The earliest signs of aging often occur around the eyes in both men and women. Treating crows feet with Botox Cosmetic® often is one of the first cosmetic procedures a person will try. Erasing some of the small lines around the eyes can make you look five or more years younger. But, what about when skin around the eyes loses its elasticity and injectable treatments can no longer correct the signs of aging?
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift, is a very common first cosmetic surgery because it specifically addresses the first substantial signs of aging after wrinkles. Skin can appear to sag around the eyes due as skin loses elasticity or as small pouches of fat appear around the eye over time. These effects combine to give the eyes an aged and tired appearance that then translates to a person‘s entire expression. And, nobody wants to look tired!
An upper eyelid lift is a surgical procedure that can restore a refreshed, youthful look. The surgery removes sagging tissue to restore a smoother appearance to skin around the eyes. Depending on the patients’ needs, small deposits of fat may be moved slightly or repositioned in this surgery.
