Droopy skin on the eyelids can make you look stressed, tired, and older than you actually are. If you are tired of these wrinkles or bulges negatively affecting your appearance, your cosmetic surgeon might be able to help. Keep reading to learn more about Blepharoplasty and how it can give you real results:
This cosmetic surgery option involves a procedure in which the doctor makes a cut in the center of the upper lid and beneath the lash on the lower lid. The surgeon then removes the extra skin and fat that causes the bulge. The surgeon then uses a suture to close the incision carefully so there is minimal scarring. If necessary, the surgeon might tighten the eyelid to bring better results. Surgeons can also use laser resurfacing to further enhance the procedure.
Once healing is complete, patients should have younger-looking eyes without excess skin and fat. The procedure reduces the appearance of puffiness and heavy, droopy eyes and it might even help the patient see better. If your eyelids are your main issue, Blepharoplasty could be even more effective than a facelift.
The Best Candidates
Whenever you get any kind of cosmetic procedure, it is important to have realistic expectations of the results. Talk to your surgeon about your issues and how you expect the procedure to fix them. The doctor will also examine you to ensure that you are in overall good health in preparation for the surgery.

A cosmetic surgery center offers more treatment options than merely surgical procedures. Laser skin resurfacing is a non-surgical treatment that fixes imperfections on the face. This procedure can reverse the signs of aging and leave you with a more even, youthful appearance:
Target Areas of the Procedure
Laser skin resurfacing is a procedure that can treat fine lines, wrinkles, or even scars on around the eyes, mouth, or forehead. It is also a good option for issues resulting from sun damage, cigarette damage, and even aged skin. The laser is used to stimulate growth in the collagen and elastic fibers in the skin. Once the treatment and healing is complete, your skin will reflect an earlier time in your life.
The Procedure and How It Works
In just 30-90 minutes, your cosmetic surgeon can get you well on the way to better skin. The laser and a Computer Pattern Generator (CPG) are used together to get rid of the first three layers of the skin. This paves the way for a more precise laser resurfacing than other products bring. Before you leave, you will get a plastic membrane called a Tegaderm is placed over the treated area. You will return to the surgery center in about five days for a follow-up appointment at which the doctor will change out the Tegaderm.
If you want to get the best results, you have to follow a care regiment in the weeks after your treatment. You should wear oil-free makeup to get rid of redness that can occur from the procedure. It is also important to diligently wear sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30 whenever you are outside and avoid excess sun exposure.
If you are ready to see how laser skin resurfacing can work for you, Barbara L. Persons, MD and the team at Persons Plastic Surgery are here to help. With a reputation that spans the entire Bay Area, we provide treatments that bring you results you want. To learn more, call (925) 297-4614.

The Laser Lipo Procedure is designed to liquefy fat so it is easier to remove with traditional liposuction. In most cases, this is an outpatient procedure that does not even require sutures to close incisions.
The cosmetic surgeon will mark the specific areas that require treatment and then use the laser to warm and liquefy fat cells. This procedure can be used to target fat pockets in the face, the neck, the chin, the upper arms, the chest, the back, the flanks, the abs, the hips, and the thighs. Learn more in this video.

Even with a regular skin care routine, it can be hard to combat time. As a person ages, their cells do not replace themselves as quickly and less perfect cells are produced. The outer layers of skin start to thin out and lose elastin and collagen.
If your skin is aging, a visit to the cosmetic surgery center can help. With procedures like facelifts and laser skin resurfacing, you can reverse the negative signs of aging and once again enjoy a youthful appearance.
