As a society, we place a lot of importance on how our eyes look. After all, there’s a reason that false eyelashes, colored contact lenses, YouTube makeup tutorials, and Snapchat filters are so popular. Some even say that the eyes are the window to the soul. If that’s the case, you might be wondering if there is anything you can do to make your eyes pop just a little bit more in photos and in person. In our New York facilities, we have both non-invasive and surgical procedures that can give you a fresh face and allow your eyes to get the attention that they deserve. Here are a few of our more popular options, and we would be happy to sit down and discuss a custom plan for your own needs.
2017 is definitely shaping up to be the year of the eyebrow. It seems like every day we see new eyebrow trends and products, all claiming to help make your arches look on point and perfectly frame your eyes. If you’re ready to jump on board this trend, one option is a browlift, which can revitalize drooping or wrinkling foreheads and help you look less grumpy or exhausted. There are two methods for a browlift; while one is minimally invasive and the other involves sutures, both can smooth out fine lines and raise your arches, leaving you with a more youthful appearance.
Looking for something a little less dramatic? Another popular option microblading. By now you’ve probably heard all about this method and the way it replicates natural hair growth. To help you get the right look, we will help you choose a tint that best accentuates your natural beauty and frames your face without looking fake. You’ll be surprised how much of a change can come from such a simple technique, and the best part is that you will appear to have thick, groomed eyebrows 24/7 with only occasional maintenance to keep up the look.
When you think of plastic surgery options for your eyes, you likely first think of a blepharoplasty, more commonly known as an eye lift. This is a great option if you are tired of puffy, sagging skin making you look more tired than you actually are, or if your eyelids are drooping badly enough that they are causing trouble with your vision. During an eye lift, we remove excess fat, skin, and muscle around your eyelids that has accumulated or changed with age. Thanks to the surgical incisions that come with it, this procedure offers dramatic results, and accordingly, it takes about 10 days to completely recover. You may experience some swelling or bruising, and you should avoid wearing contact lenses for two weeks.
Are fine lines and crow’s feet what troubles you most? In recent years, injections have vastly improved the way you can reduce or eliminate these common wrinkles. A simple series of Botox injections can last up to six months and provide results in as soon as 24 hours. There’s definitely a reason it’s a favorite across the nation and with my New York patients.
