If the eyes are the window to the soul, what are your eyes communicating to the world? Do they align with how you really feel about yourself? Do they suggest that you’re older than you are, and that your lifestyle and medical status is unhealthy? All of us can appear tired from time to time, due to factors such as a poor night’s sleep (we are tired!) or dehydration. But, as skin begins to lose structural support and elasticity, “worn” and exhausted eyes may become a static feature of your face that doesn’t match your inner vibrancy and health.
Treatments for aging eyes in NYC at the office of Board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Edmund Kwan, is designed to lift or awaken a tired periorbital region around the eyes. Removing excess tissue below or above the eyes or adding volume to “fill in” sunken brows or undereye areas, can take years off your overall facial appearance. Also, Dr. Kwan has significant experience and training in the treatment of upper eyelid folds, droopy eyelids (“ptosis”), and undereye bags among patients across a diverse spectrum of ethnic backgrounds. So, patients can predictably reach their goals for cosmetic improvement, while still preserving their ethnicity.
Depending on the extent of laxity and drooping associated with eyelid ptosis, Dr. Kwan’s tailored treatment plans can literally “open up the eyes,” allowing you to see clearly again, increasing ocular function and boosting your quality of life. Depending on what he finds during a facial assessment, Dr. Kwan may recommend either:
- Surgical intervention with blepharoplasty, performed through very small incisions that are precisely placed and well-hidden in the creases, or
- injections designed to inject volume and youthful vitality back into periorbital areas vulnerable to fat loss, via harvesting purified fat from other parts of your body and redistributing it to the temples or tear troughs
The office of Edmund Kwan, MD allows you to “try on” treatments before procedures are scheduled. He is among the few practitioners in the United States to offer the Vectra 3D imaging system. Using sophisticated software, you can see how various facial treatments improve the appearance of the upper and lower eye region. The system is also a great tool for Dr. Kwan to illustrate the techniques that are used to remove excess skin, tighten muscles that may pull the eye downward, and augment shallow areas under the eyes or at the temples.
Regardless of if blepharoplasty surgery is in order, or fat injections, treatments to fight aging eyes are performed by Dr. Kwan from an AAAASF-certified surgical facility. Edmund Kwan, MD is equipped and qualified to safely administer all types of sedatives, including general anesthesia and IV sedation. His three offices are conveniently located across NYC — in Manhattan, Queens, and Fort Lee, NJ. Exceptional skill, technologies, and facilities are within reach for patients on a budget.
