Eyelid Surgery Good for Self-Image

Eyelid surgery on drooping eyelids can result in a boost of self esteem, along with other positive effects.

woman mirrorA new survey shows that cosmetic surgery on drooping eyelids can improve quality of life.

The operation is called blepharoplasty. It repairs drooping eyelids by removing extra fat, skin and muscle, which can accumulate with age. Having eyelids like this can also impair vision.

Researchers questioned 26 adults who were undergoing cosmetic surgery on their upper and lower eyelids.

They learned that all of the patients were having this procedure done to improve not just their appearance but also their self-esteem – and that it worked. This suggests that among older patients, eyelid surgery can be one of the most effective procedures to make them feel good about their looks.
