Eyelid surgery returned to the top 5 most popular cosmetic surgery procedures, according to the latest figures released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Its popularity was driven by the ‘Baby Boomer’ cohort – men and women aged between 55 and 70 – who claimed over half of all facial rejuvenation procedures. Eyelid lifts were also the most popular facial procedures with men.
Your eyes are one of the first things that people notice about you, so it’s no surprise you may be more conscious of any changes that distract from making a good initial impression. Here are five reasons why you might also want to consider a blepharoplasty.
1 You are tired of looking tired
The eyes are often referred to as the windows to the soul, and unfortunately, they are also one of the first areas to show signs of ageing. Blepharoplasty surgery can help revitalise your appearance by addressing sagging eyelids, puffiness, and excess skin, giving you a more refreshed and youthful look. This procedure removes excess fat and tightens loose skin, creating a smoother, firmer eye contour that can take years off your face.
2 You can’t see as clearly as you used to
Beyond its cosmetic benefits, blepharoplasty can also enhance your vision. Drooping or sagging eyelids can obstruct your field of vision, causing discomfort and potentially leading to vision problems. By addressing these issues, an upper blepharoplasty not only improves aesthetics but can also contribute to better eyesight, allowing you to see the world more clearly and comfortably.
3 You are seeking a boost in self-confidence
For many individuals, the visible signs of ageing can take a toll on self-esteem. An upper or lower eyelid lift can provide a significant boost in confidence by restoring a more youthful and vibrant appearance. Feeling good about the way you look can have a positive impact on various aspects of your life, from personal relationships to professional opportunities. Confidence is key, and blepharoplasty can be a powerful tool in helping you reclaim it.
Testimonial for Dr Nick Koutroumanos
I can’t thank him enough for solving a problem that I had become very self-conscious about for some time and had impacted my confidence socially. I would highly recommend Dr Koutroumanos to anyone considering eyelid surgery.
4 You want long-lasting results
Non-surgical interventions, such as tear trough filler, are increasingly popular but the results are temporary. While ageing is a natural process, a blepharoplasty procedure will restore a more youthful look that will last for many years without the requirement of regular maintenance.
5 You want a bespoke treatment
Blepharoplasty is a highly customisable procedure that can be tailored to address specific concerns. Whether you’re looking to rejuvenate the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, Dr Nick Koutroumanos will produce a personalised treatment plan to meet your individual preferences and needs.
Eyelid Surgery Patient Testimonials
Nick is a highly skilled surgeon and very personable guy. I felt very relaxed and assured about choosing him for my upper eyelid procedure. I would certainly use him again if need be and recommend him to others. My eyelids had begun to give me a tired look in my mid-late 40s which bugged me. I had lines in my forehead too brought on by over-expressing and raising my eyelids all the time when talking to people, which I seemed to do automatically and subconsciously. The procedure itself seemed to go very well and recovery was surprisingly quick. I am delighted with the final outcome, the result has taken years off my face. I also no longer lift my brow to express myself when talking, and as a result the frown lines on my forehead have almost disappeared, an absolute bonus to the result which I hadn’t expected.
