The holiday season has come to an end, so it’s time to make those New Year’s Resolutions! Whether you want to get to the gym more or eat healthier, 2020 is all about changing your life for the better. In addition to the small things you can change about your daily routine, this start of a new decade is a great time to consider making some more long-lasting changes. If puffy eyes and lower-eyelid bags cause you to feel self-conscious about your face, now is the perfect time to consider a blepharoplasty to start the year. 

What is a Blepharoplasty?

A blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that is used to correct common cosmetic and medical concerns such as baggy eyelids, droopy eyelids, and excess skin on the eyelids. Correcting these issues through the procedure helps patients appear more youthful and alert. This outpatient procedure can be performed within one to three hours. A carefully-placed incision allows the surgeon to remove excess fat, skin, and muscle from the problem area, yielding the desired look. 

Why is it the Best Solution for Bags Under the Eyes?

While at-home treatments from the drugstore may temporarily make lower-eyelid bags less noticeable, a blepharoplasty is by far the best long-term solution to help you feel better about your face and restore a more youthful appearance. While it is a surgical procedure and does require some recovery time and care, a blepharoplasty is relatively fast-acting. You will notice incredible results within a few short months of having the procedure!

If you think that 2020 is finally the year to treat yourself to a blepharoplasty, it’s time to schedule a consultation with Silk Vision & Surgical Center to find out the next steps.
