Poets have called the eyes the windows to the soul. They are certainly one of the most expressive parts of the face. If your eyes have lost that refreshing sparkle of youth and are looking tired and old, then consider eyelid surgery to give you back that rested, vibrant look.
The two common aging signs around the eyes include loose, stretchy skin that forms folds and wrinkles, and the bags or puffs of fat that bulge outward.
A blepharoplasty is a relatively painless operation, performed under local anesthesia with IV sedation, which removes the protruding fat and extra skin folds, thereby creating a smoother, more youthful appearance for your eyes. The scars are hidden in natural skin lines.Itís important to realize that the so called crows feet or smile lines are caused by the movement of your facial muscles ad respond much better to Botox injections than surgery. Also, the fine, criss-crossing aged texture lines of the eyelid skin may require chemical peeling or laser resurfacing to improve. These treatments can often be conveniently combined to create a total rejuvenation of your eyelids.
