I’m often asked, “what age is the right time to consider surgery?” The truth is that the answer is different for everyone. Aging is a complex process that involves both genetic and environmental factors.
The eyes, in particular, are one of the first areas to show signs of aging. For some, these changes can begin to develop as early as the mid-30’s. As we age, our upper eyelid skin begins to sag and become redundant. This can weigh down the upper eyelids, decreasing the amount of light that reflects from our eyes, making them appear dull, tired, or even sad. Upper eyelid rejuvenation, or blepharoplasty, is the procedure that reverses these signs of aging with the goal of restoring a youthful gaze.
Like many, this beautiful patient started noticing a heaviness to her eyes in her late 30’s. Botox didn’t seem to be helping much, so she was referred to my Menlo Park plastic surgery practice for a surgical solution. She is now 3 months healed from her upper and lower eyelid rejuvenation and we are both amazed at her results.
Just look at the transformation of her eyes from tired and dull to refreshed and vivid! She is such a fun and outgoing person with an amazingly busy schedule. Her eyes now match the energy she exudes! I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to care for her.
