The Eyes are the Reflection of the Soul
It is said that the face is the reflection of the mind, but the eyes are the reflection of the soul. Whether happy or sad, smiling or tired, the eyes give away one’s very feelings and emotions.
The eyes also reveal our age and the state of our health. Like any other part of the human body, fat can accumulate in the folds of your eyelids causing heavy bag-like bulges that can cause hooding, drooping, or sagging, making your eyes look years older and affecting your overall facial appearance. These conditions can be hereditary or lifestyle related. Moreover, these conditions can affect your peripheral vision if left untreated.
The good news is that you don’t have to live with this unattractive look. With blepharoplasty (eyelid reconstruction surgery), you can easily eliminate your drooping, sagging, and tired eyelids and look years younger in a little as ten days.
If you live in the Midwest, the only surgeon to see is Dr. Wafik A Hanna, a board certified facial cosmetic surgeon with over 30 years of experience specializing in blepharoplasty while serving clients in Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Indiana and Michigan. Dr. Wafik Hanna successfully performs hundreds of eyelid surgeries each year and has been well recognized as the premier expert in the procedure throughout his distinguished career.
During blepharoplasty, Dr.Hanna carefully removes the excess fat and skin around the eyelids giving the patient a more youthful and revitalized appearance. The procedure requires a small incision made in the natural crease of the upper lid, and the excess fat and skin is removed and the eyelid sutured. A small, inconspicuous incision is placed below the lower eye lash, and the excess skin and fat is then removed from the lower eyelid. The procedure involves minimal discomfort to the patient and leaves no scaring and no evidence of a noticeable incision. Eyelid reconstruction surgery when performed along with other elected facial procedures such as a face lift or eyebrow lift can beautifully rejuvenate your facial appearance.
Best of all, nobody need ever know you had eyelid surgery. They will just wonder at your youthful look and keep guessing how you did it. They might even be a little envious!
