Every year the American Society of Plastic Surgeons releases data on procedures in the United States. They poll board certified plastic surgeons from around the country, including Dr. Roger J. Oldham of Bethesda, to determine which procedures are most sought by men and women in the previous year. In past years, women sought facial rejuvenation procedures more than any other family of surgeries. And, among them, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) was very popular, with more than 170,000 women having elected to have eyelid surgery in 2009 alone. Dr. Oldham, Bethesda board certified plastic surgeon, can tell you why.
For so many women, fighting the signs of aging can be a frustrating battle. But, the desire to look as young as we feel is not a new sentiment, and with the advances of modern science, is becoming more realistic and safe to pursue. With blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), doctors like Dr. Oldham, can achieve dramatic yet natural-looking results that remove decades from the eyes, making every expression brighter and more youthful. With blepharoplasty, incisions around made in the most inconspicuous site: typically in the crease of the upper lid or in the crease below the eyelash line for lower lids. Both sites allow for very inconspicuous signs of the procedure, as seen in these patients before and after blepharoplasty (eyelid lift surgery). With the great record for pleasing patients with truly effective anti-aging effects, it’s no wonder so many women sought blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)!
