I’m 48 but my eyes say otherwise! What can I do to make my eyes look younger and not so saggy??? I look so tired.


I hear this from my patients frequently. Blepharoplasty (surgery performed to improve the appearance of eyelids) is an excellent solution. I believe this is one of the most rewarding procedures because you will literally “see” your looks transform and improve!

For many individuals, an upper blepharoplasty can be done under local anesthesia in my office. The procedure is outpatient, lasts about one hour and is virtually painless. Results are usually seen in less than one week with appropriate care (avoiding aspirin prior to the procedure; 2 or 3 post-op sessions of manual lymphatic drainage therapy). Final results will take several weeks for swelling to resolve completely, but you are able to resume normal activities including vigorous exercise in 2 weeks relatively quickly (1 week or less).

In addition to this procedure, I would recommend:

  1. A daily routine of a good eye cream
  2. Latisse™, a prescription strength product that has been clinically proven to lengthen, thicken and darken eyelashes with continued use.
  3. Regular Injections of Neurotoxins (Botox or Dysport) to maintain brow position and reduce wrinkles.

These steps will have a transformative effect!
