The eyes account for a large part of the expression of the human face; they project an array of emotions including happiness, sorrow arid fear. Yet the eyes themselves are virtually expressionless structures. It is the contour of the skin - the tissue, muscle, fat, hair and lashes around the eyes - that conveys expression. Wrinkles and deep lines as well as puffiness of the lids begin to develop with the passage of time.
Exposure to the sun and genetic predisposition can also be contributing factors. The result can be marked changes in expression causing a tired and/or older appearance. These physical changes can produce anxiety and actual visual impairment. Today, several remarkable surgical techniques, including eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) and brow lift, have been developed to eliminate many of these problems.
Blepharoplasty can correct sagging eyelids, pouches beneath the eyes and excess folds around the eyes. This surgical procedure involves the removal of excess skin and fat on upper and lower eyelids and is often done in conjunction with other surgical procedures including face lift, brow lift and forehead lift.
Brow and forehead lifts are designed to raise eyebrows and reduce ridges arid furrows on the forehead, thus creating a smoother, more youthful appearance. As with blepharoplasty, this procedure is frequently done in conjunction with other surgeries.
