More recently, cosmetic eye surgery has become quite popular. Some people desire wee changes in this pivotal facial feature to enhance their looks.

Sometimes it’s just about catching up with the next hot trend. The fear of missing out is very real. In this guide, we’ll tell you about all the eye beauty trends, such as cat eyes, brow lifting, Botox, and tear through fillers.
Do Celebrities Have Anything to Do with Changing Beauty Trends?
It sure seems so. So many Hollywood celebrities always look the epitome of perfection even though they’re in sweatpants or shimmering gowns. There’s a huge list of celebrities who’ve gone under the knife to slightly modify the way they look. It’s pretty hard to tell of if the celebrity had any cosmetic treatment at all. Botched surgeries get noticed the most. You only see the drastic changes when you place the before and after photos of the celebs together. Otherwise, so many small changes place over time that people don’t even realize that they were taking place in the first place. Some of the celebs’ eyebrows are higher and thicker, others have gotten rid of the fold on their eyelids, and some others have made their skin firm and taut instead of getting more wrinkles and fine lines.
So many celebrities have these beautiful attractive faces. And it makes you wish to have the same facial features as them. It could be one reason behind the rising popularity of procedures like lifted brows, almond eyes and thick eyelashes. Celebrities also create confidence among others that nothing bad would happen if they go and have this surgery. After all, if such a huge celebrity got the surgery, there must be something right about it. They wouldn’t have had it if it wasn’t right. Take the Kardashian-Jenner clan for instance. Their own plastic surgeries for curvaceous bodies have set a whole trend where people want to have breast augmentation, Brazilian butt lift, lip fillers, and cat eyes, among other procedures.
What is Cat Eye Treatment?
Upturned at the outer eye corners, cat eyes give the eyes an alluring almond shape. The procedure is known as a canthoplasty. In this, the corners of the eyes are tightened and elongated. This turns them upwards, making them almost look like wings. There are many people who aim to get rid of their saggy, droopy eyelids. They can do so by getting the corners of their eyes tightened. This gives them a beautiful upward slant. In this procedure, the surgeon cuts the unwanted folds on the eyelids. This helps them look wider and more lifted. The surgeon can use threads to lift the eyelids or perform surgeries to ensure the permanence of the results.
It is a very popular procedure. So many people desire the famous cat eyes. It’ll turn the eyelids upwards and outwards for that purpose. Implants and fillers can be used to make the results even more perfect. The resulting almond shape eyes are made harmonious with the angle of the brows and mid face. It doesn’t matter what the shape of your eyes is. You can get this procedure.
You might’ve seen many famous celebrities and models with cat eyes. Kylie Jenner, Blake Lively, Taylor Swift are just a few big names who have had a cat eye surgery to get rid of their hooded eyelids.
What is Brow Lifting?
As you age, your skin will lose its elasticity. This will eventually cause it to droop and sag. A droopy forehead pushes the eyebrows downward on the face. This happens with ageing. It decreases the distance between your eyes and eyebrows and almost gives you an angry, sad appearance. With a brow lift, you can make your skin taut again, which will allow the eyebrows to go back to where they originally were.
It will give you a more youthful and fresh appearance by getting rid of the forehead wrinkles and frown lines. The procedure can take place through surgical and non-surgical techniques. In the case of the former, the surgeon lifts the eyebrow tissue and performs stitches to keep the eyebrows higher.
The non-surgical technique involves Botox or thread lifting. In thread lifting, a dissolvable thread helps pull the skin up. It is believed that celebrities like Bella Hadid, Kylie Jenner, and Ariana Grande had their eyebrows lifted. So many stars have had their eyelids cut and sutured so that they look more in-tune with the latest beauty trends.
What Are Tear Trough Fillers?
It’s a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure. The reason why people choose to have a tear-trough filler is that some people have very thin skin in the under eye area. This can make them look perpetually tired. Moreover, some people’s veins are also visible in this area which is quite prominent when the skin is too thin. This makes the skin under the eyes look blueish and veiny. Some people find this bothersome and look towards tear-trough fillers as the ultimate solution. This treatment can also take place on the upper eyelids to get rid of the hollowness. A hyaluronic acid gel is injected in the area under the eyes. It helps boost its volume. This will also have the effect of softening and moisturising the skin, however, the results are not permanent.
What Is A Botox?
You are more or less aware of what Botox is. Almost everyone knows about it, along with fillers. Botox takes its name from the toxin produced by bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is very commonly used for getting rid of small wrinkles (crow’s feet) around the eyes. Botox can also fill and smoothen the frown lines, the wrinkles between the eyebrows. Botox stops the nerves in the target area from sending signals to the muscles. This stops them from contracting. And as they relax, this process prevents the formation of unwanted wrinkles. When the wrinkles disappear, it gives the person a youthful, smooth skin.
It should be noted that Botox is not a permanent treatment. Its results can last for no longer than six months or a year. So, you will have to get the procedure redone. This procedure is undoubtedly really popular, especially these days where social media essentially dictates the next beauty trend.
Should You Get a Cosmetic Eye Surgery?
That’s completely your choice to make. If you want to get cat eyes like Kendall Jenner, then you can have this treatment. Tear-trough fillers help take care of a difficult situation where you always look tired. Brow lifting and Botox are some other procedures that can adequately take care of wrinkles and fine lines. So, it’s all up to you. The treatment you choose to get will depend on your needs and desires.
Sometimes a brow lift can help improve the vision of the patients as the sagging skin can droop in front of the eyes hindering their ability to see properly. So, cosmetic eye surgery can also serve a functional purpose. Whether or not you should get a cosmetic surgery should be ultimately decided by you. You know better what best serves your needs.
We hope this guide has made of you aware of some cosmetic eye surgery trends that are popular these days, especially among the youth. Sometimes the celebrities don’t reveal that they have had cosmetic surgery, but one look at their past and present photos and the differences are quite clear.
