Eyelid surgery to look younger
Eyelid surgery to look younger is very popular in Charlotte NC. The procedure is subtler and less obvious than even the most skillfully done face lift, and is as rejuvenating as a neck lift. With the slightest change to the eyelids, you can look younger, more alive and awake, and above all, more attractive.
And the slightest change is probably all you’ll want done — we’re talking about your eyelids, after all, the things that protect your eyeballs. Eyelid surgery to look younger requires a skilled and delicate hand, and a deep understanding of the anatomy of the eyelid. In fact, there are different blepharoplasty procedures used on the upper eyelid and the lower eyelid. They are sometimes done alongside other procedures such as laser skin resurfacing or BOTOX.
The different procedures
A surgeon performs an upper eye lift by making an incision along the fold of the eyelid and removing excessskin, fat and muscle. This sometimes comes with or other cosmetic treatment. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. A very effective procedure for the lower eyelid is the SOOF lift blepharoplasty. SOOF stands for suborbicularis oculi fat, the tiny deposit of fat under the lower eyelid. This deposit slowly sinks into the upper cheek as you age and the tissue that should hold it in place relaxes. A SOOF lift blepharoplasty reverses this process to make your eyes look naturally younger.
