My Eyes Make Me Look Old

It is often said that the eyes are the first thing others notice when looking at your face, and for good reason. Because this feature is so prominent, it can be frustrating to look in the mirror and see eyes that give away your age. Wrinkles, sagging skin, and dark circles all contribute to an older appearance, and many patients are eager to find a solution to this problem. Dr. Bounds of Bounds Plastic Surgery performs blepharoplasty to address this concern and help you restore a younger, more refreshed appearance.

Why Your Eyes Are Giving Away Your Age

Time can usher in many wonderful things, such as wisdom and experience. Unfortunately, it also comes with bothersome signs of aging, especially around the eyes. As we age, the production of collagen, which gives skin its youthful glow and plumpness, begins to slow down. It is common to notice fine lines, deeper wrinkles, and excess skin, all of which make you look older, tired, or angry. You may also start to see increased puffiness and bags around the eyes, which is due to the weakening of surrounding tissues as well as fluid retention. Although this is all a natural part of getting older, it doesn’t make these signs of aging any less troubling for patients.

A Solution for Youthful Eyes

Your solution to refreshed, youthful eyes is blepharoplasty by Dr. Bounds. Also known as eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty is designed to significantly improve the eyelids. The surgery can be performed on the upper or lower eyelids. Sometimes, both eyelids are treated for a full rejuvenation. You will work with Dr. Bounds to determine where you need the most improvement.

Upper blepharoplasty: An upper blepharoplasty is ideal for removing excess sagging eyelid skin, and the underlying muscle can also be repaired during the treatment. In some cases, the extent of eyelid sagging (ptosis) can cause vision to be obstructed, meaning it is more than just a cosmetic concern.

Lower blepharoplasty: The lower lids become thinner over time, and the soft undereye tissues begin to bulge. A lower blepharoplasty treats prominent undereye bags by removing fat and skin from the lower eyelids.

Combining Treatments

Dr. Bounds understands that many patients who inquire about blepharoplasty likely have other areas of concern, such as jowls, wrinkles near the mouth, and deep forehead creases. The truth is that aging does not affect just one area of the body, which is why Dr. Bounds may recommend combining cosmetic treatments for even better anti-aging results. You will have the opportunity during your consultation to share all of your cosmetic concerns with Dr. Bounds, who will then craft a treatment plan with your goals in mind.
