We Have What You Need for Gorgeous Eyes

Brow Lift Surgery | Eyelid Surgery Cincinnati OH It is interesting how we look at our own eyes. We often don’t know how much they matter to our appearance until the signs of aging begin to creep in. It is nearly impossible to go through a lifetime without facing certain concerns related to the way our eyes look. That is one of the downsides of aging. On the up-side, we’ve got ways to manage these concerns, or even correct them for a long period of time. Here is what we routinely help people address with eyelid rejuvenation in our Cincinnati office.

Reasons for Eyelid Surgery

  • Hooded eyelids. The upper eyelids naturally look older when tissue sags to such an extent that the crease and curvature of this area is lost. In some instances, sagging becomes so severe that vision is obstructed. What to do: the way that we correct upper eyelid hooding depends on the severity of the problem and its actual cause. When the problem is excess skin, we can remove it with blepharoplasty. When the problem is that the brow is being pulled downward, pushing on the delicate skin of the upper eyelid, we may be able to inject BOTOX to reduce that pull. Another option would be to surgically lift the brow.
  • Undereye bags. Undereye puffiness is a prevalent problem affecting adults of all ages. The direct cause could be the natural aging of the skin, or there may be hereditary factors involved. Ultimately, puffiness occurs when overlying skin weakens enough to allow fat pads to protrude. This means that bags could get worse over time. What to do: One of the most common methods of treating undereye bags is to disguise them. We do this with dermal fillers in a treatment that takes less than 30-minutes. When bags are substantial or classified as festoons, or a patient wants longer lasting results, lower eyelid blepharoplasty is an appropriate approach.
  • Crepey skin. If you haven’t already heard, the skin around the eyes is some of the most delicate on your body. Everything from rubbing the eyes to spending time in the sun can degrade this tissue. Lines and wrinkles worsen as the skin becomes ultra-thin. What to do: What is needed for thin skin is support in the form of collagen. Non-surgical laser treatments may be ideal for the achievement of this goal.

Did you Know that Breast Lift Surgery Can Do This?

Breast Lift Cincinnati OH | Donna Krummen MD, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery When we talk about ways to enhance the overall appearance of the breasts, it is usually breast augmentation that gets all the attention. Dr. Krummen performs numerous breast implant surgeries every year and enjoys helping women obtain the shape they desire. Sometimes, though, the problems that exist can be handled in another way: breast lifts surgery.

Why Breast Lift Surgery May be Necessary

Look, every woman is going to notice changes in the structure of her breasts at some point. This change is as inevitable as the development of lines and wrinkles on the face. The idea isn’t to prevent it; it is to support a woman’s well-being through appropriate and personal care. Breast lift surgery is performed with the intent of reinstating proper form.

How A Breast Lift Restores Form

Here are some of the ways that proper form is restored through breast lift surgery.

Position

One of the most common complaints that women express is the sag that has occurred in breast tissue over time. Sometimes, this occurs later in life. Sometimes, breasts start to droop after weight loss or pregnancy and breastfeeding. Whatever the reason, the concern is valid. During her younger years, a woman gets used to her breasts being a littler higher up on her chest, a little perky and firm. Breast lift surgery can recreate this by literally lifting the tissue that supports the breasts.

Shape

When the hammock of tissue in which the breasts sit loses its structure, everything from position to shape changes. Breasts that used to have the volume all the way around may now carry all weight at the bottom pole, with a steep slope taking over the upper pole. Depending on the nature of degradation in supportive tissue, breasts may also appear to narrow into longer tubes (tubular breasts). Again, the key to beautiful change is to restructure the tissue that holds breasts in place. In this instance, it isn’t so much a higher position but the smaller nuances of structure that lend to voluptuousness.

Let’s Talk about The Nipples

Nipples are not pardoned from the metamorphosis of breast tissue. As a part of natural breast changes, there may be a change in the direction of the nipples. This means that they point downward instead of outward, exacerbating the saggy appearance that has developed.

Breasts that have changed position, shape, and direction may not need extra volume. To learn more about breast lift surgery, contact our office at 513.985.0850 to schedule a consultation.
