Although aging is appreciated when it comes to wine and cheese, most of us fear, resist, and deny it for as long as we can hide it – until the signs of aging become too apparent to ignore. Let’s face it, avoiding and neglecting the aging process isn’t going to make us look younger or feel better. In fact, the longer you wait, the harder it will be to prevent or slow down the progression. One of the first features people look at when they see you are the EYES. Coincidently, eyes are also the first to begin aging due to the thinness of the eyelid skin. Additionally, as we lose collagen, bone, and fat tissue in our faces, process known as mid-face descent, our skin sags and bags under the eyes develop. The longer you wait, the more fat accumulates, thus stretching the skin under the eyes. By choosing to remove the fat from the lower eyelids earlier in age, while the skin hasn’t had the opportunity to stretch, a much simpler procedure known as Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty can be performed. This less complex procedure can be accomplished with making a small incision on the inside of the lower lid, eliminating the fat and leaving no external scars. A Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty does not require any stitches and the recovery time is a minimal – only three to seven days.
Aging is inevitable, but we are lucky to live in the age when medical cosmetic achievements have given us an opportunity to look as young as we feel for longer time.
