Cosmetic Surgery

Eyebag Removal, Facelift, and Tummy Tucks

When skin tone is lost with aging, parts of the body begin to sag. Eyebags are one of the earliest signs of aging, giving a person a stressed and fatigued appearance. Upper eyelid eyebags are due to thinning of the skin and the muscle underneath it. Lower eyelid eyebags are mainly due to bulging of the fat pad inside the eye socket. Blepharoplasty tightens skin and removes excess fat. With aging, fat pads in the face slowly shift downward, pulling the skin with it and causing a noticeable sagging. Facelift surgery is a very delicate procedure that is best performed by a fully trained plastic surgeon. Poorly done, it can make the face look overly tight or misshapen, or worse. The very popular “tummy tuck” (abdominoplasty) is requested for a number of reasons. It used to be done mostly to correct stretched and deformed skin after a pregnancy. Now, it is becoming more popular among those who have lost weight rapidly (such as from stomach reduction surgery) and have excess skin. Tummy tucks are basically a twostep procedure. First, the underlying abdominal wall, along with its muscle and attachments, is tightened. Then, segments of the excess skin are removed. This procedure is more complex than other types of cosmetic surgery and also has a longer recovery period. With any kind of abdominal surgery, physical activities are restricted during the initial healing.
