What is a Blepharoplasty?

A blepharoplasty procedure is more commonly known as an eyelid lift. This popular surgery is an excellent choice for candidates who have signs of eyelid drooping, sagging skin, bags under their eyes, and more.

Blepharoplasty surgery is commonly divided into two categories: an upper blepharoplasty and a lower blepharoplasty. Here are the differences between the two:

  • Upper Blepharoplasty: This surgery is designed to correct bagginess around the upper eyelid, as well as the eyebrow region. The upper blepharoplasty surgery can also address skin folds, wrinkles, and lines that may make the patient appear as though they’re constantly tired or half-focused.
  • Lower Blepharoplasty: This procedure focuses on correcting common aging problems around the lower eye region, including undereye bags, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Lower blepharoplasty surgery is a great choice for candidates who […]

In order to learn the difference between Ultherapy and other laser treatments, let’s take a look at what the Ultherapy procedure entails in the first place.

Ultherapy is a skin-tightening treatment that uses laser heat energy to trigger collagen production levels within the dermis. The long-term collagen production helps to keep skin looking smoother and younger. Additionally, Ultherapy helps create an almost-instant skin-tightening effect, which minimizes the appearance of wrinkles while shrinking the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Ultherapy is an excellent […]

Do I Need an Eyebrow Lift or an Eyelid Lift

Are you getting enough sleep, but still feel as though you look tired and fatigued? Are you frustrated by the appearance of sagging skin around your eyes, and want a solution that’s going to help you look more refreshed and rejuvenated?

Then you might be an excellent candidate for an Eyebrow and/or an Eyelid Lift. Both procedures are aimed at correcting sagging skin that comes with the aging process. Both procedures have helped patients look more well-rested and refreshed, as well as turned back the clock on their appearance.

But when it comes down to it, which procedure is right for you – an Eyelid and/or an Eyebrow Lift?

 

Let’s take a look at the differences between the two procedures, as well as how to tell which one you might be a candidate for:

Eyebrow Lift: An Eyebrow Lift is a surgical procedure that’s meant to subtly lift drooping eyebrows. Many patients notice eyebrow drooping once it becomes difficult to apply eyeshadow, as eyelid skin disappears behind the sagging skin. An Eyebrow Lift gently pulls sagging eyebrow naturally taut, which helps correct sagging around the eyes while addressing unconscious forehead use and therefore forehead wrinkles. The goal is to restore the normal position of the eyebrow, not overly […]

Do I Need an Upper Blepharoplasty or a Lower Blepharoplasty?

If the eyes are the window to the soul, then they might be telling the world that you need a bit more sleep.  Sagging eyelids, undereye bags, and dark circles can make it look like you’re not getting enough rest, even if you regularly log in eight hours of sleep per night (if so, what’s your secret?).  That’s because the aging process breaks down fat pads around the eyes, creating sagging eyelids and undereye bags.  The eyelid skin is also really thin, making it that much more vulnerable to persistent wrinkles and fine lines.

A blepharoplasty procedure is a surgery designed to address sagging eyelids, undereye bags, fat pads, and significant wrinkles around the eyes.  This surgery is usually broken up into two procedures:  

  1. An upper blepharoplasty; and
  2. A lower blepharoplasty.

The upper blepharoplasty procedure is designed to treat sagging and wrinkles around the upper eyelid, while the lower blepharoplasty focuses on the undereye area. Which blepharoplasty procedure is right for you?

Here’s how to tell if you need an upper blepharoplasty procedure:

  • You have sagging upper eyelids
  • Your eyelids are […]

You’ll Want an Upper Eyelid Lift If…
