The human eye and the structures that support it have a unique and marvelous design. In addition to allowing us to see, our eyes, our eyebrows and our eyelids allow us to express a wide range of emotions. People often say that your eyes do not lie. This means that your eyes and the structures around them tend to transmit the way that you feel regardless of any attempts to hide your true feelings.

However, there are some times where the message that your eyes are sending about you does not accurately reflect who you are on the inside. There are a lot of individuals who have heavy eyelids, puffy eyelids or wrinkles on the upper and lower eyelids. When combined with dark circles, these eyes can make you look tired, angry and can even give you a gaunt and worn-out appearance.

This can be exceptionally frustrating for a person who on the inside is extremely happy. It can get discouraging having people constantly ask if you are tired or why are you so angry. If you feel that this is happening to you, then you may be a good candidate for eyelid surgery.

Some of the characteristics that define a good eyelid surgery candidate include:

• Loose skin that hangs over the upper eyelid. This skin may even block your vision.
• An upper eyelid that has a puffy appearance. This puffy or swollen appearance may make you look like you’re tired all the time.
• Extra skin and wrinkles that look like crepe paper on the upper and lower eyelids.
• Heavy bags and dark circles underneath your eyes.

Eyelid surgery can correct all of the above-mentioned problems in the majority of patients. To get the most out of this surgical procedure, you should be in good health. Eyelid surgery is relatively simple and generally requires the surgeon to tighten the skin around the eye, smooth out the wrinkles, remove excessive fat and reposition the fat in the eyelid. The result is that you will have a more youthful and healthy appearance. You will look happy, and so other people will treat you in a more positive way.

The human eye has the unique ability to transmit the way that we feel to the world. If you feel like what your eyes are saying about you is not true, then you may be the perfect candidate for eyelid surgery.
