HAVE YOUR EYES LOST THERE SHINE?

Over time, you may start to notice changes in your eye’s appearance, typically in the form of the hooding and puffiness. You may also start to notice dark rings and wrinkles. These changes are commonly caused by genetics and aging. But environmental factors such as allergens, UV light, smoking, pollution, poor nutrition, or excessive alcohol use may also play a role.

Fortunately, there’s a variety of treatments proven to rejuvenate the eyes and help restore your skin’s youthful appearance. Learn more below.

Why wait? Your eyes are “the windows to your soul” because they reveal so much about you.  Instead of looking rested, alert, you may appear tired, run-down, or angry. This may be due to dropping eyelids or puffy bags under the eyes. Ask Doctor Diamantis if you are a candidate for an eyelid lift – blepharoplasty.

It has been said that your eyes are the “windows to your soul” because they reveal so much about you. Unfortunately your eyes can be deceiving if the effects of aging have altered them. IF you feel that your eyes make you look older, sad or fatigued, you are a good candidate for cosmetic eyelid surgery. Instead of looking rested, alert, you may appear tired, run-down, or angry. This may be due to drooping eyelids or puffy bags under the eyes. Ask Dr. Diamantis if you are a good candidate for eyelid surgery.

What is eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids.

Surgery can be performed on either the upper or lower lids, or both.

Whether you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids, eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the area surrounding your eyes.

Specifically, eyelid surgery can treat:

  • Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision
  • Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Drooping lower eyelids that reveal white below the iris
  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid

Eyelid surgery candidates

In general, good candidates for eyelid surgery include:

  • Healthy individuals who do not have a life threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing
  • Non-smokers
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for eyelid surgery
  • Individuals without serious eye conditions

Remember that the eyelids are part of the face. The appearance of a drooping upper lid may also be due to relaxation of the forehead skin and eyebrow. Sometimes a drooping eyelid is caused by stretching of one of the upper eyelid muscles, the levator.

Dr. Diamantis will evaluate your anatomy thoroughly to determine the causes of your eyelid appearance, and what procedures might best remedy them.

Today, Kate's so happy she did it. She's still working long hours; however, her peers stopped asking her if she's tired. Kate's blue eyes are now her best feature. Tired of this, she looked for the best surgeon to assist her with this predicament. Kate prides herself on being low maintenance and avoids wearing make up, especially eye shadow and mascara. Dr. Diamantis assured her with the new plastic techniques the eyelid incisions are practically invisible.

A simple office procedure, upper blepharoplasty, was performed to correct this. Kate’s blue eyes are now her best feature.
