New research from the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons has found that people who wear contact lenses are more likely to experience premature eyelid drooping. Studies conducted on 96 sets of twins found that those who wore contact lenses experienced a higher level of ptosis (drooping) at a much younger age than those who wore glasses or no prescription eyewear at all – even after factors such as sleeping habits, stress levels, and smoking were taken into account.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your eyelids, call board-certified McLean plastic surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside at (888) 730-4113 to schedule a blepharoplasty consultation today.
Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is designed to lift drooping eyelids and restore a youthful and alert appearance to the eyes. With this procedure, Dr. Gartside can also eliminate dark and puffy skin below the eyes, producing an overall more rested and refreshed look to the upper face. This procedure can produce remarkable results on its own but, depending on your specific needs, may be combined with other surgical and nonsurgical treatments for optimal results. Dr. Gartside can discuss this with you in greater detail during your blepharoplasty consultation.
