“The eyes are the gateway to the soul”. The appearance of our eyes is a key way in which others perceive us. A wealth of information and emotions are communicated non-verbally through our eyes. Unfortunately, with time the aging process can make our eyes appear tired and sad, inaccurately reflecting the vibrant person that lies within.
Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery can help reverse the effects that aging and sun exposure have on the appearance of the eyes. There are a number of procedures that can be combined to improve the appearance of the eyes. Extra skin and fat in the eyelids can be removed or reshaped, the youthful tone and shape of the lower eyelid can be rejuvenated, the hollow cheek area (tear trough) under the eyes can be filled, and the position and shape of the eyebrows can be corrected.
During your consultation, Dr. Shifrin can discuss the options that are ideally suited for your individual needs. Many people considering eyelid surgery also may be good candidates for a brow lift or face lift procedure. Dr Shifrin will take time during your facial rejuvenation visit to discuss the overall state of your face and neck and how it affects your appearance.
