Los Angeles Cosmetic Eyelid Plastic Surgeon (Oculoplastic Surgery)
The first thing people see when they look at you is your eyes. When it comes to expressing thoughts and emotions, your eyes are an important facial feature for communicating these feelings. If your eyes look tired, people think you look tired. The thin layer of skin surrounding your eyes can begin to sag over time, which can cause you to look tired and beyond your years. In addition to making you look older, sagging skin around the eyes can also impair your vision. To regain a fresh, youthful appearance an eyelid lift or blepharoplasty can be performed to improve these effects of aging. in a Blepharoplasty procedure, excess skin, muscle, and fat may be removed or repositioned in the upper and lower eyelid areas. Your surgeon will first identify the lines and creases of the eyelids to disguise incisional scars among the natural folds of the skin. The incision for the lower eyelid blepharoplasty may be performed just under the eyelashes or inside of the eyelid. At the end of the procedure the surgeon places fine sutures to close the wounds which will minimize the scars. An average blepharoplasty procedure can take one or two hours to perform depending on the extent of your surgery. Complementary procedures such as a facelift, neck lift, mini lift, or skin resurfacing can be performed at the same time. You may want to discuss these procedures with your surgeon. Establishment of a good rapport between doctor and patient will help to ensure realistic expectations and desired results.
Skin changes are among the most visible signs of aging. These changes are most noticeable in the face which is the most visible feature of the body. Although our skin has many layers, it can be generally divided into three main sections; the epidermis, the dermis and the hypodermis. The epidermis is the outermost layer of the skin covering the entire body from head to toe. It acts as a barrier, protecting the body’s inner cells from germs and other harmful substances such as UV light. The skin’s middle layer is called the dermis and contains important proteins called collagen and elastin which give it strength and elasticity. The dermis layer also contains specialized glands called sebaceous glands which produce an oily substance called sebum that lubricates the skin and keeps it soft and smooth. The bottom layer, called the hypodermis, is the thickest layer of the skin and contains fatty deposits that insulate the body and help absorb shock. All three of these skin layers contribute to the aging process. As a person ages the skin appears thinner, because the underlying fatty deposits shrink over time. The sebaceous glands also produce less sebum, which causes the epidermis to become drier, and dry skin is much more likely to develop wrinkles.
The dermis layer also produces less collagen and elastin which causes the skin to lose strength and flexibility. It also takes longer for aged skin to repair itself. In some cases, aged skin can take up to four times longer to heal than younger skin. These changes lead to dry and sagging skin, deep lines, wrinkles, and the possible development of age spots or other skin growths. While aging is the main cause for these changes other factors may include; years of sun damage, poor nutrition, high-stress levels ,pollution, and lifestyle choices such as smoking, alcohol, and drug abuse. The appearance and health of our skin impacts how we feel about ourselves and how others see us. While taking good care of your skin and having a healthy diet can delay the aging process, the underlying changes that age skin are inevitable.

Undergoing any Plastic surgery procedure is very is a very personal decision that should be made in conjunction with your doctor. Choosing your doctor, and establishing a good relationship is the right foundation prior to performing any surgery.
