Cosmetics and Reconstructive Eye Surgery

Looking your best

It’s human nature. We all want to look younger. Or perhaps something aesthetic has bothered you for years. For many, it goes beyond appearance. Looking good is feeling good, and self-confidence counts at every stage of life. Cosmetic eye procedures – some surgical, some not – can improve how we see ourselves. Some actually improve how we see.

The eyes have it, or should we say them. Those natural signs of aging that can make you appear tired, sad or just older than you feel. Eyelids can get puffy, heavy, or bulge and droop down because of excessive skin, muscle and fatty tissue. Successful cosmetic eye surgery or other procedures can correct sagging, bulging eyelids and eyebrow tissues and reduce wrinkling, restoring a youthful appearance.

 

Lids, Lifts and Fillers

 

Some of the most popular cosmetic procedures can be performed in a simple office visit, with tiny incisions or injections and little or no visible scarring:

  • Blepharoplasty (single or double eyelid surgery): the artful removal of excess skin and underlying bulging tissue, followed by elevating and anchoring deeper muscle layers.
  • Browplasty (brow or forehead lift): restores the normal brow position and contour and reduces creases in the forehead.
  • Cheek or Orbital Onlay Implant: restores the fullness that once gave you those higher cheekbones.
  • BOTOX®: injected into muscles between the eyebrows for temporary improvement of frown line creases.
  • Restylane®: injected similar to BOTOX, and used to fill in the furrows between the eyebrows; often works in conjunction with BOTOX injections to fill in residual creases.
  • Chemical Peel: revitalizes skin by creating a minor, controlled effect to the skin. The skin reacts by producing more collagen as it regenerates.

Reconstructive and cosmetic ocular surgery is in a state of constant development as technology progresses. New surgical techniques are being modified to be less invasive, with quicker recovery time. How these help and effect the patient, all depend on their condition. As our population ages, an increasing number of men and women are using these relatively simple surgeries to refresh their appearance.
