While I enjoy all aspects of Plastic & Reconstructive surgery, facelift surgery is particularly enjoyable to me and one of my favorite operations. Rejuvenation of the upper and lower eyelids is paramount to restoring a youthful appearance to the face.
As the face ages, the brow descends and skin accumulates around the upper lid and fat begins to herniate through the lower lid creating a tired appearance to the eye. While I do not encourage procedures during consultations, I often point out to patients who present for facelifts that small, subtle changes to the eye can yield a large difference. In this photograph one notices how effectively an upper blepharoplasty, or upper eyelid, procedure in conjunction with removal of fat from the lower eye can restore a youthful appearance to the face when utilized in conjunction with a facelift.
