Plastic Surgery Hair Restoration

Are your eyes making you look older? 

We’ve all heard the old adage – “your eyes are the windows to your soul” – but what if your eyes reflect someone who’s tired, yet you’re booming with youthful energy? 

The eyes tend to be the first area of the face to show premature aging. Whether it is due to overhanging/ sagging upper eyelids or fat protruding through the skin of the lower eyelids, or a combination of both, the eyes can add decades to an otherwise youthful face. This can largely be attributed to the anatomy of the eye area: The skin around the eyes is very thin compared to the skin on the rest of the face and body, and any changes in the fat composition or skin laxity can really be amplified because of it.

Why consider blepharoplasty with Dr. Wise?

One of the more common concerns patients turn to double-board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey Wise in Wayne, New Jersey, is excess skin on the upper eyelid, often referred to as “droopy eyes” or “sagging eyelids.” This excess skin can drop down to the lash line for a number of reasons – fat and collagen loss from the brow bone, excess fat pads above eye, genetics, muscle atrophy, as well as skin laxity, not to mention environmental stressors such as excess sun exposure, use of makeup, or even wearing contact lenses.

Another concern Dr. Wise often addresses is “eye bags,” medically referred to as the pseudoherniation of fat. Eye bags are caused when the fat in the eye orbit and below the eye starts to protrude. Although more common as we age, eye bags can be genetic, and patients as young as in their early twenties have turned to Dr. Wise to improve the appearance of their eye area.

Unfortunately, there are no creams, lotions or potions that can magically alter the anatomy of the eye area or fix tired eyes. Therefore, whatever the underlying cause may have been, the reality is that sagging eyelids and eye bags can only be fixed with a procedure called blepharoplasty – an eyelid surgery.

What happens during a blepharoplasty? 

Dr. Wise performs blepharoplasty procedures in his Joint Commission Accredited surgical facility in Wayne, NJ. The patients are anesthetized while Dr. Wise removes any excess skin and sculpts the underlying fat in the eye area to create a natural, non-operated look, which leaves no visible scars. The patients go home the same day, and see our surgical team for post-op care several times following the procedure in order to ensure proper healing and recovery.
