The eyes are often one of the first areas to show the tell-tale signs of ageing, with drooping lids and tiny deposits of fat that reveal a tired, aged appearance. In the past, surgery was the only solution, but this could lead to the “windswept” appearance common with facial surgery procedures. Today, an emphasis on natural results has led to additional techniques in eyelid surgery that produce a more youthful, natural result.

The Ageing Process
Over the years, small deposits of fat can collect in some areas of the face and body, including the area under the eyes. This process leads to the appearance of eye puffiness, which can make you look perpetually tired or sad. In addition, loss of skin elasticity can create drooping upper eyelids, affecting both your appearance and your line of vision. At the same time, the ageing process can diminish youthful volume and give a hollow look to areas like the tear troughs and cheekbones.

Blepharoplasty Opens the Eyes
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to restore an alert appearance to the eyes by removing excess skin and fat from the upper and lower lids. This procedure can be performed for both cosmetic and functional purposes – to enhance your appearance and improve your vision. Blepharoplasty can be tailored to the specific needs of each patients, ensuring you get the precise results you are looking for.

Fat Transfer Creates a Youthful Facial Profile
Fat transfer removes isolated fat deposits that contribute to the “puffy” look and redistributes it to areas in need of volume restoration. For example, fat from the lower lid can be used to smooth out the tear trough area or create definition in the cheekbones. When fat transfer is combined with the tightening effects of blepharoplasty, the results can be truly dramatic.

Fat transfer is often a preferable treatment over injectable dermal fillers for restoring volume. Unlike dermal fillers, fat transfer uses the patient’s own tissue to create a natural result without risk of an allergic reaction. While dermal fillers require ongoing treatments to maintain their results, fat transfer results are permanent. That means just one procedure and recovery period will give you the look you want for a lifetime.
