What Is the Right Age for a Blepharoplasty in Toronto?
LEARN MORE ABOUT BLEPHAROPLASTY PROCEDURES
If the appearance of your eyes doesn’t reflect how rested or youthful you feel, you may be investigating cosmetic enhancements that can help. While there are skin treatments and topical products designed to improve eyelid skin, blepharoplasty in Toronto remains the most effective, long-lasting approach to revitalize the eyes. Puffy bags, hooded lids, or wrinkles all form due to skin damage, and underlying fat pads. A blepharoplasty, also called eyelid lift surgery, can reverse these changes whether due to age or genetics.
If you think surgery may offer the dramatic improvement you need, you may also be curious about the right age to proceed. Contrary to common perceptions, not all patients seeking eye rejuvenation are over 50. Some are in their 20s or 30s, and some are many decades past that, wondering if they’re too old. We’ll take a look at the general requirements for blepharoplasty candidates and how you might determine when the best age for your intervention is.
Upper blepharoplasty in Toronto
In the upper lids, the relationship between eyelid crease and eyelashes can change subtly as you age. To see a fold a few millimetres above the upper eyelashes is considered proportionate and ideal, although many variations are normal. If your crease lowers or disappears because of sagging, bulging or hooded upper lids, you may appear tired and older than you wish.
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty can be performed for younger clients who do not see sagging but have a monolid and wish to see a defined, double lid crease. As well, when skin thins and sags due to age, removing a small ellipse through an incision placed in the crease opens the area back up to reveal wider eyes. Fat can be manipulated to sculpt more pleasing contours in the area too.
