I’m frequently amazed at the number of patients who come to me with minor skin blemishes who waste huge sums on surgical and laser correction no one will ever notice.
Surgically, the most “bang for your buck” is simple eyelid surgery… blepharoplasty. The procedure can be done in the office under local anesthesia with, occasionally, mild IV sedation. The downtime is minimal and generally consists of wearing sunglasses for a week (not a bad idea in the summer anyway, since UV rays cause cataracts!). Furthermore, your vision will probably improve because you’ll get less “dry eye” and your eyes won’t get as tired.
Redundant skin is carefully removed, bulging fat pads can be trimmed and the results take away 5-10 years in 45 min to an hour.
The scars are concealed in normal skin creases and, are even MORE invisible because who doesn’t wear eye shadow?
Just a thought for the day.
