Tired Eyes

The eyes are a central feature of one’s appearance. They have been called the “gateway to the soul”. More than any other facial attribute, your eyes reveal the most about how you feel. When your eyes are bright and alert, you appear energized, well-rested, and in control. Heredity, age or stress can take their toll, leaving you with lower-eyelid puffiness and drooping or wrinkled upper lids. People may assume that you are fatigued, angry or unhappy. If your eyelids look old and tired, you will look old and tired.

The Aging Eyelid

As we age, the muscles around our eyes tend to weaken and our skin begins to sag. Fat also accumulates around the eyes. Sometimes it just affects the upper lids or we can develop heavy bags under our eyes. In fact, the eyes are usually where we show the earliest signs of advancing age. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a nearly scar-free technique designed to remove fat, excess skin and sometimes muscle from the eyelids. It can be performed on the upper or lower eyelid, or both. This procedure is designed for those wanting to look younger, more refreshed and more alert. Even the slightest changes to the eyelids can help an individual look younger and more vibrant.

Eyelid Rejuvenation

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is usually performed in patients aged 40 and above, although it can be done as early as the 20s or 30s. It is a simple and safe procedure done under IV sedation with local anesthesia. It takes approximately one to two hours and post-operative discomfort is surprisingly mild. Bruising and swelling usually resolve in 5 – 7 days but can last 2 weeks with lower eye lid surgery. You will need to avoid wearing contact lenses for 2 weeks. Patients enjoy a rejuvenated appearance in just a few weeks and the results are very long lasting, leaving patients looking years younger.
