The next time someone looks you straight in the eyes and says you haven’t changed a bit but seems insincere, you might like to take a reality check in front of a mirror. My guess is that your eyes might tell a truer story.
Droopy, puffy eyelids, and/or dark under eye shadows are common in more mature adults. And while you may feel energetic, when your eyes are beginning to show your true age, it promotes an image of someone tired, bored, or even depressed. In more severe cases drooping eyelids can even impair vision.
Cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is sought by men and women. It’s safe to say that more women opt for the procedure to produce a more youthful, and most certainly, a more alert appearance. At the Robert Zubowski MD Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Paramus, NJ we routinely perform blepharoplasties. For an experienced cosmetic surgeon like myself, a blepharoplasty is a rather straightforward procedure. As a board certified plastic surgeon I’ve been performing them for over 25 years.
Cosmetic eyelid surgery involves making precise minuscule incisions around your eyes to remove any excess skin from the upper, lower or both eyelids. Since the incisions are skillfully done there should be little or no detectable scars. You should plan on taking about a week away from work and your normal activities after your surgery because swelling is a natural occurrence that resolves over the next several days, and is unique to each patient.
I have just touched on the bare essentials. In my opinion, cosmetic eyelid surgery goes a long way in helping you to revitalize your good looks.
