What is the Difference Between an Upper and Lower Eyelid Lift?

As we get older, our skin can begin to sag and fat deposits can begin to accumulate in places we don’t want them – even around the eyes! This extra skin and fat can make us look tired and older than we really are. Blepharoplasty is a procedure that can take years off your appearance and includes upper eyelid surgery or lower eyelid surgery. Upper Eyelid Surgery During upper eyelid surgery, an incision is made in the natural crease of the upper eyelid. Extra fat, skin, and muscle is removed or redistributed and the remaining skin is lifted for a more youthful appearance. Upper blepharoplasty leaves a patient looking refreshed.

What are the Best Options for Non-Invasive Body Contouring?

For a long time, liposuction was the only way to contour the body. An invasive procedure that involves incisions, many people were wary of the scars and recovery time. With advances in technology come many options for non-invasive body contouring. But which ones are the best?

UltraShape destroys the fat cells in the focal area and increases blood circulation and lymphatic system activity to expedite the clearance of the liquefied fat.
