Tired of looking Tired?

Droopy eyelids or puffy bags under the eyes can make people look tired and older. Blepharoplasty or eye surgery can correct these problems leaving patients with younger looking more attractive eyes.

Eyes say a lot about a person. They express happiness, sadness, fear, anger and fatigue.

Men and women of all ages are choosing to have eye surgery to improve their appearance and self esteem.
A drooping eyelid can occur when the skin from the eyelid looses elasticity. In some extreme cases the skin is so lax that it hangs down and affects a person's vision. Sometimes this condition is related to age as well as lifestyle and heredity.

Usually the excess fat and skin is removed through incisions inconspicuously placed in the eyes creases.

The lower eyelids may have excess skin, fine wrinkles, puffy fat bags or dark circles.


Fat under the eyes can be removing through small incisions inside the lid or externally along the lower rim below the lower lashes.

For fine lines around the eyes a laser may be used to tighten the skin and smooth out the wrinkles. To maintain minimum eye wrinkles following eye surgery botox can be injected into crowsfeet and laugh lines.

The ages and ethnicity of patients varies and the surgeon's evaluation of each patients needs is very important. Expectations as well as general health are important issues before considering any surgery.

Eye surgery can rejuvenate the eyes correcting a tired or aging look. While eyes change as we age, surgery can restore a more youthful and refreshing appearance at any age.
