The harsh Michigan weather can cause premature aging in a lot of my patients, particularly around the eyes. Whether it’s from squinting against the wind, or being so glad to see the sun again after a long winter that we forget to use enough sunscreen, the eyes are one of the first areas of the face to give away your age. With eyelid surgery, Detroit men and women can reduce these early signs of aging, effectively rejuvenating the entire upper face.

Reversing Aging Eyes

Few people realize how much visible aging in the eye area impacts their entire face. Those fine lines and wrinkles often end up giving away your true age, despite your best attempts to prevent them. Age also impacts the muscles that control your eyelids; as muscles become looser over time, eyelids become droopy, sometimes hanging low enough to obstruct your vision.

For very fine lines around the eyes, some patients find that noninvasive techniques like chemical peels can help their eye area look younger. For more advanced signs of aging, particularly those caused by muscular changes, an eyelid lift can make all the difference.

The Procedure

During eyelid surgery, tiny incisions are made within the natural creases of the lid. Through these incisions, I can tighten the underlying muscles, then carefully remove any excess fat deposits and skin that give eyes a puffy appearance. Laser technology allows me to give you the younger look you want, without the telltale scalpel scars that traditional Detroit cosmetic surgeons may leave behind, plus you’ll enjoy a faster recovery time. Before you know it, you’ll be back to your regularly scheduled routine, only you’ll look years younger than before.
