The eyes are probably the first area of the face to show the signs of aging. Your eyes are the windows of the soul and you want to protect your individuality. If your eyes are making you look tired, weary, depressed, or angry regardless of how you feel, you may consider aesthetic facial surgery to the eyes so that you will obtain a whole new look and a much more rested and less tired look. Blepheroplasty, or eyelid surgery, may be the appropriate procedure to restore the youthful appearance of the eyes.

It is not unusual to see hooded upper lids or saggy lower lids appearing when you are still in your early or mid 30's. Although we commonly will think that facial plastic surgery is only required for those in the 50's, 60's and 70's, individuals in their 30's are excellent candidates as well. Heredity plays a large part. Droopy down turned eyes and overhanging upper lids often run in families, but that does not mean that you have to live with the aesthetically displeasing appearance.

We can help you decide if you are a good candidate for eyelid surgery. Eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper or lower eyelids or both. Excess skin is removed through an incision made in the natural crease or around the upper eye. For the lower lids, protruding fat tissue that causes "bags under the eyes" is removed through an invisible incision made inside the lower lid. The eyelids heal particularly well because of the rich blood supply in the region and the resulting incisions to the upper eyelids and lower eyelids are scarcely noticeable. The transconjunctival technique has no visible incisions.
The operation takes from one to two hours. There is minimal discomfort after eyelid surgery. You will be expected to place ice packs over the eyes after the surery. There will be some minor swelling and bruising.. Generally, you should be able to return to your normal routine within 3-4 days.

Within a few weeks you should experience an excellent overall improvement which is virtually permanent. Friends may comment on how refreshed and rested you appear without guessing that anything has been done. The appropriateness of this procedure for any individual needs to be carefully evaluated so that the greatest benefit may be achieved with the least recovery.

Progressive drooping of the eyebrows and wrinkling of the forehead are some of the earliest and most recognizable aspects of facial aging. Sagging eyebrows and forehead skin, when advanced, is recognized by contact between the hairs of the eyebrow and eyelash. This phenomenon often prompts patients to comment that their eyes seem to be "shrinking" and that make-up smears on the upper eyelid easily.

This redundancy of tissue also heaps up on the eyelid region itself, creating accordion-like wrinkles. Wrinkles develop in both a transverse and horizontal orientation and fail to disappear even when the eyebrows are at rest. The results of these changes can falsely create a visual image of exhaustion or anger in an individual's face.

The browlift procedure, also called the forehead lift, allows for elevation of the eyebrows and tightening of the forehead skin, giving the eye region a more refreshed and well-rested appearance. Wrinkles are reduced or eliminated by removing the underlying muscles which create them ,thus you may never require botox injection. Excess skin accounting for the laxity is redistributed or removed from the scalp above.

The browlift procedure usually is performed through several one centimeter incisions within the hair using a lighted camera called an endoscope. This approach has the advantage of minimizing scalp scars, lessening the backward movement of the hairline and faster recovery.
