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.
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
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.
