Are your eyes the widow to your soul?

It’s been said that the eyes are the widow into our souls. We look into someone eyes to see if they are happy or sad. Are they trust worthy or not? Are your eyes a reflection of how you truly feel?

Often a patient will complain of looking tired but confess that they are not tired. They complain of lower lid bags and hooding of the upper lids. They attribute these changes to allergies or a heavy work schedule. While it is true that lack of sleep or a bad diet can contribute to how we look and feel, sometimes the aging process can exaggerate these changes around the eyes.

How many of our friends are starting to look like their parents. Many family traits are transferred from parent to child. These undesirable traits can be corrected with Plastic Surgery.

Eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure. Usually the patient is sedated by an anesthesiologist to avoid discomfort and to keep the patient still.  The procedure is an hour or two long and recovery is usually one to two weeks. As will any surgery there are risks associated with blepharoplasty. Every patient is different and a consultation is the best place to learn about the procedure, risks, and recovery.
