Cosmetic Eye Surgery

It is without a doubt that the eyes is a source beauty, and it might as well be the most attractive feature in a person. That is why eye beautification becomes the main focus of all those who dream about perfection in beauty.

But one may abruptly wake up from fulfilling the dream of having beautiful eyes to face reality with dark eye circles, extra skin around the eye, spots, pimples, in addition to unwanted wrinkles, and puffy eye bags under the eye.

Dr. Waleed Abdulla, Fellow at the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS) and a board-certified plastic surgeon says: cosmetic eye surgery, is the art of identifying the problem and properly diagnosing it followed by the best approach to correct for it, in order to achieve the best possible results that makes the eye appear in its best form. For example, some forms of eye wrinkles respond better to botox injections while eyelid limpness respond better to new techniques of eye surgeries performed by experienced cosmetic surgeons. Also, these new techniques in cosmetic eye surgery are used to remove excess fat pad lying below the lower eyelids, a condition called periorbital puffiness or puffy eyes, where they can be surgically transformed such that they never appear again. The role of laser procedures also comes in to remove blemishes, spots, and dark circles around the eye.

It is worth mentioning that your eye health begins with healthy and balanced lifestyle, starting from getting a good night's sleep, drinking plenty of water, which is very important especially during the summer season. Also, wearing sunglasses to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, and getting the right amount of vitamins and minerals through a balanced diet which includes an abundance of fruits and vegetables.

It is also important to stress the negative effects of smoking on the skin, where it hastens the signs of old age on the skin, especially the skin surrounding the eye.
