More Rested Look After Eye Lid Surgery For Men

There are two kinds of eyelid surgery-

Upper blepharoplasty or the double eyelid surgeryLower blepharoplasty or the eye bag removal surgeryAfter the cosmetic surgeon has fashioned the perfect fold or got rid of the excess bags beneath, it is common knowledge that the area will swell a bit or might even bruise. After all, cosmetic surgery is not really natural for the body. The body will have to go through a healing process to return back to normal.

How does one get a more rested look after eyelid surgery?

First, common sense dictates that sufficient rest must be taken by the patient. Not just for eyelid surgery patients but for all kinds of surgeries. The body has just been under the knife and needs to replenish all the energy lost during the process.

Second, if the doctor advised any form of medication, the patient must follow it to the letter. The doctor knows best and must have recommended a particular form of medicine to quicken the healing process and possibly prevent any infections …

Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery Healing Process

For cosmetic eyelid surgery the simple answer is about two weeks. The reality is that there are so many factors that go into the healing process that in an individual’s case the healing time can vary. Wblepharoplasty healing hat affects healing time? Some factors that affect healing are which procedures are performed, how easily the patient bruises, how well the eyelids are taken care of during the postoperative period, and how good of a healer the patient is.

Upper eyelid blepharoplasty causes bruising and swelling that starts soon after the surgery. The bruising and swelling will worsen the day after the surgery. Most patients will start improving on the third day after surgery and many patients feel comfortable driving on this day. Simple tasks around the house can be done as long as there is no heavy lifting.

Stitches will be removed by Dr. Ebroon between the fifth and seventh day after surgery. Patients who can work while still being bruised and swollen often choose to work after t…

Vaginal Tightening - Your Own Designer Vagina

Vaginal Tightening - The no surgery way to a Designer Vagina

For the woman who has everything - Jimmy Choo shoes, Gucci Handbags and the latest Prada designs now comes Vaginal Tightening at a fraction of the Harley Street surgical version.

For women who've experienced childbirth, vaginal muscles tend to expand during the delivery, the result can often be weak, loose, vaginal muscles. It's the scenario that every woman dreads. If she asks her partner if it "feels the same" as before she had the baby he'll nod, unwilling to tell her that, urm, well, it's not as it used to be. A comment like that would be tantamount to saying her bum looks big. He just daren't go there.

I was that woman, after giving birth to a super 8 lb baby girl, no stitches; I was thrilled that I quickly managed to regain my figure. My breasts were firm and rounded, engorged with milk. No one ever tells you how incredibly sexy large breasts feel and as an AA Cup holder, it felt lovely to sp…

The Bad Side Of Eyelid Surgery

In 2005, blepharoplasty or cosmetic eyelid surgery was listed as the third most popular surgical procedure among men and women by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). Over 230,000 operations were performed in the United States alone.

In the United Kingdom, the same procedure proved to be even more popular. A similar survey showed blepharoplasty was the second most popular surgical procedure for both men and women with an increase of over 50 percent in the number of cases from the previous year.

“Cosmetic surgery is more popular than ever. Moreover, it is no longer just for the rich and famous. More and more people everyday are opting for plastic surgery to improve their looks and hopefully their lives,” according to an article in the web page of the Hilton Head Regional Medical Center in South Carolina.

In blepharoplasty, fat, excess skin, and muscle are removed from the eyelids to lift drooping upper eyelids and reduce puffy eye bags that form under the eyes. Uppe…

Top Reason Why People Get Cosmetic Surgery

Coping With Life Changes

Lots of things in life come our way that we don't expect some are positive, and some are negative. We may be dealing with a major lifestyle change, such as divorce or the death of a spouse. We may be about to get married. These and many other types of lifestyle changes prompt people to consider cosmetic surgery as a positive and restorative choice. There are as many stories as people, and we may have a story of our own that motivates us at some point in our life to think about cosmetic surgery.

Your Body After Childbirth

We may identify with the young mothers who come to plastic surgeons complaining about the changes in their breasts and tummies. Childbearing takes its toll, and exercise and dieting can only do so much. Today's fashions emphasize breasts and tummies, and if the breasts are saggy and our tummy skin is wrinkled, then we may want to do something about it.

Extra Fat and Excess Skin

Although we may exercise and eat right, but no matter what we d…

Eyelid Surgery Lifts Tired Eyes and Confidence

The eyes have been called the windows to the soul, but what if time has caused the curtains to shut?

As you age your skin looses the elasticity it once had during youth, causing bags to develop beneath the eyes. These fatty deposits can make you look old and haggard, even if you don't feel that way on the inside. Blepharoplasty, or an eyelid lift, can rejuvenate a tired look, giving you back the former sparkle of youth.

