Wake Up Your Look

Are you frequently told that you look tired even though you are not? Do people think that you are older than you actually are? Perhaps the reason is the appearance of your eyes. Excess eyelid skin and bags under the eyes can make you look tired and aged. Fortunately, cosmetic eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can restore that rested and rejuvenated look that you desire.

Blepharoplasty may involve the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids or both, and entails removal of excess skin and/or removal of fat. Incisions are positioned so the resultant scars are inconspicuously hidden within the natural upper eyelid crease, below the lower eye lashes or on the internal surface of the lower eyelid. Postoperative pain is minimal. Bruising and swelling of the eyelids is typically resolved by 10-14 days following the procedure. Normal physical activity may be resumed after two weeks.

Occasionally, ancillary procedures are required to enhance and optimize the outcome. These procedures may include a brow lift to reposition the eyebrows to a more youthful position, correction of droopy eyelids that may be hidden by the excess upper eyelid skin or tightening of the lower eyelid when there is excess and display of the white below the iris. Laser resurfacing is an effective way to tighten the lower eyelid skin non-surgically. Fine wrinkles located to the outside of the eyelids, (crow's feet) are best managed by BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments.

The eyes are the major focal point of your face. Cosmetic restoration of the eyelid region is one of the most profound ways to allow you to look the way you feel.
