgery?

With modern techniques, the experts at Enhanced Images can improve the skin surrounding your eyes in a number of different ways. With a blepharoplasty, surgeons can remove the appearance of wrinkles or crow’s feet, correct under-eye baggage, eliminate droopiness and reduce puffiness. Ultimately, the goal is to rejuvenate the skin around the eyes and give you a more youthful, radiant appearance.

What is Recovery Like?

With most eyelid procedures, recovery time is minimal. In the days following treatment, most patients experience pain, swelling and bruising around the eyes, as you might expect. Typically, it’s recommended that patients not exert themselves too much during the first two or three days following surgery in order to aid in the recovery process.

Following surgery, patients are sutured and fitted with bandages to help the skin to heal, and cold compresses are administered to help sooth the skin. Within about a week of the procedure, both the bandages and the stitches are removed and most patients are able to resume their normal activity levels. By the two week mark, almost all signs of bruising and swelling should be gone, leaving you with rejuvenated, youthful-looking skin.

Without a doubt, eyelid surgery has been gaining popularity in recent years because it works. If you’re interested in seeing what this versatile procedure can do for you, contact Enhanced Images online or give us a call today.
