The eyes are a prominent facial feature. It is the surrounding skin, rather than the eyes themselves that convey emotion. The skin tissues, muscle, fats, hair and lashes all contribute to the the wide array of expressions. Age, sun exposure, and heredity factors all contrbute to wrinkles, deep lines, and puffiness around the eyes.
The aging process can cause can cause unwanted changes in expression causing us to look permamnently fatigued and older than we really are. These changes can cause emotional distress and sometimes visual impairment.
An eyelid lift or eye bag removal called Blepharoplasty is designed to restore a more youthful appearance to your eyes. It may involve the upper, lower lid or both.
Aside from the traditional blepharoplasty cosmetic surgery using a blade to cut, Shinagawa Lasik and Aesthetic PH now offers bladeless blepharoplasty using a fine cutting laser which leaves much less bruising, less swelling, and faster healing time. The incisions are barely visible and leaves for a better cosmetic result than traditional method.
