About Hooded Eyes
Hooded eyes refer to instances in which the eyelid is obscured by a portion of the skin above the eye that droops down. It can make a person's eyes look much smaller, and have a negative impact on overall appearance as a result. This sagging of the skin may be the result of the natural aging process or heredity. In some cases, the drooping can be so severe that it leads to partially obscured vision.
While good eye makeup can improve the shape and definition of the eyes, many people consider undergoing cosmetic eyelid surgery to provide a more permanent solution to these issues.
Ideal Candidates for Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
Good candidates for cosmetic eyelid surgery are people who would like to enhance the overall appearance of their eyes and shape of their eyes. They should be in good overall health and not experience any sorts of health issues that may make a facial surgery like this a risk to overall wellness.
During the consultation process, we will be sure to note the various risks and benefits associated with cosmetic eyelid surgery so patients can me the most informed decision possible about their treatment options.
How the Surgery Addresses Hooded Eyes
During cosmetic eyelid surgery, an incision will be made along the natural fold along the eyelid. Through this incision, a surgeon is able to remove excess skin and make other adjustments to parts of the upper eyelid area. In the process, the sagging portion of skin that obscures the eyelid will be eliminated. This will effectively make the upper eyelids visible and open up the shape of the eyes. The procedure can also improve someone's vision if the sagging skin that blocked the upper eyelid resulted in some amount vision blockage.
How Effective Is the Surgery?
Cosmetic eyelid surgery is a highly effective option for enhancing appearance and potentially treating obscured vision. Many patients are satisfied with the results that are achieved and how natural they look.
Is There Any Visible Scarring?
No. The scarring is well hidden.
While scars are a reality after any sort of surgery, the careful incision placement during cosmetic eyelid surgery makes them very difficult to notice. The incision is small, and it is tucked into the natural eyelid fold.
