Blepharoplasty is becoming an increasingly popular procedure for people in their 30s and 40s. While the surgery is often associated with older patients, more and more younger people are seeking blepharoplasty to correct issues like under eye puffiness and drooping upper lids. Let’s look at the reasons why blepharoplasty is becoming a popular choice for younger patients and how it could benefit you.

What Is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a surgery that corrects concerns with the eyelids and undereye area. The upper eyelids can be lifted to improve vision and the lower eyelids can be corrected to remove puffiness or bags. Blepharoplasty can also be performed for purely cosmetic reasons, such as to make the eyes appear more open or to create a youthful appearance.

Eyelid surgery can address multiple concerns related to the look around your eyes.

Why Are More Young People Getting Blepharoplasty? 

There are a few reasons why eyelid surgery is becoming increasingly popular among young adults. For one, we are now more aware of the signs of aging and how to prevent them. With the advent of social media, we are exposed to images of celebrities and influencers who have perfect skin and youthful features. This has created a desire for blepharoplasty among people who want to maintain a youthful appearance.

In addition, blepharoplasty has become more accessible and affordable in recent years. Thanks to advances in technology, the surgery is now less invasive and can be performed with minimal scarring. This has made blepharoplasty a more attractive option for younger patients who are looking to improve their appearance.

Reasons to Consider Blepharoplasty in Your 30s or 40s

First, as we age, our skin loses elasticity and gravity starts to take its toll. This can cause the eyelids to droop and the under-eye area to sag, leading to a tired or aged appearance. Blepharoplasty can help correct these issues and restore a more youthful look.

In addition, blepharoplasty can be used to improve vision in patients with drooping eyelids. If your upper eyelids are sagging so much that they’re interfering with your vision, blepharoplasty can help.

Finally, blepharoplasty can be a great way to combat the effects of sun damage and other environmental factors. If you’ve spent a lot of time outdoors without proper protection, you may have noticed wrinkles or fine lines around your eyes. Blepharoplasty can help reduce the appearance of these wrinkles and give you a refreshed look.

How Can You Know if Blepharoplasty Is Right for You?

If you are considering blepharoplasty, it is important to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing the surgery and can prep you on what to expect. During your consultation, your surgeon will assess your individual needs and goals to determine if blepharoplasty is the right choice for you. Depending on how your case presents, nonsurgical alternatives could be better.

If you are unhappy with the way your eyes look, there is no reason to just accept things as they are. Even at 30, you can make changes that boost your confidence.
