The Best Plastic Surgery Procedures for Younger-Looking Eyes

Monday, October 5th, 2015

Surgery for younger-looking eyesThe eyes have long been thought of as the focal point of the face, so it should be no surprise that many people seek ways to show off or enhance their eyes. The Plastic Surgery Specialists of Boca Raton offer several plastic surgery procedures that can help restore youth and beauty to your eyes. In this blog post, we discuss the most popular procedures and their benefits.


For people who want younger-looking eyes but are not ready to undergo a surgical procedure, BOTOX is a quick and minimally invasive option that delivers beautiful results. BOTOX injections treat fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face by relaxing the muscles underneath. This smooths out the lines and folds on the skin for a more youthful appearance. BOTOX is commonly used to treat crow’s feet and wrinkles around the eyes. The effects are temporary, however, so repeat treatment is recommended.


For many patients, unwanted signs of aging do not stop at the eyes. Sagging skin on the cheeks and lines around the mouth and nose can add years to your appearance, while hollow-looking areas on the face can be unsightly. Facelift surgery addresses all of these aesthetic concerns, as well as aging eyes. The procedure tightens loose skin for a smoother appearance and also redistributes fat and restores muscle tone lost due to aging. There are several types of facelift surgery available, all of which depend on the patient’s skin health, laxity, bone structure and other factors.

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery is an increasingly popular procedure among people who want a softer, younger-looking appearance. Over time, the skin on the eyelids loses elasticity, while muscle tone is lost and fat is displaced. This can cause someone to look unrested even after getting a full night of sleep. In some cases, the upper eyelids can droop so low that they interfere with a person’s vision. If any of these scenarios sound familiar, eyelid surgery can help. The procedure can help by removing excess skin and tissue and/or lifting and tightening drooping skin from the upper eyelids. As a result, the eyes look rejuvenated and brighter. Eyelid surgery can also minimize the appearance of dark under-eye circles by removing excess skin and fat from the lower eyelids, for a brighter, beautiful look.

Brow Lift

If your eyes appear to look hooded because of drooping, excess skin on the eyebrows, then you may be a candidate for brow lift surgery. This procedure restores youthfulness to the area above the eyes by diminishing wrinkles and creases between the brows that often create a “furrowed” brow look. The procedure involves making small incisions behind the hairline in order to raise and reshape sagging skin around the eyebrows. A brow lift can be performed along with a facelift to achieve a more youthful-looking facial appearance.
