Signs You Need Another Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is a common procedure that can transform the look of your eyes. The natural aging process can take a toll on the area around your eyes as the skin is much thinner. This can be exacerbated by poor lifestyle habits and environmental factors. Sagging skin and wrinkles require cosmetic intervention, which can be addressed through blepharoplasty. Below you will find the top signs you need another blepharoplasty.

Benefits of Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty can have a dramatic impact on your appearance. It can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, remove sagging skin, and leave you looking years younger. Blepharoplasty, also referred to as “eyelid surgery,” can be performed on your lower or upper eyelids. Lower eyelid surgery can address dark circles, skin sagging (“eye bags”), and fine lines and wrinkles under your eyes. Upper eyelid surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat, in addition to tightening the muscle above your eye. Both procedures can leave your eye area looking tighter and firmer.

Signs You Need Another Blepharoplasty

Eyelid surgery in Beverly Hills is often a long-term solution that can address the signs of aging around your eyes. However, revisional eyelid surgery is necessary in some cases. Consider the following signs indicating its time you need eyelid surgery again.

  • Puffy or tired-looking eyes (even when you are well rested)
  • Bags under your eyes
  • Sagging skin (upper or lower eyelids)
  • Issues with your vision (heavy brow)

Factors That Lead To Eyelid Revision Surgery

Sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles can all impact the area around your eyes. Eyelid surgery can address these issues, but it is not a permanent solution. In some cases, revisional eyelid surgery in Beverly Hills may be necessary. This is why it is important to follow your surgeon’s instructions post-surgery to ensure your results last.

There are a number of factors that can lead to the need for revisional eyelid surgery. Consider the most common reasons why the procedure may be right for you.

Natural Aging:

Eyelid surgery can dramatically transform your appearance, but it cannot stop the natural aging process. Depending on when you get your first procedure, you may need a second one if you have not focused on preserving your results.

Sun Exposure:

Your skin can become damaged by sun exposure as it breaks down the natural collagen in your skin. Without this important protein, your skin can break down much faster.

Poor Skin Care Routine:

A bad skin care routine, or no routine at all, can be harmful. Skin care is not a one-size-fits-all approach so it’s important to find products that are right for your unique skin care needs.

Poor Sleep:

People who regularly get little or poor-quality sleep will notice the impact on their face. Your skin repairs at night so it’s important to ensure you get enough good sleep for your skin and health.


The squinting movement can have an impact on the areas around your eyes, causing premature wrinkles. Wear sunglasses and make sure your eye prescription is up to date to avoid excess squinting.

Eye Rubbing:

The levator muscle (above your eye) can become stretched and sag. This can contribute more to a heavy brow. Avoid rubbing your eyes or removing your makeup too rough, as it can stretch out the muscles surrounding your eyes.
