We use our eye muscles more frequently than any other muscle in the body, so it’s no wonder that our eyes are one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Our hard-working eyes are surrounded by thin, fragile skin, which is susceptible to the wear and tear of life.
Are you curious about the benefits of eyelid surgery? Also known as blepharoplasty or an eyelid lift, eyelid surgery is a surprisingly simple procedure that can dramatically revitalize your look.
Here are a few telltale signs that you may benefit from an eyelid lift:
•Frequent blinking (every few seconds when awake)
•Eyes that look hooded (The hooded look results from tissues that have lost their firmness, due to a loss of collagen and elastin with age.)
•Impaired vision due to drooping upper eyelids
Performed by our cosmetic surgeon and medical director, Dr. Khalique Zahir, eyelid lifts are an outpatient procedure to carefully remove excess skin and tighten loose tissue surrounding the delicate eye area. Dr. Zahir will closely evaluate your concerns during your personal consultation and determine if you will benefit from surgery or a combination of treatments. Some patients may discover that a combination treatment with dermal fillers and Botox® may be a better fit for their needs, while others may determine that surgery is the most effective option.
