Who doesn’t want to look younger? After all, many people believe the key to feeling young is looking young. As a double board-certified plastic surgeon with over 35 years of experience performing cosmetic procedures, I have seen first-hand the amazing effect cosmetic surgery can have on a patient’s appearance and self-esteem. And when trying to achieve a more youthful appearance, there is often no better place to begin with than the eyes.
As we age, a number of changes may occur including sagging skin above the eyes, fat build-up that give some people “bags” or puffiness under their eyes, or loose muscles around the eyelids that can make the eyes look older and more tired. Eyelid surgery (known as blepharoplasty) can correct these issues to create a more rested, younger-looking appearance for the eyes. While eyelid surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, it is an outpatient procedure and patients are typically able to get back into their normal daily routine within a few days of their procedure.
If you are interested in learning more about eyelid surgery and how it can be an amazing step towards facial rejuvenation, please check out the video below in which I explain the various details and benefits of the procedure:
Keep in mind that eyelid surgery is not a one-size-fits-all procedure. For instance, you must first determine whether you are a candidate for upper or lower eyelid blepharoplasty (or both). That’s why it’s essential to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your specific needs and goals before making any hasty decisions.
