We’re all a little guilty of sticking to our trusted make-up routine throughout the years that we most likely developed in our early 20’s or even late teens. As you age, you can suddenly find that your go-to look is no longer cutting it and that your eye makeup is now hidden under your eyelids. It might be time to reconsider your options.
Beauty is in the eyes – are you unhappy with your eyelids?
Are you finding applying your make-up more difficult due to sagging eyelids? You’re not alone. The once perfect winged eyeliner and eyeshadow you loved so much is not only difficult to apply, but once you’ve finished, it disappears under the additional sagging skin on your eyelids that seemingly appeared from nowhere. So, what are your options?
Non-Surgical option – change up your technique
Is your over liner disappearing under sagging skin or your winged liner drooping instead of soaring? Tight lining your eyeliner is a technique where you apply eyeliner by pushing it up gently in between the eyelashes, giving you a depth of colour and definition to your eyes that is both subtle and will not be hidden by sagging skin.
Surgical option – Upper eyelid Surgery
This can be a more permanent fix if you want to restore your eyes to their former glory and continue with your favourite eye make-up routine. Upper eyelid surgery can make a big difference to the appearance of your eyes and can give you a more youthful look. Upper eyelid surgery removes the excess, sagging skin to lift your eyelids and rejuvenate their appearance.
Surgical options – Brow Lift
A brow lift procedure can be performed to reposition the brow area. It is often performed alongside eye rejuvenation surgery for optimum results. A brow lift can also give your overall facial appearance a more youthful and rejuvenation look.
To discuss your options, book in for a consultation with Mr Ross where he will explain all of the techniques he can perform to give your problem area a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. It is always important to be aware of surgical limitations and to manage your expectations. Take a look at Mr Ross’s patients’ before and after pictures to view their results.
