Most people say that the first thing they see in another person upon first meeting them is their eyes. So, in the social world, the eyes definitely have it. But why is it that people sometimes overlook this most important facial feature when opting to regain some youth? After all, we’ve all had lots of sun exposure. We’ve all seen our skin lose its tautness, especially on our eyelids.
And this is what the person you’re about to meet will see first.
Might be time to consider eyelid surgery, medically known as blepharoplasty.
As we age, all of our skin becomes looser. But around the eyes, where the skin is the thinnest on the entire body, this can really show itself. Our eyelids droop and sag. Sometimes, the upper eyelid can even droop enough to impact our field of vision.
The goal of blepharoplasty is to return the eyelids to the way they looked before all that sagging set in. While you can have either upper or lower eyelid surgery separately, most K Plastic Surgery patients opt to have both done at the same time.
In the upper eyelid, Dr. Kayastha makes an incision in the natural crease of the eyelid, where it will be virtually impossible to see upon recovery. Through this incision, skin is trimmed, muscle tightened, and fat either removed or repositioned to create a rejuvenated appearance.
The lower eyelid incision location is a little more complicated. It can either be made in the corner of the eyelid, under the eyelash, or inside the lid. Again, loose skin is trimmed, muscle is tightened if needed, and fat may be recontoured. Fat is not often removed in the lower eyelid area because the result can be a gaunt, hollow appearance.
So, when you’re thinking of regaining a rejuvenated, don’t overlook your eyes. Call us at 518-346-0002 and let’s talk about eyelid surgery.
