The eyes are truly the “windows to the soul.” If our face tells a story, the eyes are like its punctuation marks – showing what we feel and signaling our expression and engagement. Tired eyes – often associated with excess skin on and around the eyelids – can produce a “frowned” look that communicates lack of expression or disengagement, even when that’s not at all what we’re feeling. Some people are even prone to “aging eyelids” – with extra skin on and around the eyelids or bulging bags under the eyes – through heredity, even in their teenage years. Eyelid surgery can make a difference in your expression and receptiveness, allowing your face to tell the real story of your emotions and expressions. It can also give you a smoother, more rested appearance and a younger, more vibrant look. It is often of greatest effectiveness done in concert with a facelift.
