The eyes are perhaps the fastest aging structures in our face. Typically by the late twenties and early thirties, there is evidence of loose skin and fat herniation of the lower lids. These changes can be accelerated by genetics, smoking and sun damage. In addition, aging of the brows can lead to “hooding” and excess fullness in the upper lids.

The eyes can be sufficiently rejuvenated with a fairly quick two-hour outpatient procedure. The excess skin is removed while the fat pads are taken out to get rid of the “tired” look. Typically, the bruising lasts 5-7 days. If a brow lift is needed, it is done through a camera and a scope (endoscopic brow lift), so no long scars are left on the scalp. Risks are minimal with these procedures.
