The recent release of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery’s (ASAPS) statistics have confirmed what many facial surgeons have long known: eyelid surgery is an incredibly popular procedure, the fourth most popular procedure in the country. Most interesting, this is the only procedure appearing in the top five that targets the face: the other four all have to do with fat removal or the appearance of the breasts.
What is it that makes eyelid surgery so much more popular than well-known procedures like the face lift? One reason might be the increasing popularity of dermal fillers and injectables, which can create excellent results without the need for facial surgery. There are no fillers that treat baggy or droopy eyelids, so eyelid surgery has remained popular.
There’s also the fact that eyelid surgery can patients who have a wide variety of facial surgery goals, including:
- Looking less tired
- Improving vision and alertness
- Removing “bags” from under the eyes
- Restoring the natural curve of your eyelid
- Accentuating the size and shape of your eyes
