Nothing ages a face more than the eyes. If you are weary of looking tired and appear much older than you are, you can rejuvenate your appearance with blepharoplasty, also called an eyelid lift or eyelid surgery. The blepharoplasty procedure will make your eyes look younger by smoothing and firming up the eyelid skin, reducing the hooded appearance and removing bags under your eyes.
Blepharoplasty or eye lid surgery is one of the most effective and popular cosmetic procedures in the US. It involves surgery on either the upper or lower eyelids. In the case of the upper eyelids, this includes repairing droopy eyelids by removing excess skin, muscle and fat, or removing wrinkles. If it is carried out on the lower lids, then it is usually performed to reduce the puffiness or ‘eye bags’ that are commonly seen under the eyes.
You need to have realistic expectations regarding the outcome of this type of surgery. This procedure will reduce your tired appearance and improve your confidence and self-esteem. As long as you are clear about why you want this type of surgery and have discussed your reasons thoroughly with your surgeon then you should be suitable for this type of procedure.
The vast majority of patients who have blepharoplasty performed are happy with their new and improved appearance and state that they feel more confident, enjoy a greater sense of well being and overall, an improved quality of life.

Microdermabrasion safely exfoliates the skin without chemicals or laser and is one of the most requested non-invasive cosmetic procedure. MegaPeel microdermabrasion uses crystals to gently resurface superficial layers of the skin. It is appropriate for all skin types and reduces pores, pigmented lesions, sun damage, uneven skin tones and dull, lifeless skin.
Chemical peels are acids that are applied to remove the outermost layers of the skin. There are superficial peels which involve no recovery or “down” time and deeper peels which give more dramatic results but require a recovery period of a few days to a week. Visible improvements may be seen in pore size, wrinkles, acne scars and pigmented lesions or sun damage.
FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER RESURFACING
Unlike dermabrasion and chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing uses a very high energy beam of light to dramatically improve scars, lines, wrinkles, sun spots and other skin defects. The laser light penetrates to a controlled depth which is tailored to each individual patient. The procedure can usually be done right in the office with mild post-operative discomfort and recovery time.
