The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), stated that eyelid surgery was one of the five most popular plastic surgery procedures in 2015, with more than 200,000 eyelid surgeries administered. Here, we talk about why more people are getting facial rejuvenation procedures now more than ever before.


Year after year, several patients visit plastic surgeons with the same complaint: they hate the way they look due to dark, puffy eyelids or under-eye circles. These unsightly facial changes can be caused by a number of factors, including genetics, sun damage, stress or simply the passing of time. But no matter what the cause is, the result is often an undesirable one: a tired, older-looking appearance.

Eyelid surgery rejuvenates the eye area by removing excess skin and tissue, and tightening the remaining skin on the upper eyelids to make the eyes look bigger and more alive. Eyelid surgery can also remove excess skin and fat from the lower eyelids to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or dark under-eye circles. Patients who once complained of looking tired can enjoy a more vibrant facial appearance thanks to eyelid surgery.


In some cases, loose, excess skin from the upper eyelids can be physically uncomfortable. The excess skin can be heavy to move, making it difficult for someone to open and close their eyes comfortably. The “falling” eyelid skin can also interfere with vision by partially blocking a person’s eyes. Everyday tasks such as reading can become difficult and unenjoyable, while other tasks such as driving become dangerous. Some individuals that have loose upper eyelid skin often complain about excess skin rubbing together which can cause irritation. Eyelid surgery aids in getting rid of excess skin and tightening the remaining skin. With eyelid surgery, from Gold Coast blepharoplasty clinic Dr Scamp patients can open their eyes with ease and enjoy everyday tasks more comfortably.


Many people find that eyelid surgery enhances the youthful results of other facial plastic surgery procedures, such as facelift and brow lift. A facelift smooths the creases and wrinkles from the mid-face area. Combining eyelid and facelift surgery to an individual’s facial rejuvenation treatment, patients can enjoy a more beautiful overall facial appearance. Brow lifts eliminate excess tissue and skin on the brow and lifts the remaining skin to a higher position on the face. While a brow lift is sufficient, many patients are left wanting to address other eye area concerns, like unsightly puffy eyelids or crow’s feet. Combining eyelid surgery with a brow lift only enhances the appearance of the eyes.
