Recently I’ve come upon an emerging plastic surgery trend. In my practice at the Robert Zubowski MD Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Paramus, NJ, more younger women than in the past are scheduling consultations with me to consider eyelid surgery. While at first, you might assume that the most likely candidates to require this very common, straightforward procedure are mature women there is a particular sub-group of younger women who have inherited certain unattractive eye characteristics. They may have prominent bags under their eyes that no amount of makeup can conceal, or sad looking, droopy upper eyelids. While in all other aspects of their lives they may be energetic and charismatic, the visual impression–which does count– signals otherwise.
While many of these patients believe that eyelid surgery is their only solution (it is the only permanent fix) we walk them through other viable, non-invasive options. Especially in the younger patient with under eye hollows or dark shadows, we can postpone the inevitable by treating their “tired” eyes with injectable fillers. For example, the benefits of Restylane® and Juvéderm® can be realized for as long as a year. In the meantime they can ease into their new improved “look,” while deciding whether to repeat the procedure or opt for a more permanent course of action.
At the Robert Zubowski MD Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, we are there with you every step of the way. After more than 25 years of specializing in cosmetic rejuvenation as a board-certified plastic surgeon I’ve come to realize how important it is for patients to achieve their aesthetic goals by bringing out their own natural attractiveness.
