Your eyes are the first when others look at your face. It creates a direct impression of your age, your energy level, and how tired you are. The eyes are also the first part of the face that shows the signs of aging. It is also important to note that when people see our eyes, they are not just seeing the upper eyelids or lower eyelids, they are seeing the entire region around our eyes. This includes the skin, the pits and circles under the eyes, and the sagging eyebrows.
Therefore, when developing an eye rejuvenation treatment plan, it is important to consider the changes that have occurred in the midface (upper cheek), eyebrows, skin, and volume.
The aging of the eyes begins in the mid-30s. One of the first signs of aging is a loss of volume in the lower lid region. This leads to depressions (lacrimation deformity) and dark circles under the eyes, which make the eyes look tired and drawn. Other changes occur over time. Puffiness or pockets along the lower lid region, the buildup of excess skin along the upper eyelids, deposition of the eyebrows, loss of volume in the midface and upper cheeks, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes are the other changes that result from aging.
After a comprehensive assessment of the age-related changes in the eye area, a much more differentiated treatment plan can be drawn up.
In general, the plan includes a variety of nonsurgical and conservative surgical modalities that, together, rejuvenate the eyes with minimal risk and downtime. This keeps the eyes revitalized and rejuvenated without changing the shape of the eyes or their function.
