Surgery of The Eyelid (Blepharoplasty)
Everyone loves to look at beautiful eyes. In fact, studies reveal that the eyes are considered to be the most important aesthetic feature of the face and they are the first things that people notice about you. Eyes are essential to a person’s overall beauty and when changes occur, your eyes can make you appear older than you are. The earliest signs of aging are found around your eyes so it is not uncommon to feel frustrated when the eyes looking back at you in the mirror are saggy, puffy, or tired looking. Fortunately, cosmetic eyelid surgery can give you dramatically younger looking eyes by enhancing your appearance and giving you back your self-confidence. Today, a large number of procedures exist for rejuvenating the upper and lower eyelids and eyelid procedures are one of the most effective ways to turn back the hands of time.

Beautiful eyes are almond shaped, tilted up with crisp creases, and the fat deposits that give your eyes their shape are held in place by thin sheets of ligaments and tendons. As your skin ages, these weaken and gradually lose elasticity allowing your upper and lower eyelids to collect excessive skin. Extra skin on your lower eyelid can cause bulges and wrinkles while extra folds of skin on your upper eyelids can hang over your eyelashes and obstruct vision. Bulges can also be caused from the fat that cushions your eyeball from your skull and when the thin membrane that holds this fat in place weakens, fat protrudes into your lids.
