Eyelid surgery, once thought of as controversial, has become so widespread that it’s now more popular than a facelift and nose job in the UK.
It was reported by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS) that a staggering 1,379,263 people worldwide had the procedure in 2013, making it the third most popular cosmetic procedure.
This is further backed up by research from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), which found that it was the second most popular cosmetic procedure for men and women in the UK last year.
As we age several unpleasant changes occur to our faces. Unfortunately the thin skin around our eyelids starts to lose its elasticity and stretch, resulting in excess folds of skin hanging over our upper eyelids that become impossible to hide and make us look older than we feel.
Why eyelid surgery may be applicable to you:
- Puffy areas or ‘bags under the eyes
- Excessive skin or sagging of upper eyelids
- Excessive skin on lower eyelids
- Loss of natural upper eyelid crease
- Impaired vision due to drooping skin around the eye