Eyelifts can be performed on either or both the lower and upper lids. While surgery on the lower is most often for cosmetic reasons, sometimes excessive drooping skin on the upper can impair vision, making the procedure a medical necessity.

Another reason for this procedure is the desire to create a "double eyelid." Those born of an Asian ethnicity often lack an extra crease, which can be created with blepharoplasty.

During the procedure, incisions are made near the lash lines or crease so any scarring will blend in naturally. On the upper lid, the loose skin…

Nose Job Without The Knife

What is a Nose Job Without Surgery?

A nose job without surgery involves using injectables such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, or Radiesse® to shape and contour the nose.

This is a relatively painless procedure that can be performed in just minutes. Radiesse is injected into predetermined areas of the nose to help camouflage the humps and bumps. Dr. Simoni, a Beverly Hills rhinoplasty specialist, says that some patients are afraid it will make their nose look bigger, but, on the contrary, it simply evens out the nose and makes it look like one smooth line. Candidates for Non Surgical Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)

A nose job without surgery is an excellent option for patients who want a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure and who are looking for fast, satisfying results.
Unfortunately, those with major nasal deformities and those who are looking to significantly reduce the size of their nose are not candidates for the non-invasive nose job. For these patients, surgical intervention is necessary.

Non-surgical …

Eye Lid Surgery Can Improve Vision and Appearance

Eyes are the windows to the soul. We've heard this over and over again through the years, but what does it really mean? The only way a phrase can become trite and cliché is if it has a serious basis in truth.

Consistently, study after study has shown that eyes are the first things we notice about people's faces when we meet them for the first time. A rough, haggard life can lead to rough, haggard looking eyes. This can not only affect how others see into your eyes, but how your eyes see the world. Fortunately, there is help available through minor plastic surgery.

Eye lid surgery, or blepharoplasty as medical professionals refer to it, is a simple procedure that can restore years to your face. In this relatively safe and easy procedure, surgeons can reshape and remove excess tissue from the eye lids.

One of the most common variations of this procedure is when excess tissue is removed from under the eye, eliminating 'bags' commonly associated with prolonged lack of sleep. …

Facelift, Browlift and Eyelid Lift Can Give Your Face a New Lease

Many patients decide to get a facelift, brow lift or eyelid lift to make the skin regain more of a youthful look. If done correctly, you face can look fantastic and you will experience minimal pain within the process.

As many individuals age, they notice little things in their skin that can cause them to look aged. Since most people want to look their best, they may want to correct these imperfections for a variety of reasons. Plastic surgery procedures can help some individuals regain more self esteem and can also help people feel better about themselves.

Since more and more individuals are getting divorced, they may want to look their best while trying to find a mate. Many people also feel a bit of age discrimination in the work place and may feel like a more youthful look will help them advance in their career. More and more individuals are considering facelifts, brow lifts and eyelid lifts.

Brow lifts and eyelid lifts can lift drooping eyebrows caused by aging. You can also remove ma…

Double Eyelid Surgery For Mono-Lids - What's Wrong With Natural Beauty?

Frequently discussed is the matter of double eyelid surgery. Many people want it, and just as many think it's a horrible idea. Coming from the latter camp, I've always wondered why people would undergo surgery to change something that really isn't wrong in the first place.

I love my single lids. They gives me more of a canvas for eye makeup. I'm used to them. They're a part of me, and I would never change them.

Many asian pop music stars become so-called "Americanized", which pretty much seems to entail breast implants and double eyelid surgery. I'm not going to get into implants here since I don't want to break my keyboard out of anger, but monolids are something unique that should not be changed.

Growing up, I actually used to resent having single lids. I eventually realized that double lids wouldn't do anything for me other than putting yet another hole in my pocket, right next to the one that makeup regularly enlarges.

Living in America, almos…

Eyelid Surgery - Small Change, Big Impact

Although eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) treats only a small area of the face, it has a dramatic impact on facial appearance. Dollar for dollar, blepharoplasty surgery has the best value of almost any facial plastic surgery due to the way we humans interact, eye to eye contact. Everything about our eyes is seen by others. The eyes do create a perception of how we look and feel to others....and there is very little we can do to hide their appearance. The eyes show age more than any other body part due to smiling, squinting, frowning, sun damage , and heredity.

