NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 25, 2014) - According to Manhattan plastic surgeon Stafford R. Broumand, MD, virtually everyone can benefit from eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) at some point in their lifetime. The dependent factor, he says, is timing, which may be earlier in life for some people or later down the road for others. "Over time, skin tissues surrounding the eyes will begin to sag, fat in the eye region will start to shift, and various supporting structures of the skin will tend to fluctuate. These signs of aging may begin to show as early as your 30s or 40s, or they may not manifest until you reach your 60s. Regardless of when they become apparent, they are inevitable, which is why everyone can benefit from blepharoplasty at some point in time."

In addition to timing, Dr. Broumand notes that a subtle approach to eyelid surgery during which the character of one's face is not altered by an excessive removal of particular structural elements is also imperative to maximizing the benefits of the procedure. At his practice, the Manhattan plastic surgeon customizes his blepharoplasty technique based on each patient's unique needs and goals, though his intent is always to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes without exhibiting any obvious signs of surgery.

As noted in a recent blog post regarding what eyelid surgery entails, this inconspicuous approach often involves the tightening of sagging skin and connective tissues as well as the removal of excess skin and fat in the upper and/or lower eyelids. "When removing fat," Dr. Broumand says, "I take great care not to take out too much because volume is actually what helps achieve a youthful look for the eyes."

Ultimately, Dr. Broumand says the goal of eyelid surgery is to keep the volume, get rid of extra skin and bags underneath the eyes, and resurface the lower eyelid skin to diminish sun damage, aging, and wrinkles. By employing the correct approach, he adds, all of this can be accomplished to produce a more rested, rejuvenated appearance.
