Your eyes say a lot about who you are, how you feel, and what you are thinking. Unfortunately, the aging process can do a lot to change what your eyes are saying about you. Excess skin hanging on the upper eyelids and bags of skin under the eyes can make you look tired and older than you really are. If you are dealing with these problems, you may have considered blepharoplasty in Chicago. Here are some things to think about when determining if an eyelid lift is right for you.
A Look at Your Overall Health
In order to qualify for blepharoplasty in Chicago, an individual needs to enjoy overall good health. While the techniques that are used in this surgery are a lot less invasive than they used to be, it is still surgery. So we will ask you questions about your health and the medications you take when helping to determine if this is the right procedure for you.
It is also important for an individual to enjoy good emotional and mental health. Having a surgery performed because of pressure from others is never a good idea. It is a personal decision that should only be made when a person is ready to do something for themselves in order to improve their own appearance.
How the Surgery is Performed
Blepharoplasty can be performed on both the upper and/or the lower eyelids. Some individuals need to have both areas addressed in order to improve their appearance and get rid of hanging skin. Others only need to have one portion of their eyelids corrected in order to refresh their appearance. In most cases, this surgery is performed for cosmetic reasons; however, it can also offer functional benefits.