As we age, we lose the crisp upper eyelid crease that conveys an open, welcoming appearance. As the eyelid skin loses its elasticity, the eyelid begins to fall, eventually even resting on the lashes. With the excess droopy skin, some fat is also lost creating a deflated appearance in some. Upper eyelid surgery helps restore a natural, youthful appearance by removing skin through an incision in the eyelid crease. In some cases, fat…

Blepharoplasty - Risk and Rewards of Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty is generally considered a cosmetic procedure that most insurance companies will not pay for the procedure, however, if your eyelids are encroaching upon your field of vision, the procedure may be covered as "medically necessary" surgery. This surgery requires approximately 1 week of recovery time before normal daily activities can be resumed, and because this is a surgical procedure, it is important that patients be in good health and free of any infections prior to undergoing this procedure. The difference between before-and-after photos can be quite dramatic, and people generally appear much younger and more refreshed after surgery.

Blepharoplasty procedures are performed by surgeons with specialized training in plastic and reconstructive surgery, and they are most commonly performed in outpatient facilities or in private professional offices. The surgery helps restore a more energetic and youthful appearance, and is an excellent procedure under local injecti…

Eyelid Surgery - Special Considerations For Older Plastic Surgery Patients

In 2007, the eyelid lift was the number one cosmetic procedure of the 55 and older crowd. That age group also accounted for nearly 50% of all the people having the procedure. Now, cosmetic surgical procedures certainly aren't just for the older crowd anymore.

Men and women in the 30s and 40s are turning back the years as well. However, because their skin still has good elasticity, they can use the non-invasive methods to regenerate their skin. As you get older, your skin loses elasticity and surgical techniques are the only way to truly get rid of the wrinkles and tighten the skin.

While surgical cosmetic work is common in people 55 and older, this means that the surgeon and the patient have to take more precautions. Here are some of the special considerations for older patients seeking an eyelid lift:

1. Overall health - This is not to say that everyone seeking plastic surgery that is less than 55 is in perfect health, but the chance of having certain health issues is increased with…

For the first two days or so after the operation, your incisions will be covered with ointment to keep them from scarring.

The point here is to prevent swelling or bruising…

How Does Laser Scar Removal Work?

During laser scar removal, a laser beam will be targeted at the scarred area. This can lead to dramatic results, as the laser takes away layers of skin to reveal healthy skin and smooth the area with the scar. There are several different kinds of lasers that are commonly used for scar removal, but all of them work in basically the same manner. These lasers are also used for laser skin resurfacing, which is essentially the same procedure without the goal of removing scarring. The laser chosen for your procedure will depend on your skin type and the kind of scarring you want removed. More severe scarring will require the use of more intense lasers, but this also increases the risk of side effects. Your doctor will determine which laser is right for your individual situation. Different types of lasers penetrate the skin to different depths.

For the laser scar removal procedure, you will wear special glasses to protect your eyes from the laser beams. After the skin is treated with an anest…

Is Getting a Tummy Tuck Something You Should Think About?

There are many women who are interested in having a firmer midsection. So, they start eating healthier and exercising profusely. In earlier times, women would hide a problematic midsection behind a corset. However, corsets were painful and restricting. Now, women have more choices than ever before as to what they can do about their midsection.

An option that some women might decide to have is a tummy tuck. In order to seriously begin considering getting such a procedure, it is important that women have a better understanding as to who makes an ideal tummy tuck candidate.

Blepharoplasty - Eyelid Surgery to Improve Vision

Eyesight is one of the most important senses for our elderly population. Good eyesight allows them independence and freedom to drive themselves to activities and appointments as well as to read, sew, do puzzles or watch television. When eyesight deteriorates with age, so does their independence. Not all eyesight loss is unavoidable and a procedure called blepharoplasty can help.

The skin around the eyes is the most delicate and naturally thin. As we age, this skin stretches and the eye muscles weaken. This process happens slowly for some and doesn't affect every day life. For others, the situation is more serious. Drooping eyelids can compromise vision by up to 50% or more. Some blepharoplasty patients claim that before eyelid surgery, their eyelids felt heavy and they felt tired even after eight or more hours of sleep. Many never realized that their vision was compromised until having an eye exam.

If the above describes how you're feeling these days, perhaps it's time to ma…

Eyelid Surgery - Why a Laser Eye Lift is Better Than Eye Cream

Modern eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the eyelids and remove tired eyes, bags under eyes, eye hoods, dark circles and eye wrinkles with much less down time and fewer complications than ever before. New laser eyelid surgery is faster with less bruising and no change in eyelid shape after surgery. Expecting an eye cream to remove eye bags is like putting an aspirin on top of your head to cure a headache.

What is also new is that the laser is used for eyelid surgery and a visible incision on the lower eyelid is no longer required. The new technique is called transconjunctival blepharoplasty meaning the incision for the lower eyelid surgery is made on the inside of the eyelid-thus no visible scar and no change in eyelid shape.

What Can Modern Laser Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty Achieve?
