Your Eyes and Ears

Don't bat an eye, you've come to the right place if you're thinking about eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)! This popular surgery can rejuvenate your upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both, providing a more rested and youthful appearance. We also cover Asian double eyelid surgery (or Asian blepharoplasty), a specialized cosmetic plastic surgery procedure that is becoming increasingly popular within this ethnic group. We will give you the ins and outs on all the important variables affecting your decision, including eyelid surgery risks, eyelid surgery recovery and eyelid surgery cost.

We also tell you what eyelid surgery can't do — namely, get rid of dark under eye circles. These unsightly shadows can be caused by a host of factors, from vitamin deficiency to fat loss. While blepharoplasty may not help get rid of them, we will tell you what does work, including fat injections, injectables and laser skin resurfacing. We even give you the 411 on how to choose from the growing number of cosmetics out there that promise to conceal dark circles and eliminate puffiness. This article is a must-read for anyone with dark under eye circles (and in today's fast-paced 24/7 world, who doesn't have them?).

Many doctors consider Latisse, a new eyelash-lengthening drug, to be the cherry on top of the sundae when it comes to improving the appearance of your eyes and eyelids. Lush lashes can really enhance your eyes, and our article tells you everything you need to know about Latisse, including what happens when you stop using it.

This section also includes important information on ear surgery, or otoplasty. Unlike other facial plastic surgery procedures, otoplasty is more commonly performed on young children than on adults. If your son or daughter has protruding, oversized or misshapen ears, otoplasty can be a life-changer. It can be performed when your child is as young as five, and may spare him or her years of teasing by peers. Adults, too, can benefit from otoplasty, as well as earlobe repair surgery. Our comprehensive articles will tell you all about ear surgery costs, ear surgery risks and ear surgery recovery.

Researching these procedures before your consultation can help you get more out of these important appointments. That's why we've made it easy for you. Good luck!
