Eyelid Surgery Salt Lake City - Blepharoplasty Utah
Blepharoplasty Blepharoplasty, commonly known as eyelid surgery or eyelid lift is a procedure often part of facial rejuvenation by patients in Utah. Both the upper and lower eyelids can be separately addressed. Further, eyelid surgery can be divided into functional blepharoplasty and cosmetic blepharoplasty. The eyes is an area of the body that can be captivating. Much of a person’s emotions, thoughts and expressions can be revealed through small and subtle changes. Eyes truly are the center piece of the face and the window to the soul. As we age, changes occur around the eyes that convey a sense of tiredness, fatigue or even sickness. This can happen even after a good night’s sleep and when the person feels otherwise refreshed. A common complaint of many patients who request surgery around the eyes is that they go to work after having slept 8 hours and feeling great, yet, people continue to ask, “did you not sleep well last night?” It has very little to do with sleep. These changes are usually genetically inherited. Indeed, there are 90 year olds that still don’t need thier eyes done and there are 16 year olds that already are showing sign of these changes. When genetically predisposed, those changes gradually worsen with age.
